    Book Description:

    Written by Mat Johnson Art by Tony Akins & Dan Green Cover by Ronald Wimberly The King of Voodoo has a long history, but where did it all begin? The answer can be found in HELLBLAZER: PAPA MIDNITE, collecting the acclaimed 5-issue Vertigo miniseries that follows the story of the curse that made Midnite immortal, from its origin in 1712 through the failed slave rebellion of 1741 and into the present day, where he continues to pay the price for his original sin.

    "I grew up reading comics'the first thing I ever read on my own was a reprint of Hulk #1 (minus cover, ghetto style). In college, I started reading Sandman and from there got hooked on Vertigo Books. When an opportunity arose to write for Vertigo, I jumped at it. I pitched and idea based around my Great Negro Plot research, and Karen Berger went for it, asking that I use Papa Midnite as a character, who came complete with an existing audience (and of course the movie Constantine was coming out). In general, I prefer creating my own characters and stories, but I saw a chance to take a character that was little more than primitive black stereotype (no disrespect to the great Alan Moore) and turn it into something with more depth, reality. Plus, I got to write for Hellblazer on my first dabble in the medium, how dope is that?" 'Mat Johnson
