This is an absolute knockout from DC’s kids line, by Ryan North and Derek Charm – the team behind much of Marvel’s The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. Maybe John Constantine doesn’t seem the most natural children’s book protagonist, but the cocky and temperamental ‘Kid’ Constantine is a genius translation of the classic character. Thinking of himself as the only magic user, Kid’s world is blown up when he enlists in a Salem boarding school (possibly to escape a horde of ghosts he himself releases on the British isles). Here, Kid must face the usual barrage of school, friends, magic, demons – and of course, the meanest teacher. This book is chock full of humour and great visual gags, plus there are plenty of fun guest appearances from other staple characters (Etrigan the demon is particularly delightful). A great way to get your kids hooked on the Dark side of the DC universe – and a real gem for fans of Constantine’s more adult appearances.
