The Hellblazer # 14

Recommended Posts

Picked up issue # 14.  While it didn't grab me as tightly as the previous issue, it was still really good.  Having gone so long without a decent Hellblazer fix, this one just feels right on so many levels.  If Seely can stick the landing next issue, I'll be really happy.  Artwork was pretty ace, too, nice and gritty without sacrificing storytelling or clarity.  Nice use of mythology, a plot that's engaging, and a really nice bit of magic in a pub.  

This story gets a thumbs up from me, here's hoping # 15 continues the trend.

I will say, though, both covers for this issue were awful.  I'm not a fan of Seely's art as much as his writing, and the Yasmine Putri cover wasn't much better.  I don't know what it is with Putri, sometimes she has some really solid cover work for the series, other times John looks like a 12 year old playing dress up.  Very strange.

Another good issue, I liked the idea of places having memories and how it was used in the issue. Looking forward to 15
