Here's how DC describes the issue:
"John Constantine has survived his share of horrifying events: a bout with cancer, four-headed soccer hooligans, a stint in a maximum security prison, and more trips to Hell than he probably cares to recall. In this month's gala Hellblazer #200, he'll face a threat even he could never envision: married life. Series writer Mike Carey is joined by a trio of past, present and future Hellblazer artists - Steve Dillon, Marcelo Frusin, and Leonardo Manco - for this 40-page tale that finds Constantine living a day of wedded 'bliss.' In three separate-yet-connected tales, Constantine finds himself united in unholy matrimony to three women from his past, but, as the story unfolds, he soon realizes that a much more sinister force is behind what could be the worst day of his life. "
Hellblazer #200 will be 48 pages and will cost $4.50.
