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.

4.0 Wonderfully Offensive!
I originally read Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher about 15 years ago. It was of one of the original printings of the first trade collection and I realise now that I was too young to understand it.

5.0 Preacher (Volume 1) by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon
This graphic novel volume, (containing issues 1-12), was ultra-violent, irreverent, extremely funny and fascinating. I can't wait to read the next one!! My highest recommendation to fans of horror and graphic novels!

5.0 Preacher: Book 1
Okay. Everyone scoot on over, because I'm hopping on the Preacher bandwagon and never looking back. Seriously, why did I wait so long to read this? I've never seen a story that more perfectly spotlights religious disillusionment, in my life. This was a wild, and enjoyable romp. The jokes, the dogma,...

5.0 Who's my favorite fictional preacher?
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...

4.5 The Preacher,vol 1 by Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis
I may be a little late jumping on the Preacher bandwagon but thankfully I'm on it and this is yet another one I should have read a long, long time ago. Jesse Custer is our faithless priest who gets possessed by Genesis, the powerful offspring of a forbidden relationship between Angel and Demon. So...
