DC comics is expanding its Black Label imprint, which is for mature audiences, by adding a new John Constantine: Hellblazer series to its ongoing lineup this fall.
John Constantine will first appear in Neil Gaiman's The Sandman universe in the one-shot The Sandman Universe Presents Hellblazer #1, by writer Simon Spurrier and artist Marcio Takara, due out on October 30. After that, as revealed in DC November solicitations, he'll appear in a solo series by Spurrier and Aaron Campbell, John Constantine: Hellblazer, which will see the troubled expert occultist returning for a second chance and allying himself with some seedy characters.

- John Constantine is back in London, back to his old tricks—and just in time, as things have become very dark indeed in his old stomping grounds. A small-time gang lord has found himself dealing with a big-time outbreak of supernatural weirdness...and without any allies to call on and nothing left to call his own, John doesn’t have much choice about taking a paycheck from one of London’s worst, or accepting the help of one of the gang lord’s would-be foot soldiers. But what should be an open-and-shut exorcism turns out to be nothing but...and the author of this madness may just be getting started on their terrible masterpiece!
- The original Constantine is back in this series from Si Spurrier (The Dreaming) and Aaron Campbell (Infidel), with nothing to his name but decades of bad memories and an unearned second chance. How, exactly, will he squander it? There’s only one way to find out...
