Garth Ennis has been writing comics for twenty years, initially for British titles like 2000 AD and Crisis, then for various American publishers. As well as PREACHER, his credits include HELLBLAZER, HITMAN, WAR STORY, ADVENTURES IN THE RIFLE BRIGADE, KEV, BATTLER BRITTON, The Boys, Battlefields, Dan Dare, 303, The Chronicles of Wormwood, Crossed, Streets of Glory, Dicks, The Punisher, Fury and The Pro. Originally hailing from Belfast, Northern Ireland, he now resides in New York City with his wife, Ruth.

Steve Dillon began his professional comics career at the age of 16 with a story in Marvel UK’s Hulk Weekly, and he hasn’t stopped working since. After helping to fill the pages of 2000 AD and Warrior throughout the 1980s, he joined with fellow artist Brett Ewins in 1988 to launch Deadline, a monthly explosion of comics genius that ran for seven years.
In 1992 Dillon was tapped to illustrate a run on HELLBLAZER written by Garth Ennis, and three years later the two creators unleashed PREACHER on an unsuspecting world. Since then Dillon has contributed work to such titles as The Punisher, Supreme Power: Nighthawk, Bullseye: Greatest Hits and Wolverine: Origins. Eschewing international celebrity, he lives a quiet life with his family in Luton.

Preacher Book One 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.

The book kept me entrenched in it the whole way through. I was very excited to see a hard cover version of this glorious book. Back in the mid to late 90's, Preacher was my first experience with Garth Ennis and I have tried to follow him ever since. Preacher was the first graphic novel that I read that was actually graphic. It was the kind of violence, language, and sexuality that I only ever saw in movies. It was as I saw it, "Finally a comic for an older demographic!" If I had to find something wrong with the writing, I would say the characters that were supposed to be Deep South characters used a bit too much European English slang. Even this I did not mind all that much, it just stood out is all.

Deep, dark, disturbing, and brilliant. A wild ride from start to finish.

I heard about the show. The first volume was weird but kind of interesting.

Funny, violent, disturbing and dramatic (sometimes all at once) Preacher is one of the greatest comics ever made
