Took me a while to read this one because I've been reading the stories as they were released (i.e. interspersing reading this with the collection Proud Americans).

Ennis' love of Westerns shines through in this. The Saint of Killers backstory is a fine ghost story, rife with the sick and twisted humor one grows to love in the Preacher collections. While this story isn't as strong as the full Preacher volumes, that is more because of it being a backstory than anything else.

Does it add to Preacher? Certainly. Does it stand tall as a stand-alone? Not necessarily. It's good as a supplement to the comic, but for someone not reading Preacher I don't think it would truly draw them in to the main series.
