Preacher

Preacher Comic

By: Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon

A small-town preacher becomes possessed by the offspring of a demon and an angel, and sets off in search of the absentee Almighty to take issue with His management of the world. Garth Ennis’ bloody, twisted and sickly funny religio-Western epic is full of brutality, mutilation and the drunken ramblings of a mad Irish vampire, but it’s also – deep down – a love story that says all of creation can go hang as long as love has its chance. Huh. Despite the castrations and perversions and maulings, despite the Saint of Killers’ glowering menace, Ennis might just be a big softie after all.

21 RE: James Herberts The City
L: lukeyboy Love the fact you've got Superman: Red Son and Preacher in there, but I have to agree with the previous posters about the omission of The Boys, Transmetropolitan and Hellblazer. Perhaps the former is a more aquired taste but Transmetropolitan and Hellblazer are genre defining comics and deserve to be on the list. As do (IMO) 'The Books of Magic' and timates'. ]   agree on b] took a age old concept and brought it kicking amd screaming into relevancy and ramped up the characterisation from the original Marvel vision of each of them.

Props for putting invincible in there, but Walking Dead is not that good.   Also, no 2000ad/Judge Dredd?  What about America? It's abit strange that you picked Red Son as the one Superman story. More

I know that people are always going to bitch and lists cannot be to everyones approval or tastes, but anybody with a half a serious interest in comics would have put 'The Invisibles' in that list. More

How about Cerebus? Yummy Fur? Alan Moore's Miracleman? The Grandaddy of comics Will Eisner? Love & Rockets? Jimmy Corrigan? Hellblazer?  Hate? Flaming Carrot? Stray Toasters? Frank Millar's Daredevil or Elecktra? Jam? Concrete? Too many teenagers in tights on this list for my liking. More

No Invisibles?  Animal Man?  Doom Patrol?  All Star Superman?  Looks like you guys aren't Grant Morrison fans... tut tut!  More

27 RE:
A good list, though I do hope had it been 32 you would have put Transmetropolitan and The Boys in there. C'mon, one has Spider Jerusalem literally shove a Blair/Bush hybrid  up his arse and the other has Simon Freakin' Pegg beating up superheroes! WHY ARE THEY NOT HERE! More

28 RE: How about...
The fact that no one has mentioned "Lucifer" yet is simply a tragedy. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and moving comics I have ever read. Beats the hell out of "Sandman" if you ask me... Other than that, I cannot help but agree with the other comments about glaring omissions. Only two Alan Moor books? You must be joking. More
