Hellblazer #280 by Vertigo/DC comics. Written by Peter Miligan, Drawn by Gael Bertrand. $2.99. Continuing on with the story of Gemma, John is called to an old warehouse that Gemma, with help conjured a demon to get her revenge on him. Even though he didn’t do it it was a demon masquerading as him. The writer is attempting to bring Gemma Constantine into the storyline again, if not to make her a mage like her Uncle John. You see how her life we perfect up until the point the demon raped her looking like John. She had her life on track, had put John and his magick in the past, and was getting on with her life. Guest artist Gael Bertrand brings a style to the art that brings out characters feelings and torments really well, and even though it isn’t as dark as the regular artist, it still is a very good compliment to the story and title as a whole. Again, Hellblazer is a constant good read that keeps you coming back for John’s next crazy encounter. I do have to say, I’m not sure on his recent marriage in the title, but I’m willing to go along with it to see what is in store.
