COMIC PREVIEW: Your first look at Constantine #5

July 22nd, 2013 by Marc Comments

Welcome Shazam! One of DC Comics’ greatest champions teams up with one its most devious antiheroes in CONSTANTINE #5, which picks up directly following the events of this week’s JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #22. With the DC Universe in a state of turmoil resulting from the ongoing “Trinity War,” Constantine has lured Billy Batson to a bar in the back alleys of New York City. There, he plans to steal his thunder and enlist it in his ongoing war against the Cold Flame. Can Constantine wield the power of Shazam as deftly as Billy? Will it serve a man of questionable morals as effectively as it does a boy who is pure of heart? Find out when CONSTANTINE #5, a “Trinity War” interlude written by Ray Fawkes and illustrated by Renato Guedes, hits stores on Wednesday.



Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
