Like the bulk of the readers of Preacher I enjoyed Jody and was looking forward to a special involving him and T.C. Unfortunately, my expectations weren't all that well met.

The stereotypical "cop on the edge" and "super-model turned lawyer with a dangerous secret" characters were amusing, but a bit overdone. Furthermore, I felt the violence in this issue was a bit too contrived. In the main books it all seems to serve a purpose, or at least be good fun - in this one, I just wasn't feeling it.

Ennis turns the tables and makes Jody and T.C. the heroes of a dumb 80's/90's action movie kind of thing. Funny.

Ennis began his comic-writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls. Appearing in the short-lived but critically-acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish 'Troubles'.
