John Constantine (/ˈkɒnstəntaɪn/) is an anecdotal superhero showing up in American comic books distributed by DC Comics and its elective engraving Vertigo. The character initially showed up in The Saga of Swamp Thing #37 (June 1985), and was made by Alan Moore, Rick Veitch, Steve Bissette, John Totleben, Jamie Delano and John Ridgway. He fills in as the lead character of the comic books Hellblazer (1988–2013), Constantine (2013–2015), Constantine: The Hellblazer (2015–2016), and The Hellblazer (2016–2018).
The main Hellblazer, Constantine is an industrial warlock, mysterious criminologist and cheat positioned in London. He is known for his perpetual pessimism, vacant snarking, merciless shrewd and steady chain smoking, but at the same time he’s an enthusiastic philanthropic driven by a sincere want to benefit some in his life. Initially a supporting character who assumed an essential job in the “American Gothic” Swamp Thing storyline, Constantine got his very own comic in 1988. The artist Sting was visual motivation for the character.
A real to life film was discharged in 2005, in which an Americanized rendition of the character is played by entertainer Keanu Reeves. Welsh on-screen character Matt Ryan was cast in the job of Constantine for the 2014 NBC TV arrangement, a job he repeated on The CW arrangement Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, the enlivened film Justice League Dark, and again in the Constantine: City of Demons arrangement on CW Seed.
The Hellblazer arrangement was the longest-running and best title of DC’s Vertigo engrave. Realm positioned Constantine third in their 50 Greatest Comic Characters of All Time, while IGN positioned him No. 29 in their Top 100 Comic Book Heroes, and the character positioned No. 10 in Wizard’s Top 200 Comic Book Characters of All Time.
