Overdue Episode 180: Preacher (Gone to Texas and Until the End of the World)

June 6, 2016

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

What if God walked away from it all? And left behind a Gomorrah-like stew of sex and bloodshed out of which emerged a superpowered preacher, seeking revenge on the almighty? That’s the set up for Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s graphic novel Preacher.

This week, Craig tackles the first two volumes of the series and explains what’s preventing him from pressing onward in the story. We also touch on how best to subvert the comic code, American Movie Classic, and how far is far too far when depicting taboo behavior.
