With this issue, James Tynion IV and Ming Doyle have captured the essence of John Constantine. The plot centers upon John's efforts to track a supernatural menace that proves capable of killing ghosts - something that John believes to be impossible. But John is wise enough to know that he doesn't know everything yet remains arrogant enough to believe there is nothing he can't overcome on his own with a little investigation and fishing around.
The artwork on this series has grown on me, after a seemingly erratic first issue. Riley Rossmo's design for John looks a little less cartoonish and a lot less like Astro Boy this time around. And the color palette utilized by Ivan Plascencia seems more varied and less washed-out than last time.
