Method back in the series’ very first concern, Satan techniques John into thinking for numerous minutes that he had an inebriated one night stand with the devil himself, prior to chuckling his ass off and informing John that as the King of Hell he has much better requirements than that. However is John Constantine too low lease for fast snog with the Lord of Lies?

Every queer good friend group has actually: A banished angel, a talking raven, a child gargoyle, a trans sorceress, her himbo partner who enjoys her a lot he lets her gown him in mesh t-shirts, and a problem who fell in love with a monk he saw when in a dream.
This is not a problem.
Black Knight: King in Black
Black Knight: King in Black works as a one-shot sneak peek of Simon Spurrier’s Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade, and you understand I’m here for Spurrier composing a Falstaffian dream hero. Coda knocked my socks off.
