The search is over. The trail is cold. A crown must be conferred. A great reception is held for the envoys and ambassadors of the outer realms-but who greets them from the throne of tales? And somewhere, out in the world, the man who tore down the King of Dreams looks upon his work… and feels nothing.

Hellblazer Enters the Sandman Universe this October

DC is beginning to reveal details about year two of their line of Sandman Universe comics. That includes the introduction of John Constantine!

It begins October 30 with The Sandman Universe Presents Hellblazer #1 from Simon Spurrier and Marcio Takara. That will be followed on November 27 with John Constantine, Hellblazer from Spurrier and Aaron Campbell.

In The Sandman Presents Hellblazer #1, the story begins in a moment originally seen in Gaiman’s miniseries The Books of Magic. John Constantine finds himself haggard, bloody, and dying in an epic magical war—a battle that will soon consume the world. As he lies there, the vision of a young Tim Hunter stands above him, the naive youth seeing firsthand what his destiny holds. Horrified, Hunter flees back into the past, and Constantine is left behind to die.

Now, years later, Constantine reemerges, physically un-aged but with all of his memories intact—and yet the world has passed him by. Constantine must now fathom a new world torn apart by the same old political and social woes, while attempting to discover how he returned after all this time. But most troubling of all are the rumors of a new young magician named Tim Hunter, a boy destined to be either the greatest sorcerer of all, or the greatest threat to the world. If history is repeating itself, then is it John’s role to die all over again? Or is John here to stop the cycle—and stop Tim Hunter?

Check out below for the cover of the one-shot from Bilquis Evely and John Paul Leon‘s cover for John Constantine, Hellblazer #1.

But a blight has come to the Worlds’ End pub, and as the search for Dream of the Endless nears its end, our plucky hunters must confront the saddest thing of all: a fable that can’t stop fading. Meanwhile, the new Lord of the Dreaming, chafing against its unwanted throne, gropes for answers-and endings…

Simon Spurrier (Sandman Universe, Godshaper) and Matías Bergara (Cannibal, Supergirl) present a broken fantasy world that’s perfect for fans of Mad Max and The Lord of the Rings.  

In the aftermath of an apocalypse which wiped out nearly all magic from a once-wondrous fantasy world, a former bard named Hum (a man of few words, so nicknamed because his standard reply is “hm”) seeks a way to save the soul of his wife with nothing but a foul-tempered mutant unicorn and his wits to protect him…but is unwillingly drawn into a brutal power struggle which will decide forever who rules the weird wasteland.

Collects issues #1-4.
