Winter's Edge #2
Writer : Garth Ennis
Artist : Glyn Dillon
A quiet story revolving around Constantine reminiscing on both his own childhood and
the childhood's of those who've called him friend. Enjoying a quiet pint in
his local, John's peace is disturbed when a small family bustle into the near empty pub,
looking to make use of the bathroom facilities. The barman steadfastly refuses to
allow them in and the sight of the children sets John to thinking.
Well on the road to drunken oblivion, Constantine recalls growing up alongside Gaz Lester and how
he was eventually responsible for his friends death. He imagines how the rest of his dead friends
must have been like as children - Emma as the strong woman too big for her hick town, Header
a young thug, Rick the ladies man and Nige the school twat.
Guilt hits John as once more he faces the fact that nearly everyone who dares to love him ends up
dead. Unwilling to grapple with uncomfortable feelings, John opts to get rat arsed instead.
