The artist of this wonderful painting is David Mack, best known for his long-running series Kabuki, which started in 1994 with the long-since defunct Caliber Press and has most recently been published by Marvel's Icon imprint. David also did Swamp Thing covers for Vertigo back in the early 2000s.
Anyway, I hope you like this painting as much as I do and hopefully, your local comic shop will stock the variant cover edition of #3 (on sale August 24) so you can take home your own copy. It's just a shame that they have to spoil the cover with annoying details like, for example, the title.
And now, on to some of the reviews for Issue #2. It's in stores now, or order it here.
9 out of 10 stars. "Vankin is doing one hell of a job of reintroducing both Swamp Thing and John Constantine into the DCU. I’ve always loved Swamp Thing and was worried about how this reintroduction was going to play out. I couldn’t be happier!"
"Vankin's handling of Constantine suits the character and his interaction with universe icons like Batman and Superman make this series worth the price of admission....witty exchanges between Constantine and Superman never fail to entertain. "
BY ODIN'S BEARD
"This title brings me what I want, John Constantine interacting with both Batman and Superman over the course of two issues and I couldn’t find it more satisfying. …Takeaway here is that if you enjoy Constantine you should be reading this mini."
"Loving this book!" 4 of 5 Nerdskulls. (Go to 4:50 in the video.
Thanks again to everyone who read, reviewed or otherwise supported this book in any way! Stick around for the conclusion which in addition to David Mack's brilliant variant cover, brings us the final confrontation between John Constantine and the forces who would control the Green for their own less-than-benevolent purposes!
