Publisher Comments:

Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of TRANSMETROPOLITAN, PLANETARY, THE AUTHORITY and the writer and co-creator of the graphic novel RED, which was the basis of two major motion pictures.   He is also the author of the NYT-bestselling novels Gun Machine and Crooked Little Vein.  His newest publication is the digital short-story single Dead Pig Collector, from FSG Originals.

His awards and recognitions include the NUIG Literary and Debating Society’s President’s Medal for service to freedom of speech, the EAGLE AWARDS Roll Of Honour for lifetime achievement in the field of comics & graphic novels, the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire 2010, the Sidewise Award for Alternate History and the International Horror Guild Award for illustrated narrative.

Ellis lives outside London, on the south-east coast of England, in case he needs to make a quick getaway.

Review:

"John Constantine is about to get his own TV series, and this compendium of iconic Hellblazer stories will serve as a good intro, paying proper blazing tribute to the demented mage's dark humor and seditious sassy-ness. In one story, a documentary film crew hell-bent on uncovering the truth behind Constantine's short-lived career as a lead singer for the punk band Mucus Membrane meets an awful fate. The tale gets top marks thanks to the kinetic gutter art of Sean Murphy and writer Jason Aaron's savvy media circus insider narrative. While less overtly shocking, the other stories in this collection are equally captivating, tackling many of the socio-political themes that have become intrinsic to the long-running, regular series. The title story — long unpublished at DC because of squeamishness over the content — is about a mysterious spate of shootings by schoolkids, and, as in other Hellblazer adventures, the solution is far from obvious."
