The Preacher saga continues as Cassidy, the Irish vampire, has been captured by the Grail, a vast secret society that has powerful influence over the world’s governments. Jesse and Tulip are off to France to mount a rescue. As Cassidy is being tortured in the Grail’s heavily secured complex by a castrated psychopath, we learn more about why Starr has been organizing a coup within the Grail’s ranks.

When Jesse confronts Starr and the Grail’s leader, he learns a great deal about the Genesis entity that escaped Heaven and bonded to him. But if going up against an international conspiracy and a dozens of heavily armed guards wasn’t enough, Jesse will also have to deal again with the Saint of Killers, the deadliest person ever seen in all of creation. Plus, God makes another appearance and continues to seem like kind of a prick.

We also get some more history of the main characters with the story of how Cassidy became a vampire and why he came to America as well as some more info about Jesse’s father.

As always with Preacher’s there’s a wide and shocking variety of profanity, graphic violence, and freaky sexual perversions, and this overseas trip also offers plenty of opportunity to offend the French, which Garth Ennis is more than happy to do. He also adds in some new elements guaranteed to piss off the Christian right.

It’s glorious!
