Magnificent Read
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.

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