Don’t delve further into the dark arts if you want to stay spoiler free. But you know you’re going to. You’ve been warned.
Introducing Papa Midnite
He’s been there since the beginning. Literally. The voodoo master Papa Midnite made his first appearance in Hellblazer #1. He’s been a thorn in John Constantine’s life ever since. The sorcerer has used the dark arts to create a vast criminal empire that serves his needs… and his whims. He has crossed paths with John many times, but not always as an enemy. Like all the best characters, he’s got many sides to him. And sometimes that side is standing right next to Constantine to take down an even bigger threat. We’ll see what the future holds, but for now, we’re just happy to see one of the really big Bid Bads take the step from the comic to the screen.
He’s so cool he’s even headlined his own book! Check out Hellblazer: Papa Midnitefor some chilling midnight reading.
A no-hit wonder
John Constantine. Master of the Dark Arts and petty dabbler in… punk rock? Hey, being young and in England, what else would you expect from John Constantine? His punk attitude comes with street cred—along with his friend Les, John founded the punk band Mucous Membrane (The band’s roadie? Chas, of course!). Their single, “Venus on the Hardshell,” was even released by S’Not Records.
If you check out Hellblazer #11, you’ll see how, John’s quest for rock ’n’ roll glory leads the band to a club in Newcastle. Where they meet a haunted girl named Astra. Whom John attempts to save through magic. Which brings us back to the #DCTV Secrets of Episode 1.
It’s a story so tragic, it ought to be a song.
