I agree with most of what's been said here. I thought at first I wasn't going to like the artwork, especially after the previous issues, where it has been exceptional, but it quickly grew on me. It was the funniest thing I have seen for ages and obviously carried the story arc on a bit. I have met loads of real-world people like Tommy (plus a few who'd really like to be John) but the version of Tommy on the cover, I could swear I know the guy, however unlikely it is that it's really based on somebody I know!

I'll give it an 8.

These hampsters with their furry faces and vegan diets all look the same, d00d.

Did I say hampster? I meant hipster.

I thought the opening few pages were close to genius. It devolved into a Shallow Reading Of Constantine™ — I mean, Delano's Constantine would have been okay with Tommy, and that's the definitive version of Constantine if you ask me — but Spurrier has built up such a reserve of goodwill that I was basically okay with it. Still one of the best things on the shelf these days.

is it worth mentioning the Constantine parody who turned up in Bec and Kawl in 2000AD? (Can't find any gifs online, sadly.)

Spurrier's possibly been waiting a long while to take his shot at writing John boy...
