Comic Review: Preacher Volume 1 Gone To Texas
I love a comic that is really f’d up and weird, but at the same time has a story that is deep, very complex and highly interesting. Preacher just happens to be such a comic. Who else but Garth Ennis (The Boys, Punisher:MAX) and Steve Dillon (Hellblazer, Judge Dredd) and where else but Vertigo of course!
Reverend Jesse Custer was a priest living in a small town full of hypocritical church goers. One Sunday during a heated sermon he was struck with the spirit of some heavenly being. Now filled with the power of this spirit he has one mission. Find god and make him pay for all the hell the people of this world have been put through.
This book has so much going for it. A sprawling story through the entirety of its run that goes to so many interesting locations. Main characters with so many flaws you find yourself yelling at the pages “why are you doing that”. With an array of supporting characters, you want to know everything about their lives. So many crazy things that you keep wondering how it’s possible to get weirder–but it does.
