Added DiffLines:

* OnlyGoodPeopleMayPass: The "All His Engines" story has John exploit this by summoning a bunch of demons inside a church (so they can't pass the door). Cue an Aztec death god, who is older than Christian rituals and thus could not care less about them, plowing through the wall and devouring them all.

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: Gods in the ''Hellblazer'' mythos often times disappear when not worshipped. Others, such as Nergal, became demons in order to survive.

* GuileHero: Constantine. He far more often wins through wits, trickery and luck than brawn. His magic isn't particularly powerful, either.



* {{Hell}}: Hell in the series aren't often the fire and brimstone of myth. It constantly shifts and shapes to accomodate to different kinds of sinners. So everyone has his/her own Hell. If you think you'll like Hell because you like fire, well guess what, Hell isn't that generous to make sure you WILL NOT LIKE IT.

* AlternateContinuity: The John Constantine who's now showing up in the DCU in ''Justice League Dark'' is apparently the young thirty-something who first helped Swamp Thing come to terms with his identity, rather than the one in Vertigo's ''Hellblazer'' who's possibly pushing 60. The New52 book continuity also has a number of differences with the classic. In the traditonal Hellblazer, John cast roughly less than one spell per book, and those were typically low-level scrying or hypnotism. He used wits and deals instead of wands. New52 Constantine has some of the same characteristics, but while he still doesn't blast toe to toe in wizard duels, there are a lot more glowing lines and magic tricks spurting around.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtificialAfterlife: A late arc has a corrupt politician arrange to create one for himself (called a soul cage) filled with unwilling {{Sex Slave}}s and other perversions, preventing his soul from reaching its richly-deserved place in Hell. Instead, he gets trapped inside forever, along with the sadistic mage he contacted to build it for him, who was trapped in the cage by Constantine and is ''not'' happy about it.

A long-running Creator/VertigoComics horror title that spun off from ''Comicbook/SwampThing'' in 1988, ''Hellblazer'' followed ConMan, OccultDetective, gambler and magician of ill repute, John Constantine (rhymes with "turpentine"), as he tangled with Hell, Heaven, the police and the criminal underworld. The comic typically combined horror and fantasy elements (demons, ghosts, vampires. etc.) with a gritty 'real world' setting and an occasional dash of political and social commentary. The majority of the series was set in modern urban Britain, particularly [[LondonTown London]]. Virtually every British comic writer of repute has written for Constantine, such as Jamie Delano, Creator/GarthEnnis, Creator/WarrenEllis, Creator/NeilGaiman, Brian Azzarello, Denise Mina, Paul Jenkins, Andy Diggle, Ian Rankin and Peter Milligan among others.

* MemoryJar: A particularly horrible example: John encounters a sweet, grandmotherly old woman who [[spoiler: sends her son to kill prostitutes and hack off chunks of their flesh with a razor which she then keeps floating in jars. She can then relive the victim's happiest memories, which John compares to a drug high.]]
