HellBlazer #119 : Undertow
Writer : Paul Jenkins
Artist : Sean Phillips
John Constantine has a very bad day. Starting with a
painful accident in the bathroom, followed by a near self inflicted amputation,
leading into the discovery that Dani's fish - which were left in his care by the woman
herself - had died. As if all that wasn't bad enough, John has an
encounter with some dog excrement and a particularly sarky pet shop owner before having his
day turned upside down.
Making his way home with Dani's replacement fish, John appears to become a focal point for
the 'generic disaster' - be it a sinking boat or a collapsing mineshaft. Constantine
finds his spiritual form aboard a plane, the passengers on which are all (dead) victims of previous disaster,
Conjob is forced to watch helplessly as the plane plunges to it's inevitable destruction. As
John returns to his physical body, he drops the unfortunate replacement fish - causing them to suffer the
same fate as their predecessors.
