Featuring new ongoing series artist Leonardo Manco! When a trio of thieves makes the mistake of stealing a rare and cursed magical artifact from John Constantine's lock-up, they soon learn the hard way that they've nicked from the wrong bloke.
The issue begins with three bumbling thieves who under their boss are sent to steal valuable artifacts from an old warehouse, unbeknown to them these artifacts are actually in the possession of John Constantine, they sell them to their violent boss who nearly pushes one's eyes out, for about two thousand dollars, Regardless of the fact they were suppose to get five.
So the three bumbling fools head off to their place and shoot up their drugs, little do they know what they've gotten themselves into. "Paxo", One of the three thieves winds up having a terrible dream involving multiple skeletons clawing at his skin. The next day, he talks to his girlfriend, explaining he has stolen a ring from a warehouse. She tells him if it' bothers him so much that she'll take it. He gives it to her and then go's off to the bathroom, hours later, he doesn't come out....His girl friend realizes he's left and runs to his best friend "Mick", the two talk and make love as her boyfriend "Paxo' has supposedly left her with no money, afterward she gets in the shower and the walls begin to shrink. Supposedly just a bad trip, she ignores it and carries on.
Mick finds out about the bracelet that Paxo left with her and immediately go's to look for her. He finds her locked in a closet with skeletons clawing at her nude body.
Mick shoots up some drugs and heads off trying to deal with what he's just seen.
We next see Constantine talking about the bloke's to a large fat business man about what's probably happened to the thieves so far with them in possession of the mystic stone and bracelet.
The issue ends with Mick sinking through the floor and Constantine frankly not giving a damn what happens to those thieves.
