Hellblazer Key Comics List Part 4

Almost nearing the end to this Hellblazer key comics list series. Here's Part 4. All of these are sleepers so far, but there's no guarantee that the television show will blow up the demand for any of these key issues. Mostly speculating when dealing with the comics in Part 4.

If you missed Part 3, just click the link to check that out. If you're ready to continue, enjoy and hope this helps you out some.

John Constantine Hellblazer #42
  • First appearance of the First of the Fallen
No better antagonist for a comic character than the first ever to be banished to hell. The First was created by Garth Ennis, and John Constantine had tricked The First from gaining the souls of one of his friends. Ennis used the battle between Constantine and The First as a recurring theme throughout his run on Hellblazer, which was shown in the movie Constantine starring Keanu Reeves.

The First is not the sole ruler of hell. He shares dominion with the 2nd of the Fallen and the Third of the Fallen.

eBay - Only two unslabbed copies available so far. One is in a comic lot.

John Constantine Hellblazer #43
  • First appearance Chantinelle (Ellie)
Known as a ally of John, Ellie is a succubus, a female demon, but she is a disgraced and shunned succubus. This issue marks the first appearance of Ellie.

eBay - A few unslabbed options for this key on the mighty eBay. Still no CGC graded copies as of this writing.

mycomicshop - Only one VF copy available at the time of this writing.

John Constantine Hellblazer #46
  • First appearance of Kit Ryan
Although Kit Ryan first appeared in a photograph in Hellblazer #42, the character first appeared in person in this issue. She is one of the most notable of John Constantine's girlfriends. She tried to keep John from the occult and refused to have anything to do with it. This would ultimately lead to their break up within the series.

eBay - A bit of a selection for this issue concerning unslabbed copies. CGC graded copies yet to surface at the moment. Could change once you read this.

NewKadia - One NM+ copy here. Only one!

mycomicshop - Two unslabbed copies here. Highest is only a VF. The other is a FINE.

John Constantine Hellblazer #50
  • First appearance the King of Vampires
And, of course, there's vampires. The King of Vampires is very much like most vampires in the horror genre. He sees humans as nothing but cattle and bears a striking resemblance to the actor James Dean, except with retractable fangs. He seeks revenge on John after Constantine refused a job offer from him.

eBay - Limited selection for this comic as well on the mighty eBay. Will be pretty limited for most of these Hellblazer key issues online at the moment.

NewKadia - Four copies located. Highest is a NM+. There is a solid NM and a VF+ also for high grade copies. Last option is mid grade.

mycomicshop - VF and Fine copy here so far.

John Constantine Hellblazer #95
  • First Demon Constantine
Summoning this creature to help him escape a plot by The First of the Fallen, Constantine ended up condemning the Demon Constantine to hell rather than himself. Since then, the Demon Constantine has sought revenge on John. He temporarily killed John and sexually abused Gemma Masters, John's niece.

Not a well-known key, and it's uncertain whether or not the Demon Constantine will even appear in the t.v. show or play a recurring role.

eBay - Only about a handful of unslabbed copies so far. Some are in comic lots. All are extremely affordable.

NewKadia - Two copies here. One is a NM+ and the other a solid NM.

mycomicshop - Only one VF copy at the moment.

John Constantine Hellblazer #110
  • First appearance of Myrddin
  • Beginning to Last Man Standing storyline
Myrddin is the last of the elves on earth, and arch enemy of King Arthur. He is an extremely powerful magician and was able to destroy Arthur's court but unable to obtain the Grail. In modern times, he is a politician and rich. Myrddin is the main antagonist in the Last Man Standing storyline. This issue originally comes polybagged.

eBay - If you prefer unslabbed copies, that's all there is for this issue on the might eBay for now.

ComicConnect - One NM+ 9.6! Comes bagged and is unslabbed. Should probably email them to be sure, though.

Once again, finding places to buy these Hellblazer key comics online will be a hunt for sure at the present moment. May be easier to find these at local comic shops or comic conventions. Part 5 is ready, so click the PART 5 below to continue. If you missed Part 3, just hit that PREVIOUS link to go back and read that. See you soon!
