Denise Mino has taken Mike Carey's place as the writer for this series. I'm a little sorry to see Carey go, as I think he did some excellent things with the character, but I'm excited to see what directions Mino takes things in. This is a good start. Mino's John Constantine is a little more vulnerable than we're used to seeing, but I think it works. She said in an interview that she sees Constantine not as a true cynic, but as an idealist who's been let down too many times, and I think that's pretty apt.

I did feel in this collection that she's still trying to find her footing; there's a pretty huge info dump toward the end that just doesn't work 100% -- basically, a character shows up expressly for the purpose of giving Constantine (and the reader) a huge amount of much-needed information, but it's not clear how or why this character knows all this. The central premise, however, that a cult is causing people to feel empathy for one another to a detrimental degree, is pretty brilliant, especially since empathy is something Constantine fights constantly against. I liked this well enough that I was tempted to run out and buy the subsequent single issues that Mino has authored.
