HellBlazer #110    HellBlazer #110 : A Different Kind Of Tension (Last Man Standing : Part One)

   Writer : Paul Jenkins
   Artist : Sean Phillips

Drake's drum is beating again, signaling that Britain is in great peril.   Myrddin also known as Merlin has returned to modern day England and with the unwitting help of a greedy government is slowly killing the land as he searches for something Arthur (as in the one who pulled the sword from the stone) hid from him centuries before.   Arthur himself is in hiding and his court huddle together terrified atop the tower of London.    All of this pales into insignificance in the face of Johns blossoming relationship with Dani (that's a polite way of saying they're now sleeping together) and Rich's announcement that Slarky's pregnant.   John gets the biggest shock of his life when he's asked to be the childs God father - his old insecurities rise to the surface and John is on the verge of refusing when Dani accepts on his behalf.   As John has nightmares of a Dragon guarding a box, Arthurs court seek leadership from an unlikely source...

Constantine wakes to find Sandda of Arthurs court in his room, not amused John demands an explanation.   Sandda tells a sceptical John of Myrddins return and asks that Constantine leads them against him.   John considers his life as it stands, his relationship with Dani and his commitment to Rich and Slarky before telling Sandda to sling his hook.

Quote Of The Month : 'I Don't fuckin Care about God's Will' - John Constantine to a hooded figure in a particularly bad dream.
