Based on the Vertigo comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher could become your new favourite show.
That’s if you buy into its deadpan humour, gonzo gore, and madcap alternate universe where angels, an Irish vampire, and a conflicted priest with a godlike power coexist in a small town in Texas. Dominic Cooper is terrific as the titular hero, Jesse Custer, whose voice commands more than respect, but it’s Ruth Negga as his fiery ex, Tulip, who manages to steal a majority of the episodes. Moreover, the series actually looks like a comic book, with scenes skillfully composed to resemble an illustrated panel, sans voice balloons. Wild, unpredictable and sometimes impenetrable, Preacher will instantly appeal to fans of Ash vs. Evil Dead and True Blood, and is worthy of high praise.
