drunken Irish vampire The opposition is provided by Jessie s less than lovely family, a Vatican hit squad, and also heaven and hell.Jessie proves to be a rather unusual preacher, a hard drinking and dangerous man with a violent past He has questions for God and is unsure what to do with his newfound power The whole thing is off beat and addictive.The art is well done and supports the story When I finished I immediately wanted the next one It s a series with gallons of potential My experience reading on is that it goes gradually downhill but even by book 6 it s still a fun read.I ve recently watched seasons 1 3 of the TV series based on the graphic novels It s not a close match but retains the key elements and is good Give it a watch Season 4 is imminent Join my 3 emails a year newsletter prizes Preacher has so much graphic violence that the makers of the Saw movies can t read it without projectile vomiting Preacher has such profane language that Chris Rock would cover his ears if he heard it Preacher has acts of sexual perversions so disgusting that Larry Flynt once said he would have never taken his case to the Supreme Court if he knew that this was the kind of stuff that would get published.But damn, is it a great story.Jesse Custer, a reluctant redneck minister in a tiny Texas town Preacher has so much graphic violence that the makers of the Saw movies can t read it

tiny Texas town gets endowed with the Word of God after bonding to an entity that escaped Heaven Then he hooks up with Tulip, his gun toting ex girlfriend, and Cassidy, a 90 something year old Irish vampire who likes whiskey as much as he likes blood The three join forces on a quest to find God and kick his ass for his neglect of humanity as they fight an international religious conspiracy and the toughest supernatural killer ever seen in all of creation It s not Richie Rich, that s for sure.It s really easy to get caught up in the shocking stuff that happens in Preacher This is a comic series where a character casually states,Curiosity won t just kill the cat It ll bite it s head off and stump fuck the remains til the sun comes upAnd that s mild compared to some of the other stuff that gets said and done Frankly, there are images in the panels of Preacher that I ve sometimes wished I could get out of my head.But look past the shock value, and you ll find a comic classic with almost limitless ambition and wildly original story to tell At times, Preacher reads like Irish born Garth Ennis s love letter to America It s also his exploration of the legends of the American West, the nature of religion, the depravity of people, and the limits of friendship and love Despite the gore, the sex, the language, and the violence, this is a series with a strong sense of morality Jesse and his friends are outraged and disgusted by the depths people will sink too, and the quest to find God is a carry over from that Jesse is angry with what he learns about the nature of God, and sees him as a vain hypocrite who created people and then just lets them suffer while expecting them to praise his name and not lifting a finger to help And to Jesse s cowboy nature, that s an insult that deserves a reckoning.Joe R Lansdale says it best in his introduction in this volumeI m not sure it s a learning experience, but it s a thinking experience, but most important it s unique, and I hope it s uniqueness does not encourage a hundred writers to go out and try to repeat it What they will come up with is just meanness for meanness sake It won t have the edge, the special feel of PREACHER They ll just be imitations Because there is only one Garth Ennis, and only one Steve Dillon, and only one PREACHER, a tale out of Ireland, dragged through Texas with a bloody hard on, wrapped in barbed wire and rose thorns And it s out to get you This book is something else Violence, sex, booze and craziness Sign me up I read that Seth Rogan is trying to make either a show or movie from this
