HellBlazer #121 : Up The Down Staircase (Part One)
Writer : Paul Jenkins
Artist : Warren Pleece
After witnessing the horrific death of his girlfriend, a friend of Johns puts a gun to his head and plays a little Russian Roulette. Meanwhile, Constantine agrees to accompany Dani on a trip
back to America for Thanksgiving as Rich and his band proceed to drive the hapless mage around the bend.
As John and Dani wonder through the airport after an unusual flight to the states (highlighted by a punch up between two passengers started by an
arguement over OJ Simpsons innocence or lack there of), Constantine catches sight of a strange shadowy individual. John and Dani both
notice a change in America since their last visit and Constantine bemoans the fact that all his old American friends are either dead or have buggered off.
As the pair catch a train to Dani's parents, John spots a familiar figure waving to him from the platform - The First Of The Fallen.
Following an evening spent in the company of Dani's large family (including Uncle Fred, Cousin Terrell and Dani's three brothers), John seeks some much needed sleep only to be woken by a particularly disturbing nightmare.
Retreating outside the house for a smoke, John hears his name being taken in vain on the television. Rushing inside, Constantine finds the First Of The Fallen
and the apparently possesed Uncle Fred.
