PREACHER by Declan Shalvey


Well, this was my pick so I had better damn well post.

Preacher is absolutely one of my favourite books. I would gladly recommend it to non-comic reading friends. Hell; even my mum loves Preacher.

This series opened me up to non-superhero comics. Made me appreciate westerns. Showed me that a scene with two friends talking could be far more powerful than any action sequence. It also showed me that a guy from Ireland could make it in mainstream comics. So; here's to you Preacher, for ruining my life forever!

I got to agree: this piece is stunning. I echo the sentiment that Preacher opened me up to non-superhero comics. It is also my litmus test for if I'm going to get along with a girl.
