5.0 out of 5 stars The best comic series I have ever read, 17 May 2003
This review is from: Preacher: Gone to Texas (Paperback)
It's weird. Back when I used to read classic Brit sci-fi comic '2000AD', my favourite story with my favourite art was 'Slaine', drawn by the amazing Glenn Fabry, and quite possibly my most hated story with my most hated art was 'Rogue Trooper', drawn by some guy called Steve Dillon.
Fast forward to the present, and I'm stunned, amazed and delighted by 'Preacher', which I've only just discovered. It has the most fantastic, hilarious and sharp writing by Garth Ennis, totally mind-bending covers by Glenn Fabry...and...what's this? Superb art by Steve Dillon! Yes, he has improved so much since those old 2000AD days, and I now love his work. All three of these talents come together perfectly to create what is, without a doubt, the best comic series I've ever read.
Although the central story of Preacher is something about demon/angel posession and a vendetta against God, most of the series' time is spent on a multitude of subplots and happy meanderings through insanity, perversion and numerous moments of ultra-violence as three of the most damn likeable lead characters you'll ever meet, wander around America encountering all kinds of weirdos and freaks, each with a twisted tale to tell. Every line that Ennis writes is as sharp as an eye-gouging needle and every frame that Dillon draws is...you know...just really freaking great.
I don't really need to say anything else, except, if you have any interest at all in graphic novels and haven't yet read Preacher, do yourself a favour and pick up this first instalment now. It doesn't matter if the idea of the story doesn't really catch your attention (It didn't really appeal to me when I first heard about it) - Just trust me. You'll have a blast.
