John Constantine: Hellblazer is a contemporary horror comic book series published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics. Its central character is the streetwise magician John Constantine. It has been published continuously since January 1988. It is Vertigo's longest running title, the only remaining publication from the imprint's launch.

In other media


The first adaptation of Hellblazer ever filmed for the screen is one of the scenes in the documentary feature film The Mindscape of Alan Moore and was shot in early 2002. The dramatization consists of the John Constantine character wandering through London and in the film ending experiencing a mystical epiphany of sorts.

In 2005 Constantine was released, a feature film that did not use the same title as the comic book, although the protagonists were of the same name (though Constantine was pronounced differently), and the main plot was loosely based on the Dangerous Habits story arc (Hellblazer #41 - 46).

DC comics announced a sequel to the 2005 Constantine movie was in the works, with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura linked to the project. He stated: "I'd love to do it...We want to do a hard, R-rated version of it. We're going to scale back the size of the movie to try and persuade the studio to go ahead and make a tough version of it."
