Preacher Ancient History (Paperback)
|Four distinctive characters whose lives were forever changed by encounters with Preacher's Jesse Custer take center stage in this volume. Included: The Saint of Killers, telling the origin of this troubled, violent figure from the Old West, and The Story of You-Know-Who, in which a disaffected loser tries to escape the influence of his abusive sheriff father with tragic, yet comical, results, and more.|
A great example of incredible writing in comics7/15/2011
Probably the biggest problem with most comics is the lack of a good back story to support the main characters. Ennis and Dillon looked to change that, and succeded with flying colors. Not only does this book provide a good backing to many of the characters in the actual comics, but it also is a great standalone, a monument in an industry overburdened by flashy art and flamboyant characters. I reccomend this book to anyone who likes Preacher, and also anyone who likes a good (allbeit dark) story.
