5.0 Preacher (Volume 1) by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon

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...

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...
