Everyone loves comic book trivia, but with 75 years of superhero comics behind us right now, there’s always some new obscure fact to learn. That’s why ComicsAlliance is going deep into the minutiae of your favorite characters in our continuing video series. You think you know comics? Well, here’s a few things you might not know!

Boy howdy, how about that Preacher trailer, huh? It sure makes me want to learn a series of twelve things about the cult classic comic written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Steve Dillon, and published by DC's Vertigo imprint. I hope someone lays out for me the dates of its publication, the inspiration for it, the major players in the series, and what kind of merchandise I can currently buy of it before Hot Topic puts out an Arseface body pillow!

Show notes:

  • Guys, I am going to be real: Preacher is a series that you can read the entirety of in a single sitting. If you have read the whole series and even, like, one Wizard article about it from back in the day, you are not going to learn anything in this video. Go watch the Tales from the Crypt video instead and absolutely do not comment that you already knew everything in this video.
  • However, if you are, in fact, the intended audience for this video, i.e., someone who just saw the trailer for the TV series and said, "Hey, this looks interesting," you should buy the first volume here. You'll be buying the rest soon enough.
  • Speaking of, did you watch that trailer yet? It's here.
