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.
