Garth Ennis’ savage epic Preacher exemplifies why some comics are only for the grown-ups!
Preacher focuses on narrative storytelling with an unapologetic handling of religious and supernatural themes. Preacher’s full-on, with dark and frequently violent humour, plus a wide range of allusions to popular culture outside of comic books.
After merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan preacher Jesse Custer has become completely disillusioned with the beliefs to which he had dedicated his entire life. 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.
