The god con seems like a pretty sweet gig for a magician -- until you end up with a hole in your chest and the words "thank you" scrawled in your own blood beside you.
That's what's going down in San Francisco when one of John Constantine's old pals gets fried in Hellblazer #16, available November 22. And he's just the latest victim in a pattern of murders targeting magicians who gather a flock and take on godhead status just to make a buck.
Written by Richard Kadrey (of the Sandman Slim series) with art by Davide Fabbri, a cover by Jesús Merino, and variant cover by Yasmine Putri, this Wednesday's issue is part one of the new arc, "The Bardo Score."
Dropping Constantine in the middle of a city he loathes maybe as much as his friend's killer, our favorite drinking, smoking, degenerate spellcaster is on the case.
