"Gone to Texas" collects the first seven issues of Garth Ennis' excellent Preacher series. The story begins with the reverend Jesse Custer, his estranged girlfriend Tulip and a mysterious Irishman named Cassidy sitting together and talking in an anonymous American diner. Jesse is on a quest to find God and take Him to task for abandoning His creation, while Tulip is on the run from a past she refuses to discuss. Cassidy seems to be just along for the ride, but he has his own dark secrets. Ennis's writing is sharp, clever and harshly, caustically, hilariously cutting in it's commentary. Steve Dillon's art is top notch, the characters are strong and active, the visual punchlines are hilarious while the gross-out moments are truly gross. This is definitely intended for mature audiences. Highly recommended for all fans of graphic novels and awesome things.
