    From out of the pages of Swamp Thing comes John Constantine: man of mystery, risk-taker, thrill-seeker, master of the supernatural! After leading Swamp Thing through dark journeys in the legendary 'American Gothic' saga, this man obsessed with power and driven by inner demons sets off on his own excursions into the dark corners of the world. Constantine's knowledge of the occult is his stock in trade and his influence upon the supernatural realms makes him the only man to call when the horrors beyond our mortal realm threaten! Not that he's always successful in his missions...a man like John Constantine has many past failures that are always haunting him...literally! In this special 40-page premiere issue, Constantine must travel from the heart of London to the jungles of Africa and to a church in Greenwich Village...all in search of a deadly, insatiable spirit which consumes whatever and whoever crosses its path!
