Yasssssss! This is something! Here I am at the penultimate volume and finally think I know what this book has been about all along? Will Jesse find Tulip again? What will they say to one another? Where's Cassidy. In fact... who the Hell,, what the Hell, is Cassidy? Will Arseface stay at the top? Where's Starr and co. These questions and more are answered in this volume, and by now I very much care about every single solitary character. Many claim this is Ennis' best ever work, and at this stage ...more
As I’ve previously stated, I firmly believe that anyone who hasn’t already completed the entire run of Preacher should NOT be reading any reviews or summaries of these later volumes. All I can safely say is that this is an interlude before the final volume in which nothing big seems to happen, but it’s critical for setting the stage of the ending. Also, if you ever find yourself performing oral sex in an alley in exchange for heroin, you might want to take a second look at your life choices.

Guess who has gotten back together? This one's heartwarming and and heartbreaking, and the rest of the time, we get to see the dark side of Cass.

Yes, that's right, we get to know just how big a ponce that wanker really is.

My ire is stoked in equal measure to how relieved I am that Jesse and Tulip are on the mends.

As for Starr? Omg he's still one of the most absolutely pathetic super-villains I've ever read and pure comedic gold. Still.

All the dominoes are set up and ready to fall for the last

This is the penultimate collection of a series where they really should be read in order. In this one we learn about Tulip's childhood. We also see Tulip realize that Cassidy isn't the right guy for her and how she reunites with Jesse. There is also a one off where we share a small adventure of Tulip, Amy, and Jesse that has nothing to do with the main story arc.

For the most part I loved this collection. The look into Tulip's childhood was amazing. It was at the beginning of the collection and I

A lot more relevance to this one.

I finally flew through one of these. I enjoyed this volume more than some of the others. I appreciated the recap that was included in the beginning, as it has been some time between reads for me. The characters' backstories all start getting revealed- really pulling the heartstrings. Definitely connected with the characters more, while other's gained tons of empathy. Loved the feminism girl power stuff. I was shocked at the twists!

This is another Ennis book that has been dragged on too long...the last volume, Salvation, was great...this? Not so much...back to homophobia, vampires, and the Church...oh and stupid violence. I rate this as 2 stars because Tulip has a great backstory, and because Jesse is still ok. Cassidy has always been a dick, how is this a revelation??? Thanks for the horrible reading day Garth!!

This volume was okay but honestly there were just too many different things going on for it to feel like an entirely coherent narrative to me so that's the reason for the 3 star rating. I know he was trying to tie up loose ends and bring back old characters for cameos before the final volume but that's never really my favorite thing to read. It is always nice to get a bit more of Tulip's backstory though, and to a lesser extent Jesse's. It is not so nice to get more Cassidy's backstory because t ...more

So conflicted over this one. It's homophobic, anti-French, reactionary, ultra-conservative, sex-negative... gotta love all that Preacher right-wing weirdness, right? But then there's this whole backstory about Tulip that's kind of cheesy but I [heart:] Tulip so that's oh, just so MFing dandy.

Then there's a Very Special Episode of Preacher Starring Cassidy's Drug Problem And His Manipulation of Tulip, during which I realized that in creating Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and in putting toget
Here's the book where all the threads start tightening up - everything that's gone before is coming together slowly, and we get to feel some measure of resolution to face the Big Climax Of All The Things.

Tulip's origin story is beautiful, poetic and absolutely appropriate to the woman we've gotten to know.

Jesse's little cross-country driving trip is more than a little amusing, picking up some interesting characters along the way and hearing out their bizarro stories.

I cannot fathom how can the TV show bring in all the evil fun in this series, all the violence, blasphemies, with all the sex, drugs, impending armageddon and vampires in between. Preacher volume eight, the penultimate volume to this excellent series prepares everything towards the end. But except for Jesse and Tulip gearing up for their eventual encounter with god, things are not going fine with Herr Starr and Arseface (the literal dickhead and assface respectively).

I think, considering that this was the penultimate episode of a story that has so many characters and plot threads, this volume was as good as could be expected.

There is a lot of variety in this issue -- Tulip's back-story, Jesse's cross country drive, Jesse and Tulip's reunion, a bit of color on Amy, more skeletons in Cassidy's closet, further degradation of Herr Starr, and a car-thievin', horse-rustlin', adventure from Jesse, Tulip and Amy's past. The end of that particular story is one of my

One-and-a-half stars. During this volume, I concluded that the Preacher series is really just a testosterone-heavy romance. The (supposed) plot it introduced early on (Jesse's quest (view spoiler)) has been given very little attention throughout the series. Instead the series has mostly consisted of off-topic detours from that plot, all while making the actual focus Jesse and Tulip's relationship. With each new episode bringing its own form of u ...more

Things start to pay off, with Cassidy's true colors and story coming to light, Tulip and Jesse reunited, the Grail falling apart at the hands of Starr's monomaniacal pursuit of revenge against Jesse, and everything else starting to set up for the final apocalyptic volume.

