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 the first book don't stop til the last page of the last one.

After the events of War in the Sun, Jesse Custer needs to take some time out to lick his wounds and try to remember just what exactly happened and why his fall from an airplane apparently didn't kill him. He drifts into the town of Salvation, Texas, and in short order finds himself made sheriff and standing off against Odin Quincannon, the local meat baron who runs the town. Great stuff -- as always, this is by turns ludicrous, hilarious, and heartwrenching.
