I picked Preacher up because a friend recommended it to me. About the first hundred pages I wondered just what the hell I was reading, and as the story goes on it gets stranger and stranger. As the story gets stranger it keeps getting better. Preacher is pretty different than any comic I've read. Reverend Jesse Custer is searching for God. Along the way awesome-weird-bad things start happen. Being a graduate of Bible college I've met religious cooks and nuts. This book's take on religion leaves me one part disturbed and one part giddy. This is not for the faint of heart or easily offended. Garth Ennis includes a lot of shock factor in this story. In my opinion that's a major factor in the story being so damn good. It's not all shock factor though. It's well told. It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a group of characters so much. I highly recommend Preacher. If for no other reason than there is no better dialogue written in comics. Even Kevin Smith said so. That has to make it true.
