Preacher Ma’am: How Does ‘Salvation’ Hold Up Today?

PreacherMaam-Salvation

In this installment, Preacher faces controversy, and not for the usual reasons – but rather, because everyone argues over whether this arc truly serves the story. Salvation, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, with colors by Pamela Rambo and letters by Clem Robbins, is often considered the runt of the Preacher litter of trade paperbacks. Is it a misstep for the series, a needed divergence, or something else entirely?

NECA Spreads the Gospel of AMC’s Preacher With New Figure Series

NECA
NECA

It's been something like 15 or 16 years since the last time there were new Preacher action figures available. To be fair, Preacher action figures were a bit of a hard sell back at the turn of the century, and with the comic ending around the same time, any hope of more Preacher figures ended shortly after. That is, until this year when AMC started airing its television adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic.

Now, thanks to NECA, the cast of Preacher is back in in figure form for the first time in over a decade. And they're kicking things off with the main man and his toucan vamp, Jesse Custer and Cassidy.

Preacher Ma’am: How Does ‘War in the Sun’ Hold Up Today?

PreacherMaam-WarInTheSun

In War In The Sun, written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Steve Dillon and Peter Snejbjerg, everything changes forever. It's a promise that means nothing in most comics, but when Preacher says it, it follows all the way through. While Preacher is a lot like a superhero comic, it has one key difference: things change, and change greatly, and stay changed.

Preacher Ma’am: How Does ‘Dixie Fried’ Hold Up Today?

PreacherMaam-DixieFried

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.

In Dixie Fried the cast starts to settle into a routine, and one of the greatest strengths of the series comes to the fore, even as characters turn out to be not what they seem and the series’ perspective on religion turns out to be more nuanced than expected. Dixie Fried was written by Garth Ennis, drawn by Steve Dillon, and features colors by Matt Hollingsworth, Pamela Rambo, and James Sinclair, letters by Clem Robbins, and was edited by Axel Alonso.

Preacher Ma’am: How Does ‘Ancient History’ Hold Up Today?

PreacherMaam-AncientHistory

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.

This week, it's a break from the regular series as writer Garth Ennis and editor Julie Rottenberg assemble a series of one-shots set in the Preacher expanded universe. What will different artistic styles bring to the table, and what can the tone of each one --- from frivolous to a serious as a tombstone --- tell us about how well fiction ages?

‘Preacher’ Initially Considered James Franco as Jesse Custer

Preacher James Franco Jesse Custer
AMC / Hulu

Preacher had languished in development hell long enough for every actor to end up fancast in the title role at one point or another, but James Franco might seem a stretch, no matter how much range he shows in a given year. The attachment of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to AMC’s Preacher changed that, but how close did Franco get to the role Dominic Cooper inevitably won?
