Even the most casual John Constantine fan has probably heard of his disastrous, tragic attempt to exorcise a demon from a child in Newcastle, early in his career. But how exactly did it all go down? Jamie Delano reveals all for the first time in this classic, old-school tale of occult horror.

Warning for child abuse and gore.

"'My Blue Heaven' [...] marked [a] major change in the series [...] It is, in its way, one of [Moore's] most personal issues, in that it is arguably autobiographical in many ways and also anticipates Alan's future embrace of magick and shamanism. The story begins as an ethereal and loving celebration of a creator (Swamp Thing/Alan) finding solace and temporary fulfillment in the act of creation/re-creation. The darkness -- the loneliness, the masturbatory nature of such creation, the assertion of the shadowy realms of the creator's unconsciousness -- soon unveils the madness [...] that is necessarily entwined with the drive to create [...] This embracing of science fiction was the result not only of Alan's own feeling of 'I've done it all' with horror but also his sensitivity to Rick's own interests and ideas."
--Stephen Bissette, trade paperback introduction, 1988/2011

"The trouble with America is it has a very Manichean attitude [...] and I suppose that's what I want to address at the end of 'American Gothic.' It's this attitude that there's good and evil, black and white. And there isn't. That's what 'American Gothic' is about."
-- Alan Moore, in conversation with Neil Gaiman, c. 1985
