Synopsis from publisher:
A second collection celebrating the release of the Warner Bros. Pictures film Constantine, in theaters in February! CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER COLLECTION collects the official 64-page VERTIGO adaptation of the film along with three classic issues of JOHN CONSTANTINE: HELLBLAZER. Included are issue #1, which kicked off VERTIGO’s longest-running series and set the tone for the character; #27, which brought SANDMAN creator Neil Gaiman and his longtime artistic collaborator Dave McKean to the title with a haunting story of fear and loneliness; and #41, which opens the “Dangerous Habits” storyline with Constantine discovering that he has lung cancer in “The Beginning of the End.”

Notes:
This collection of the Hellblazer comic book series is an anthology in style, similar to its companion John Constantine: Hellblazer – Rare Cuts. It reprints various issues from the first three years of the series, as well as the official comic book adaptation of the feature film Constantine, based off of the Hellblazer comic book series. Constantine: The Official Movie Adaptation was originally released in 2005 in advance of both this publication and the feature film it adapted. Writer Steven T. Seagle adapted the screenplay by Kevin Brodbin and Frank Cappello for the comic book form. Artists Ron Randall and Jimmy Palmiotti provided the visual adaptation. Hellblazer #1 was originally published in 1988 and was created by writer Jamie Delano and artist John Ridgway. (The original publisher’s synopsis mistakenly referred to this content as issue #11.) Issue #27, from 1990, was written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Dave McKean. 1991’s issue #41 was created by writer Garth Ennis and artists Will Simpson and Mark Pennington. The cover is a photo image of the movie poster depicting actor Keanu Reeves as John Constantine.
