Preacher - It rocks all the remaining taboos in our society. This book is sick, and should be banned immediately. The very notion of the Grail, lead by the grotesque AllFarther D'Aronique, inbreeding the descendants of Christ for two millenia, and the horrendous depiction of the new messiah are heresy and blasphemy of the highest order. If ever there was a good argument for the burning of books, this piece of depraved filth is it. I loved every page of it. Comics don't get any better than Preacher, and Preacher don't get any better than this. More Please - 5 stars isn't enough. All that and I didn't mention Frankie the Eunoch - it's characters like him that Ennis does best. Pure genius from cover to cover.

Format: Paperback
This book (volume 3, which collects #18-26) picks up the tale right where the last issue in "Untill the end of the World" left us, with Jesse going on his way to rescue Cassidy from the Grail. Before the actual rescue operation begins we first get a little intermission-window-tale (#18) where Jesse meets a man at the airport who tells him a story about the time when he used to know Jesse's father in Vietnam. Not really an important factor for the rest of the story, but plenty entertaining. After that (#19-24) the search for Cassidy is on and you get to read a tale that makes the intentions of both the Grail as Starr a lot clearer (which was indeed a little neccesary). Starr however is expecting Jesse and waiting to ambush him, and the Saint of Killers is also on his trail again. Starr himself isn't having an easy time either since the allfather of the Grail comes checking up on him, a sign he thinks that they suspect something about his little scheme. With that we get to meet "the greatest treasure of the Grail" (who isn't exactly how you expect him to, to say the least) and Jesse meets a creature who learns him more about the Genesis entity. This is really a very good part of the story and, I dare say, the most important part of the TPB for those who are following the main story. Off course it's also filled with humorous little sub-plots you would never have thought of yourself in a million years, like we're growing used to from Ennis it seems. Finally the last part of the book (#25,26) handles the origin of Cassidy. It shows how and when exactly Cassidy became what he is now, how he learned to live with it, and how come he's in America now (being an Irish bloke).Read more ›

I have been quite enjoying the series so far (in volumes 1 & 2) but this one dragged a little and the level of American Jingoism reached a nauseating crescendo; the final page made me want to vomit.

This is definitely the weakest of the three so far. I haven't read any further having been rather put off the series a number of years ago when I first collected them.

"Preacher" Volume 3 is definitely the best of the first four or so volumes of the series. After the somewhat disappointing "Until The End of The World," this collection brings the quality back to the top in style.

The plot follows on from the end of Volume 2 with Cassidy in need of rescue from Jesse and Tulip. This collection brings the organisation known as the "Grail" to light and we have more than one big revelation during the course of this book.

The artwork is even better than before. Steve Dillon's style seems to get stronger as time goes on. It's amazing to believe that they were able to release a comic of this quality every month when it was first out, and the 9 issues collected in "Proud Americans" are among the best.

We're treated to some wonderful back story of many of the secondary characters, including the Saint of Killers and Genesis itself. The most unusual part of the book is Cassidy's retelling of the Irish War of Independance and Easter 1916 Rising, which, while quite far removed from the story itself, fits wonderfully well with the atmosphere of what has gone before.

As usual, we're given plenty to laugh about and more than a fair share of the trademark "Preacher" violence, with more absurd characters doing their thing and crazy situation after messed-up moment galore.

If you liked the first two parts, this will make you love "Preacher" even more. It's a huge step forward from the 2nd collection and even surpases the first part. It's Ennis at his writing peak and Dillon as wonderful as ever. The perfect installment of a truly amazing series.
