Damn near perfect.

All the threads come together, snarl, and then make something gloriously beautiful even though it looks the the end of a horrible, horrible mess. And you know what? I actually kinda expected the dog to actually be god. But No. Spoiler time: the dog is just a dog. :)

All through this comic, I knew it was always about these three, or five if you include the redoubtable Starr and the merciful Saint, but how it all came back to the first three, the story's core, is just so goddamne
Where else would Jesse Custer’s quest end but at the Alamo?

As for the how it happens, I think the book says it best:

“Isn’t it funny when you think your story’s going one way, and it turns out it was going another way all along?”

First and foremost, Preacher did not end as I expected it to be. It has less violence and blood than the previous concluding arcs. The final setpiece is rather subdued and "quiet", save for a couple of explosions and gunshots. Though it is not the end I have expected, Garth Ennis has ended it in the best way Preacher could have possibly ended. And surprisingly, the ending has a heart and full of hope. Thus in a few words, I try to summarize what I felt about the ending, and please pardon my lang ...more
Until a few months ago, I had never heard of this series or its author (I know, is unforgivable). I read the first for curiosity and then, I am going forward, devouring one book after another, following the adventures of Tulip, Jesse, Cassidy and all other major and minor characters who appear in these books.

Ennis is in no hurry to conclude, carries the various stories, unfolds them with precision and concludes some (such as Arseface and Lorie). The result is a stunning final, with a double conf

God damn, for some reason I've been wanting to read this book for YEARS, but never got around to it until now.

Preacher was one of the gateway comics - got me back into comics after 12 years away from that rather expensive and addicting habit. I couldn't believe after so long away, just how *adult* and hilariously vile and updated my love had become.

And Mr. Ennis (and Ellis, in that most ridiculous and hilarious Transmetropolitan) were such masters of the profane, how could I possibly refuse th

After reading the previous eight volumes, I was committed to this series in a big way. So for Alamo to have an ending worthy of the series' overall quality was, in a word, a relief. There is little I can say without spoiling the ending, except that every major character has their moment in the sun, and a satisfying resolution to their story. ...more

The final end of one the best adult graphic novels now TV series. I always thought that it would not be able to be done on TV its ok but the GN are best .
You never get full depth of the art work in show .This 2nd read of this series never tier of re-reading book if it is good & been able to go from 1-9 in few weeks with odd other book in-between is much better too.

The Flooze
Following Jesse Custer through nine volumes of Preacher has been an exercise in hilarity and despair. And a hell of a lotta gore. It had its ups and downs in terms of pacing, but I can forgive the lackluster moments when I consider how captivating Garth Ennis’ characters are. From the first volume, I was hooked. Jesse’s determination, Tulip’s loyalty, Cassidy’s devil-may-care attitude, Starr‘s fanaticism, the Saint‘s focused hatred--it’s the personalities involved that make Preacher the entertai ...more

The question above the screen where you put in your review says: "What did you think?" Well, what can I say? It's the last volume in this great otherworldly, in every sense of the word, story.

I have a couple of moments in this volume that stand out for me: Agent Hoover finally gets himself to curse, Jesse and Cassidy get into one last barfight, Jesse remembering his father's wise advice when he says goodbye to the Duke.

The second half of the story is just... You know the story is coming to an en

I absolutely hated to see this series end. And while I'm sure there would have been some money in bringing the series back, Garth Ennis has stuck to his guns and left things as they were meant to be.

We get to see the final outcomes for all of the cast: Jesse, Tulip, Cassady, Arseface, Herr Starr, the Saint of Killers, even God. (view spoiler)

So, I've read the whole "Preacher" series over the last few months.

The Pros:
-Steve Dillon's artwork, especially the facial expressions he draws. He is able to convey far more emotion than virtually any superhero-style comic artist, and his character actually look like humans. He doesn't really do anything interesting with form--he's not an experimental comic artist--but he does what he does very well.

-The relationships between the characters, and especially how they change over time.

-The anti-re

The Preacher series are the most brilliant comics ever written. If fact, it's some of the best fiction ever written, irrespective of the format. All nine books are masterpieces. It is a little hard to review this book for the common reader. All I can really say is if you haven't read the rest of this series than you should not be starting with this one. Go back and get Gone To Texas first. Then read through the rest of it and come back for Alamo. For those of you who have read the whole series s ...more

The grand finale. Jesse and Cassidy face off in front of the Alamo while Starr runs his endgame.

I still have a few complaints. The Grail just isn't the all-powerful organization it's supposed to be. Preacher continues to suffer from Cassidy's being rewritten as a useless backstabbing asshole. Tulip's interpretation of "I don't want you to fight the lethal shadow organization" as "you're a silly girl who can't take care of herself" is a blatant strawman and Jesse should be calling her on it.

That ending was just perfect. Honestly.

A disappointing ending to a good series.
Before I thought it was weird that I had no recollection of how this series ended but now I don't think it's weird at all because I obviously just blocked the whole thing out since it's so entirely anti-climactic. I guess this is probably a good series if you're into all the American dream cowboy bullshit Jesse is always spewing but I personally signed up because I thought we were gonna FIGHT GOD, and while I guess that technically DOES happen it's like such a side note / afterthought that I'm j ...more
I was going to review the whole series in this final volume of Preacher, but in the end this is a story that can resonate with different people in different ways. The praise for the writing is just deserved, but I would like to pay tribute to the artwork of Steve Dillon. His death last October, leaves a big hole in the comics world, and this series wouldn't have been nearly as memorable without the sublime simplicity of his art. RIP Steve. ...more

Preacher, Vol. 9: Alamo is a disappointing, anti-climatic end to the series. The Saint of Killers couldn't even save the show and that's saying a lot. I equate this journey with Preacher to having a major case of blue balls. It got me excited at times, but never quite got me there.

While I enjoyed the extremes to which this series dared to go, I don't think I would ever read this again. It wasn't consistently interesting enough for me to commit the time to it ag

And everyone lived happily ever after.

Review of Volume 1 through 9:

The entire series is pretty damn chauvinistic and gory to the point of being silly. I suppose if the series didn't have much shock value, the story wouldn't have lasted this long. The villains are downright pathetic, even God, and the main character tried to be so "manly" that it straight up reminded me of Maddox at times.

It doesn't have a great overall story, but it's one of those books where you enjoy the journey more than the

I am glad I am done with this. I read it because I am working on the pilot, and wanted to be familiar with the characters and story. My final reaction is, "Meh." I found it expository (Jesse always talking out loud to himself being the classic irritating voiceover, or Cassidy spilling his beans to someone in a bar). And, while the general outline of the story is an interesting idea - God leaves heaven, Jesse Custer (J.C.) is inhabited by a superpower baby (who is the incarnation of good and evil ...more

Garth Ennis. Thank you. Steve Dillon RIP... thank you for your legacy. A series about God, fundamentalist Christianity, conspiracies, toxic masculinity, Texas, the South, unrequited love, disability, love, betrayal, addiction... or simply a story about the weakness of men, and their fragile egos? A masterwork of multi faceted story telling mixed with a huge swab of dark humour. A Five Star series overall. This volume gets those stars for the record, despite a technical 9.5 out of 12.

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
