Preacher Book One
Preacher Book One | Garth Ennis
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.

Very confusing at first (I find it hard to read comic books in general), started to make sense of the plot only around the middle. Starting with the backstory of Rev. Jesse Custer, it became perversely fascinating. The story is really dark. Lots of violence and gore, bitterness and anger. God seems to be a villain. Intriguing...

I really thought this would be my kind of comic, but...

The odd Briticisms that are put into American characters‘ mouths is a minor quibble and; the gore & violence don‘t bother me; but the unrelenting ugliness of the characters inside and out just wore me out.

The artwork has the heavy pen & ink style I remember from the eighties (off the top of my head, I‘m reminded of Alan Moore‘s comics and Black Flag album covers).

So, “Preacher” has demonic possession, a vampire, lots of skeevy people, graphic depictions of violence and gore... but the thing that makes me gasp? This background!

Checking the copyright dates and I see that this was done before 9/11– so completely unintentional as far as shock value goes!

One hell of a ride, absolutely worth it to the very end. Angels, demons, heaven, hell, feminism, a deformed-from-a-failed-suicide teenage vigilante, gunslingers, global conspiracies, philosophy, ethics, cannibalism, vampires, drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll, all centered around a mission to bring God to account for his creation. And yes, I left a TON of stuff out. Hands down, my-all-time-favorite comic book series.

Faibka It‘s been on my shelf for months, looks like I need to get to it asap! 4y

You gotta be one of the good guys, son. ‘Cause there‘s way too many of the bad.

Absolutely brutal in its art and story but that‘s why it‘s so good. Cleared up some noticeable disconnects from the Preacher tv show. Can‘t wait to eventually get my hands on book two.

A wild read, for the curiosity with some of the AMC show. 😅 Worth a quarter bit more than the language I hear at pub & grill work, doing a comics trade with a friend. The story and art is really great on gorey action horror! 🌩 I managed to finish this though today's thunderstorm. I was certain the power would go out at some point, but was spared. 🙀

A co-worker friend has been looking to do a comic books exchange, to borrow. I'll try Preacher, and he's looking for classic Spider-Man comics. I have a few that can be trusted to stay in good condition. "Are any of those my comics?" My Dad asked. ? "A few might be." I told him, "You put the hole-puncher through them." ? It shows along the side.

⭐⭐⭐

I'm sorry @TricksyTails I really wanted to like this one! I'm giving this three stars just because the imagery is totally badass ☠️ I probably enjoyed this part the most, but the story and character development was just 'meh' for me. I will give an additional star for gran'ma because she is what nightmares are made of. ::shudders::

TricksyTails 🤣😂🤣 S‘okay! I completely understand how this was meh for you. This one is hit or miss for me and the reason I like it is Herr Starr whom you don‘t meet for a bit. Gran‘ma is fun and totally wackadoodles. Sorry you didn‘t enjoy it! 6y
TricksyTails Did you like Nailbiter? I‘m so behind catching up with my Litsy feed. I don‘t remember seeing if you liked it or not. 6y
laundry_piles @TricksyTails ahhh I remember you mentioning that character! Nailbiter is next, I haven't read it yet! 6y

Well. What can I say? That was a wild ride! Not for anyone with delicate sensibilities, or for 13 year old sons who keep saying: “What? What are you laughing at? Why did you make that noise? I want to read it! You let me read Deadpool and THAT was bad!” ‘That noise‘ was a gasp, and there were quite a few! And I do have SOME parenting boundaries (just so you know 😉)!

CatLass007 I love Cass! 6y

This is one of the most amazing graphic novels I have ever read. I am immediately jumping into book two! I watched the first season of the show and love it for its cinematic quality. I love the comics just as much. I would just like to consider them as two separate entities. What do you guys think?

Amidst the end of my move and work, I have to find time for myself. Watched the first season of the show and I know the comics are different so here we go!

TheLibrarian Loved the comic but wasn't a fan of the show. 7y
Kosugi I agree with @TheLibrarian - the comic is one of my all-time favourites and I couldn't get through two episodes of the show. 7y

I figured since the BF and I started watching Preacher on Hulu, I might as well jump right into the comics. There's just something about comics...😎.

P.S. I prefer Dominic Cooper as a Brit, but I'm not hating his southern accent 😋
