CM Podcast 121 – Preacher Season 2

The AMC Preacher show just ended last Monday so this is a good time as any to talk about the 2nd season.

I love these Glenn Fabry recreations of his famous covers.

The 2nd season started strong with the Saint of Killers hot on the trail of Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy as they embark on their crusade to find God.

Did the season end as strong as it started?  How close to the comic is season 2?  Is it worth watching the 2nd season at all?

Well, all these questions and more will be answered in the podcast.  We also make future prediction on what to expect to see in Season 3.  The podcast is full of spoilers so don’t listen to it if you are still getting caught up on Season 2.

See you next week.

CM Podcast 25 – Preacher comic

preacher 1

Cover to Preacher #1

Jon and I talk about Preacher this week.  We have all seen the trailer on AMC and are very excited for the show.  Now let’s go back in time to 1995 – Where people were watching Seinfeld and Friends on TV and the little heroes of Toy Story were making a big splash for a small company called Pixar on the big screen.

In 1995, writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillion premiered the comic Preacher through DC’s Vertigo imprint.  Not many people knew what to expect from this comic but they soon grew to love Preacher Jessie Custer, Assassin Tulip and vampire Cassidy.  It was a strange and funny ride that lasted 66 issues.

Jon and I read Preacher when it came out in 1995 all the way to it’s ultimate end in 2000.  We review our impressions prior to the comic’s release and then what our thoughts are of the characters and situations that arise in the story line (mostly spoiler free) and our hopes for the coming  show.

We also make a few movie recommendations to watch prior to watching the show.  Start listening now.

Your comics pal,
