Hellblazer #262

Written by Peter Milligan
Art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Stefano Landini

Milligan's 'Constantine in India' storyline continues to please, as John faces off against a demon from colonial times, meets up with an old mage in a loincloth, and scares his white guru friend. Milligan has managed to introduce a number of new characters over the last couple of issues, my favourite being the two Indian cops that tail John, thinking that the serial killer they were denying the existence of last issue, might be advantageously white.

I feel like Milligan's put himself on very familiar ground, and he's able to use that as a definite strength in this story. As always, Camuncoli and Landini are turning in good, solid work as well.
