I really hope Manco attacks Conjob with a ghost shark.

 

Looks like it'll be exciting enough.

 

Who did Fabry draw on that cover? It's not Constantine.

 

...John Constantine is on a beach in Ibiza.

With a Brazilian model.

And a fruity drink.

 

...Demonic possession. Chas has to solve something with demonic possession.

Actually if you took any reference to Conjob out of that solicit and cover, I rather like it.

Yeah, it's not a bad cover, other than the part with John playing Tony Stark.

Although, the thought of him going to a warm beach while still wearing the trenchcoat and dress clothes is pretty funny.

 

If I was unfamiliar with the comic and read this, "cannibalistic war mage Mako", I'd start laughing. That's not good.

The Chas cover looks good except for one thing...when did John de-age to 18?

Don't be silly, people don't de-age, they regenerate! :P

 

Well, it seems that Mark regenerates anyway...

I like BOTH the covers. the Bermejo one is intriguing and strange. The fabry one suggests to me that the answer to the question about his use of lurid colours in his recent work is that he'd been saving the good colours for this. Really interesting textures, subtle colours. The humour of JC with a daft-looking cocktail is great, even thouigh it doesn't actually look like him.

well demon blood is for good for the skin, not so much for the mind or the soul.

 

That's ok for me, I don't have a mind or a soul. Or mind and sould don't have a me - I forget which...
