At first glance, the Reverend Jesse Custer doesn't look like anyone special -- just another small town minister slowly losing his flock and his faith. But he's about to come face-to-face with proof that God does indeed exist -- and that He's one mean son of a bitch.
In one explosive instant, Jesse's life is changed forever -- and he aims to find out why. Together with his trigger-happy ex-lover Tulip and a hard-drinking Irish vampire called Cassidy, Reverend Custer begins a journey that will lead him from the heart of Texas to the bitter soul of New York City and beyond in search of answers from the elusive deity. But those answers are going to be hard-won -- especially considering what Heaven has sent to stop them.

Gotta be Jesse Custer. I knew a little about this: a main character who was a preacher, his girlfriend Tulip and a vampire sidekick. (Who goes off his own way.) Arseface is a pretty notorious character from this, as well. And you get his background and introduction in this volume, as well...
The BasicsJesse has just recently found himself imbued with intense power that kills his entire congregation. This power is the result of being possessed by Genesis, a rogue half-demon, half-angel that is being hunted down by the Saint of Killers. With the help of Tulip (Jesse’s ex-girlfriend) and C...
Even everyone's favorite droog, wee little Alex, would be hard up to deny that when you ride alongside Preacher you're in for a bit of the good old ultraviolence. So, before I even attempt to capture just a smidgen of this caustic cataclysm, I'll tell you straight off that this is not for little eye...
