Merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan Preacher Jesse Custer becomes completely disillusioned with the beliefs that he had dedicated his entire life to. Now possessing the power of "the word," an ability to make people do whatever he utters, Custer begins a violent and riotous journey across the country. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, the Preacher loses faith in both man and God as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.

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

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.

Garth and Steve
I read the Garth Ennis version of the Punisher and loved it. This hasn't disappointed me either. I love the art, and haven't been able to put the story down.
