If you are tired of superheroes or are just trying something different than your basic novels...START HERE! Far and wide one of the most popular graphic novels in history. Smart. Funny full of black humor. Sick and grisly. Silly and touching. Garth Ennis finally perfected his trade with these characters and this storyline. If you are curious enough to read reviews on graphic novels, you won't be disappointed with this one. Start at this book and don't stop til the last page of the last one.

People've been telling me I should read Preacher, since I like Hellblazer so much, and I finally got around to picking up the first book today. I'm glad I did, because I enjoyed it thoroughly. Like Hellblazer, it's not for those with weak stomachs, but it's also wickedly funny and the three main characters are great. Basically, it concerns one Jesse Custer, a preacher in a small town in Texas who is possessed by a mysterious half-angelic, half-demonic being called Genesis. He's pulled from the smoking wreckage of his church by his ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, who've just happened by at an opportune moment. And then the fun starts, because Heaven needs to get Genesis back, pronto, so they've sent an undead killer after Jesse... Oh, and have I mentioned that sometimes Jesse holds conversations with John Wayne? It's absurd, and it's gory, and it's sometimes just a tad mean-spirited, but I couldn't help but love it.
