10 Things You Need To Know About Preacher

Praise the Lord, Preacher is finally being adapted.

Preacher Photograph It€™s a miracle and a potential blessing to television, but Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon€™s incredible comic book series, Preacher, is finally getting adapted, courtesy of AMC. Regarded as one of the most offensive, violent, and vitriolic bits of reading ever put to print, it€™s also a beloved read about faith, loyalty and love until the end of the world. The story follows Texan preacher Jesse Custer, who is possessed by Genesis, a half-angel, half-demon entity. After merging with the being, and blowing up a church and its visitors in the process, he discovers that God exists and has recently left heaven following the birth of this new creature, which has the power to overthrow even the Almighty. Bestowed with this gift, Jesse travels across America searching for God to tell him to get his act together, all with the help of his hitman ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy. Naturally, with this mission to meet The Creator, there are certain characters that are keen to see that Jesse never meets his maker. Sound nuttier than a squirrel turd? Well, it is, and here are 10 reasons why AMC€™s bravest venture since Breaking Bad should be one worth watching.
