Crime Writer Ian Rankin To Pen ‘Constantine’ Comic

160x120_comics_john_constantineBest-selling crime writer Ian Rankin is to make his comic book debut by penning a story featuring supernatural detective John Constantine, it has been reported.

The Scottish author’s new graphic novel Dark Entries sees the anti-hero investigate a series of mysterious attacks on a group of reality television show contestants.

Fellow writer Brian K. Vaughn, author of Y: The Last Man, described the book as “a very clever, very modern new take on the old haunted house story”.

Constantine was originally introduced by Alan Moore during his run on Swamp Thing. The character was later given his own DC series titled Hellblaizer and appeared on the big screen, portrayed by Keanu Reeves.

Rankin, best-known for his Inspector Rebus detective novels, was awarded an OBE in 2002 for his services to literature.

Dark Entries will be released by Titan Books on October 2
