HELLBLAZER: JOYRIDE, the trade paperback collection of my first 8 issues, is on sale this week, featuring the stunning artwork of Leo Manco and an introduction by British novelist and screenwriter Stephen Gallagher.
Here's what the great and the good have had to say about it:
"Andy Diggle and Leonardo Manco are writing my favorite John Constantine since Ennis and Dillon. A must-read."
-- Brian K. Vaughan
"Diggle’s conjuring a spot-on take of Constantine’s character, a sexy-dangerous-but-likable mix of the Brian Azzarello conman with the worldly magician of his original English roots. A must-read."
-- Wizard (Book of the Month)
"You'd be well-served to start at the beginning of Diggle's run, because this is the best work of fiction John Constantine has been involved with in years."
"This is already the best HELLBLAZER since Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon were in charge... This is subtle, well-considered writing with a creeping, gradual sense of dread. It's very impressive."
"Like Diggle’s take on Constantine’s world, Manco’s art shows no mercy and spares no-one... HELLBLAZER is as good as it’s ever been. GRADE: A+"
"If you haven’t jumped on board yet, you better hurry up."
