Happy Labor Day from the JLA and Mike Judge!

Much as I enjoyed Mike Judge's live-action theatrical debut, Office Space, when I saw an advance screening of the movie lo those many years ago, I thought it would have been even funnier if it had been animated. Maybe that's an

preacher_deadoralive

Remember the reports earlier this year that Preacher was headed to HBO, courtesy of writer/director Mark Steven Johnson and under the watchful eye of creators/producers Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon?

Well, if, like me, you've been wondering about the status of the show and were concerned over the fact that no mention was made of Preacher in a recent HBO press release announcing upcoming series which are currently in production, you may be pleased to hear that more information has come to light.
