5.0 out of 5 stars One eye and one ear down... 10 May 2004
Format:Paperback
This volume of the PREACHER saga is where the REAL fun begins for me! In the second half of this book, creators Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon intro my fave character: Herr Starr, the head enforcer of the world's most powerful covert organization! I consider him the most interesting and colorful 'heavy' ever to hit the four-color medium! His no-nonsense attitude and blunt & acerbic words as he tries to track down Reverend Custer make for some of the funniest moments in comics! His penchant for unbelievable misfortune also begins here: in this volume he loses an ear in a firefight at a high-society orgy, and involuntarily experiences the- um, joy- of the love that dare not speak its name for the first time! The loss of one's body parts & dignity doesn't get much weirder (or funnier) than this!
But, let's not forget the first half of this illustrated tome, where we get an inside look at the Rev's past, from his being raised by a ruthless and sadistic 'family' to his eventual breakout from this nighmarish clan. Then there's the capture of the Irish vampire Cassidy by Starr & his mercs, which sets up the events chronicled in the next volume of the PREACHER TPB series. Yep, it's kinda like 'The Empire Strikes Back' of comics: a really compelling and wonderful adventure that alla sudden leaves you hangin'! But, unlike 'Empire', it has lots more naughty language, gory ultraviolence, naughty bits, and substance abuse. And it's not based in outer space, or 'a long time ago'. And the main hero's a bit tougher than that teenaged blond kid from that desert planet. Come to think of it, there really aren't that many similarities 'Preacher Vol 2' and ESB, are there...?
Anyway, time for me to fall back to Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still dark as hell but getting better 3 Aug 2014
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Jesse and Tulip are caught and dragged back to Jesse’s nightmarish childhood home, Angelville, in backwoods Louisiana. Meanwhile, the mysterious Grail organisation is out to hunt down Jesse for their own sick plans of Armageddon.

The second Preacher volume is a step up from the underwhelming first one but it still feels like the young Garth Ennis is still finding his sea legs. The title story is roughly half the book but it’s really tough to get through. Jesse’s Gran’ma and her cadre of sadistic hillbillies do so many awful things that it feels like you’re reading torture porn, or watching one of those Saw movies. Good people are murdered, children are tortured, and all in name of Christianity - or at least their warped version of it.

It’s this story where I noticed a familiar formula being created - Ennis would go on to write The Punisher MAX (arguably his greatest work yet) which would play out like this in every volume: bad people do bad things for 80% of the story, then Frank shows up and does his angel of death routine for the final 20%.

That’s basically what happens in Until the End of the World (a phrase which gets overly stated by Jesse to the point of cheesiness), as Ennis takes away Jesse’s voice of God power until the last possible moment and then lets him wreak righteous vengeance. It’s difficult to read up until that point and then it’s totally compelling.

The second half sees Jesse and Tulip reunite with Cassidy in San Francisco as the trio take on The Grail, where Ennis switches gears from pure sadism to his off-colour brand of comedy (ie. tough guy characters being sodomised, etc). It’s kinda funny, I guess, but, mixed in with a lot of serious issues, it can feel a tad bitter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the last one. 2 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
After reading the first volume of Preacher I struggled to work out where all the hype came from but I have to say I found this one much better.

Firstly I enjoyed the whole book which was much longer instead of only the first half like the last one.

Secondly we get Jesse's back story which added a bit more weight for me and it was a great backstory. There's also a bit more friendship building between Jesse and Cassidy and we find out why Jesse left Tulip.

I felt the action in this one was better also and enjoyed seeing Tulip do her thing.

I have to be honest though. I still find that the storyline is progressing slowly and I've seen reviews everywhere saying that I should be reading this rather than Ennis's The Boys. I think The Boys is much more up my street. I'm going to pick Preacher up every so often and see where it goes but I couldn't read it back to back like I do with The Boys.

Better than the last one but hasn't reached five stars for me yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feast of a Graphic Novel 27 Jun 2012
By Esteban
Format:Paperback
Dark, twisted, disturbing.

Three words that are synonymous with the Preacher series. And this volume is no exception.

New characters, new locations, blistering new story arc which sores of the page.

Just have the third volume ''Proud Americans'' on order as you'll finish ''UTTOFW'' in a night.