For all it sounds like, it's a very human volume, with minimal supernatural business. The side characters introduced (both Amy, nicely fleshed out, and her bartender friend) are done so gently. Even Tulip's back

I know that one of Preacher's major appeals is its shock factor and gross-out humor. But, while I generally enjoy it for that reason too, I sometimes find myself wishing that Garth Ennis would give it a rest. I mean, we get your point already, Garth: America is filled with inbred, gun-toting racists. But, for page after page, he keeps ramming that point home. (I'm sure he'd love the usage of "ramming" in that last sentence.)

The problem is that, as far as social commentary goes, it's pretty blun

After six months of drug-induced sex with Cassidy, Tulip O’Haire escapes the devious vampire’s clutches and reunites with the one she truly loves, Reverend Jesse Custer. The two of them clear up their misunderstandings and their relationship becomes stronger for it. Now all that’s left is for Jesse to ask around town about how dark of a past Cassidy truly has. Meanwhile, the Grail still have plans to assassinate Jesse. Plus, a certain disfigured recording artist faces backlash for his “controver ...more

This is a review of the entire series.

Preacher follows a gang of three washed-up misfits that have all been dealt cruel hands by fate. First there’s Jesse Custer, a vulgar, foul-mouthed yet all-around upstanding and gentlemanly preacher living a dull life in a small Texas town called Annville. He wears the mantle of a preacher while exuding the aura of a gritty, spaghetti western antihero. He spends more time praying to John Wayne and channeling Clint Eastwood than he ever spends seeking guidanc

The penultimate volume. We get to see Tulip's origin, as well as more of Cassidy's origin as well. Also, our crew is reunited, but Cassidy finds himself a little unwelcome. The character of Cassidy is probably the most complex of the series, as I find myself loving him, hating him, pitying him, and more. There's also a modern day western tale of Jesse, Tulip and Amy involving horse thieves which was a great story but had some disturbing scenes, even for this series.

Great series, too bad the next

The penultimate book of this series is mostly an interlude showing some of Cassidy's past and how Tulip and Jesse met. Still brutal and often irreverent, but fun. Looking forward to the finale of this very well crafted story! ...more
Religion tends to be an easy touch point for satirists, so much so that it becomes dull rather quickly. We get it, religion has some rather silly concepts behind it, so much so that it almost makes fun of itself. With that in mind, I avoided Preacher for a while, fearing it would be another 'fuck religion' polemic disguised as a story (a la His Dark Materials), and while there are the 'fuck religion' moments layered in Preacher from time to time, Ennis never gets too lost in his message and allo ...more

Rating: * * 1/2

I think if I weren't one volume away from completing this series I would quit. Some of the things I originally loved about Preacher are the very things I can't stand now. Initially, I had mad respect for Garth Ennis for putting such shocking things onto paper. However, the highfalutin political rants divert greatly from a truly compelling story.

If you easily get queasy and you are a wuss when it comes to animal suffering, skip pages 235-237.

This book is the weakest of the bunch so far, in my opinion. It had a lot of stuff happening but none of it really stood out as great.
The beginning started with a little backstory on Tulip and Amy. Why she hates guns. I kind of liked this arc, but it almost was too cliched and too brief.
After that there is an issue with Custer on the road picking up people that was more or less pointless. Then we have some reunions which were a little too saccharine to be believed. Then Custer goes on a little

Ennis finally sets up the end game while lobbing intermittent back- and side-stories at us. It's to be a showdown at the Alamo, naturally.

This long, busy volume contains my single favorite panel of the entire run: a man who just learned that his wife died in childbirth sitting blankly in a chair in an otherwise empty white panel. In the next panel a nurse fetches him and we see that he's in a hospital outside the neonatal ward. Wonderful way to visually convey his state of mind.

I have to say my favourite bit of this volume is where we go into Tulip's backstory and how she is when she comes too after six months of drugs and booze with Cassidy - and man am I having issues with Cassidy. On one hand you have all these fun times and fun memories but on the other you're learning all this less than fun stuff over this volume and the last too. Just jeeze.

I also love how Jesse stays out of it for the most part. He lets Tulip do her thing and doesn't fight the battle for her. H

One Hell of a ride. Absolutely worth it. Angels, demons, heaven, hell, feminism, deformed-from-a-failed-suicide teenager, gunslingers, global conspiracies, cannibalism, vampires, drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll, all centered around a mission to bring God to account for his creation. And yes, I left a ton of stuff out. ...more

This volume gives background on Tulip, delves into the darker side of Cassidy's history, and allows us to catch up with Arseface and Herr Starr. It also brings Jesse back on track for his quest to find God and give him a stern talking to. Although I enjoyed it, I'm ready for the big showdown! It's been an interesting trip and I'm anxious to see how everything gets resolved for the Preacher. ...more

Probably my favourite in the series. Herr Starr is one of the best characters ever created. Kind of like the Dick Dastardly of the Grail.

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'. It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast-based comedy featuring two supporting ch ...more
