AMC is adapting Preacher
The network is teaming with This Is the End duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and Breaking Bad’s Sam Catlin to adapt Vertigo’s Preacher, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. ’
Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s comic series from DC Comics imprint Vertigo, Preacher revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer, a badass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes the only one who is able to track God down and hold him responsible for his abdication. Tulip O’Hare, Jesse’s beer-guzzling vampire ex-girlfriend, accompanies him on his quest for answers. But the story doesn’t end there: The Saint of Killers, an immortal killing machine and Western lone gunman type, is hot on their trail with his sights set on Jesse. (via)
This has potential to be amazing.
Preacher by Garth Ennis & Steve Dillon
If you loved the sharp wit, humour and heart of the 9-volume Preacher series, try these equally excellent multi-volume reads:
Transmetropolitan by Warren Ellis & Darick Robertson for a 10 volume satirical cyberpunk tale filled with sex, drugs and violence
100 Bullets by Brian Azzarello & Eduardo Risso for a US-spanning 10 volume crime saga with brains
Y: The Last Man by Brian K. Vaughn & Pia Guerra for a bizarre, often hilarious journey across a dystopic US, in 10 volumes
The Sandman by Neil Gaiman & Various for an epic, 10 volume existential fantasy that fuses horror, comedy and classical mythology
These are great recs!
