‘The Sandman Universe Presents: Hellblazer’ Writer Si Spurrier: The Horror News Network Interview

John Constantine has been a perennial favorite ever since he slid his way out of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing (way back in 1985) and into his own series, which would forever associate the characters with the moniker, Hellblazer.  Constantine has undergone many revamps and reimaginings ever since, but the one constant with the chain-smoking magician has always been the talent that the characters and series has attracted, namely a who’s who of the greatest writers in comic book history.
