AMC’s ‘Preacher’ Renewed For Expanded Season 2

Preacher Season 2 Renewed 13 Episodes
AMC

If the unilateral praise for AMC’s Preacher weren’t enough to guarantee a second season, certainly its wealth of talent and AMC’s bare-bones slate would guarantee it a spot, right? Either way, consider Preacher Jesse Custer officially booked to spread the word of God for Season 2, and this time with a longer mass.

Preacher Ma’am: How Does ‘Until the End of the World’ Hold Up Today?

PreacherMaam-GTT

As someone who thought she was a dude in the late 1990s, Preacher was the comic I looked forward to every month more than any other. As someone who knows she isn’t a dude in the mid-2010s, I’m looking back on this series and examining what still works, what doesn’t work, and what its lasting legacy is.

If Gone to Texas was the fizzle, Until the End of the World is the bang. The second collection, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, with colors by Matt Hollingsworth, letters by Clem Robbins, and covers by Glenn Fabry, includes issues #8 through #17, and it's where Preacher truly takes off for me, all because of the lead-in story, which gives the collection its title.

Brexit-Featured

The polls are closed and it's official, the United Kingdom has decided --- by a narrow margin --- that it wants to leave the European Union. I mean, who could blame them?

Cast Party: Who Should Star In A Rebooted ‘Hellblazer’ TV Show? [Pride Week]

PrideWeek-Hellblazer

Welcome to Cast Party, the feature that imagines a world with even more live action comic book adaptations than we currently have, and comes up with arguably the best casting suggestions you’re ever going to find for the movies and shows we wish could exist.

In the second of our guest editions for Pride Week, Tara Marie wants to see a fresh take on a TV adaptation of Hellblazer, completely divorced from the cancelled 2014 Constantine TV show. This version would take its lead not just from the recently wrapped Constantine: The Hellblazer comic series by James Tynion IV, Ming Doyle, Riley Rossmo, and Ivan Plascencia, but from the Vertigo Hellblazer years and related series like Swamp Thing and Sandman.

If You Love ‘Blue Is The Warmest Color’, Try These Comics Next [Pride Week]

Featured

The 2013 queer coming of age movie Blue Is The Warmest Color, directed by Abdellatif Kechiche and starring Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux, has been acclaimed as one of the most emotionally complex and compelling movies of recent years. A beautiful story about two women's love for each other, and their eventual heartbreak, it's based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh.

The movie is available to watch on Hulu and Netflix, so if you've seen it once, there's a chance you've seen it two or three or four times. If you're thirsty for more sorrow, love, or troubled adolescent relationships, here are some creator-owned or independent comics that you can check out next.

Everafter #1. Art by Tula Lotay.

The conclusion of Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham's Fables in July of last year after a 150-issue run left Vertigo without one of the last of its long-running tentpole books --- so in the spirit of Sandman and 100 Bullets before it, it's no surprise that Vertigo wants to tap back in to the world of one of its most successful series. A new Fables spinoff will launch this September with the title Everafter: From The Pages of Fables.
