Volume One:
Gone to Texas
by Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, & Glenn Fabry
Introduction by Joe R. Lansdale
Paperback: 200 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 1563892618
$14.95
Reverend Jesse Custer has a mission: to find God, who has disappeared from heaven. Armed with a peculiar moral code and a voice that must be obeyed. Custer joins up with his gun toting former girlfriend and a hard drinking Irish vampire to take on an indestructible gunfighter called the Saint of Killers and bring down a grisly serial killer. The result is a wildly horrific thriler in the vein of PULP FICTION.
Here's a book guaranteed to offend a bunch of people, not only because of its profuse profanity and graphic violence, but because it's the epitome of iconoclasm. Like a brutal accident, you can't watch but you can't turn away. The story follows an ex-preacher man, Jesse, who has become disgusted with God's abandoning of His responsibilities. So Jesse starts off into the wilds of Texas with his hitman girlfriend and new best friend (a vampire) to find God so that he can give Him a piece of his mind. Despite its superficial perversity, this book contains what may be the most moral character in mainstream comics. A cult hit in the making. Fans of Quentin Tarantino take note.

Volume Two:
Until the End of the World
by Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, & Matt Hollingsworth
Foreword by Kevin Smith
Paperback: 256 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 1563893126
$14.95
The Reverend Jesse Custer continues on his outrageous mission in the second PREACHER collection. First Jesse heads south for a brutal confrontatino with the deoms from his past--a trio of white trash psychos, including Jesse's monstrous grandmother. The Jesse and company go west, only to crash a party of Babylonian proportions.
In and of itself, the story of a man with one foot in Heaven and one foot in Hell is hardly original. But in the hands of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the story of Jesse Custer becomes a blasphemous masterpiece seething with originality. Custer is a former Texas minister who was joined with a spiritual being called "Genesis." Now Custer is on a journey to find God, but not in the traditional enlightenment sense. I mean track Him down and give Him a piece of his mind. Along for the journey are his gun-friendly girlfriend and his Irish punk vampire buddy. Until the End of the World starts with a flashback to Jesse's childhood, when he watched his father get shot in the head. That kicks off "All in the Family," the first of two stories in this collection. The second story, "Hunters," features the character Jesus de Sade. Yes, even if you've known for years how hip and cool comics are, you won't believe you're reading something this outrageous. And as Kevin Smith points out in his introduction, this is one book "that actually surpasses its hype."

Volume Three:
Proud Americans
by Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon, & Matt Hollingsworth
Introduction by Penn Jillette
Paperback: 240 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 1563893274
$14.95
The Reverend Jesse Custer is a Texas minister who swears worse than a sailor and is not above killing people who get in his way. One might say he's lost his faith. No, he's just looking for God, and when he finds Him... Proud Americans is another sick and fun addition to the Preacher series.
This book contains three story lines: One, a short tale about Custer's father in Vietnam. Two, a recounting of the transformation of Custer's Irish buddy Cassidy into a vampire and his coming to America. And three, the conclusion to the story begun in Preacher: Until the End of the World, the story of the angelic mafia (known as the Grail) who have come after Reverend Custer and the secret power inside him called "Genesis."

Volume Four:
Ancient History
by Garth Ennis, Steve Pugh, Carlos Ezquerra, & Richard Case
Paperback: 224 pages
DC Comics
ISBN: 156389405X
$14.95
While technically the fourth book in the Preacher series, Ancient History isn't part of the main Preacher story line and doesn't even use any of the main characters (Reverend Jesse Custer, his girlfriend, Tulip, and his vampire buddy Cassidy). Instead, this collection of side stories delves into the freakish, perverse, and downright mythic supporting characters. The main feature is the 106-page demonic Western featuring the "Saint of Killers.
" In many ways this guy--and the spirit of the ruthless frontier he represents--is the soul of the Preacher series. Writer Garth Ennis said, taking all of the characters of the series into account, "I felt one more character was needed to round out the cast: someone who would directly represent the Old West, who had walked straight out of history, and who brought with him the horror and terror of those times." If this is the soul of the book, then its heart is the "Story of You Know Who," a reference to the character Arseface, whose self-imposed shotgun wound to the face has left him rather disfigured. This boy's abusive family is so overblown, his tragedy so all-encompassing, that a lesser writer would let this swerve into complete silliness. Ennis's talent is to pull pathos out of such outrageousness. He succeeds here again.
