Warning – SPOILERS for Preacher Season 1 Episode 2 “See…

Two weeks ago, Preacher debuted on AMC and introduced the TV audience to Jesse Custer, a Texas Preacher who is trying to carve out of new life and leave a violent one buried in the past. This proves hard for Jesse (Dominic Cooper), as he and mysterious new friend; a vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) beat up an entire bar full of hooligans, including abusive father Donnie (Derek Wilson), who ends up with a graphically broken arm. While Jesse’s past, particularly his ex-girlfriend and partner Tulip (Ruth Negga), are trying to bring him back to the dark side, a strange otherworldly force has inhabited him. This same force has been turning men of god (and Satan) inside out and outside in, all over the world, and seemingly has a home now in Jesse Custer. This force is so powerful, that when Jesse told an annoying congregant to “open his heart” to his mother, the man flew to Florida and ripped his heart out of his chest in the old folks home! Right on cue, two strange men stalking the mysterious force show up in Annville likely to cause trouble.

Spoilers below.

Full disclosure warning…

I know nothing of the Preacher comics, story arcs, or characters. Thanks to some helpful direction from friends on Facebook, to origin story videos on YouTube, I now have a loose idea of what to expect. Preacher is a series from DC’s/Vertigo comics, written and created by Garth Ennis back in the mid 90s. There were several attempts made to get the comic put to film as early as 1998 with Kevin Smith attached as a producer. After almost 15 years bouncing around studios, then off to HBO, the series was finally greenlit by AMC thanks to the efforts of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also co-wrote and directed the pilot. If you’re looking for a detailed analysis of all the similarities and differences between the comic and the series, I can’t help you. But I will say when it comes to other comic book interpretations, some of my favorite MCU films were based on comic characters I knew little to nothing about, such as Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. Uncle Ben told Peter Parker, “with great power comes great responsibility.” I’m telling you, “with no comic knowledge comes no irrational disappointment.” So onward we go…

The GoD List

Each and every week, I, “Ant-Man!” Henchman 21 and “The Wasp!” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible”¦ theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of July 23, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

There are weeks when I get excited about scores of books that are being released. And then there are other weeks. This is one of those other weeks, as we get a whole batch of very good comics; Secret Wars is still rolling, DC continues to roll out new books in their most recent relaunch, IDW, Dark Horse, Image and the others pump out a fine line of books. So, we’re just going with a shorter list this week, including a long running series ending in a spectacular fashion, a book from last week that I didn’t get a chance to talk about, and a book you probably never thought you would see. Let’s get The GoD List started!
