Oh look, It’s Sting… who eventually becomes John Constantine. Although his first appearance is credited as Swamp Thing 37, the Swampy creative team had planned and worked on pages more than a year in advance. Stephen Bissette and John Totleben had been telling Alan Moore that hey are drawing a character who resembled Sting. Moore would eventually use the character as John Constantine.

for those who think this is Constantine’s first appearance, Bissette cleared the air recently:
