What People Are Saying

Joe R. Lansdale
It's kinda part western, part crime story, part horror story … this stuff is unique. It's intriguing. It touches on a base level. Makes things crawl around in the viscera … and the brain.
Kevin Smith
With his deft mixture of comtempo dialogue and arcane biblical references, Garth Ennis joins Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and John Ostrander in the pantheon of skilled and gifted authors who can pull off the supernatural with back-handed reverence and sly believability, while never forgetting to keep it mind-bendingly entertaining. Backed by Steve Dillon's singular visuals, Preacher is more fun than going to the movies.

    Amazing

    This is an amazing series, funny, stairical, and blasphemous as all H***. This is one of my all time favorite stories, the art is fantastic and there are so many twists and turns you never know what will happen next. There are so many side stories that you can't possibly get bored with it and climax will blow your mind. It is definately worth the time and money. It's like nothing I have ever read.

    A wild ride

    I bought this book.

    Preacher graphic novel #1

    You'd think it wouldn't get much weirder than a faithless Texas preacher possessed by a half-angel, half-demon. Or his friend, who happens to be a hardcore Irish vampire. And his girlfriend, Tulip? Well, let's just say she can keep up.

    I don't remember who recommended this series to me, or when, but I remember picking the first two up through the Science Fiction Book Club and to this day I look at that as one of the indicators that I'd become an adult. The series starts hard, with Tulip failing a hit and landing in Cassidy's car in a nearly-failed getaway. But readers figure out something is up right away when Cassidy takes a bullet to the head and doesn't even flinch. The pair flee until the sun rises and Cassidy has to take refuse in the back of his truck. Meanwhile Tulip borrows his vehicle to investigate an explosion in the distance. In the shattered remains of a church she finds one survivor-the man who left her, Jesse Custer.

    Freshly possessed by Genesis (the spawn of an affair between an angel and a demon, and inheritor of both race's power) Jesse discovers he now has-literally--the Word of God at his disposal, and the angels responsible for recapturing Genesis have unleashed the Saint of Killers to take him down.

    Jesse, always being one for the impossible, decides to take the fight right up to God's door and hold him responsible for all the everything in the world.

    This volume also includes the hilarious and killer side quest wherein the gang lands in New York. Cassidy runs into an old friend and some seriously bloody hijinks ensue.

    Preacher: Gone to Texas, is definitely adults only, and only gore lovers (or toleraters) at that. It's batter dipped violence deep fried in a spicy version of Christian mythology and utterly unique. And no matter how wild the ride is, if you keep reading it'll get even crazier, straight into "Who thinks of this?" territory.

    Crass Yet Entertaining

    Definitely not for the faint of heart, Preacher is like a good horror movie: You want to look away, but you can't. Underneath the bloody, foul-mouthed surface are some fascinating characters and a genuinely good tale.

    The Beginning of something.... GREAT!!

    The first volume of the outstanding series reads like a kick to the head. Explosive!! Gritty!! Sexual!! Bizarre!! Psycho!! Odd!! Rude!! Exciting!! And downright, AWESOME!! Easily one of the best I have ever read by far! Ennis creates a strange and brutally fun world and even oddier chracters you'll quickly grow to love. The other 8 volumes are just as good, if not, better. I bought the first and second volumes at different times then bought the rest all at once not long after. This series is so surprisingly addictive!! Top notch comic fun! Plenty of twists and turns w/ cliff hanger after the next. This storyline will remain in my all time top 5. Excellent from start to finish. Fans of Pulp Fiction or Snatch will dig it!
