John Constantine, Hellblazer: Scab – Peter Milligan

The amoral, black magician Constantine's new relationship is strained when his body is covered in a magical rash. No, there is no message of practicing safe sex here, although it might have made for a better story. Instead, the situation revolves around a union organizer who sells out and is likewise infected. Milligan attempts to tell a story sympathetic to the working man's plight and how a corrupt government might behave. I never felt the story really got going and it becomes yet another of Milligan's tales that didn't thrill me, which is starting to heavily outweigh the ones that have.
