    AMC's 'Preacher'

    Best comic EVER is about to be ruined by this tool on AMC.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1316546/

    Son of a bitch. This should have been an HBO series, or on Netflix. Its dumbed down and changed already. Fuck you Hollywood.

    He's a writer, not acting in it, so it's premature to suggest he'll ruin it. If he were the lead, I'd agree with you out of the gate, because he's the worst actor in Hollywood.

    I dont mind his acting, but to trust the guy who made Green Hornet into a pile of shit, is just wrong. Have you seen the casting? Tulip is no longer a skinny blonde white girl.

    VYLA Quincannon??? No "pluck the worm smear the cheese"?

    Judging by whats listed as the cast, they have already rearranged the story and made their own characters.

    Im already disappointed.

    AMC's 'Preacher'



    Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer, a preacher in the small Texas town of Annville. Custer is accidentally possessed by the supernatural creature named Genesis in an incident which killed his entire congregation and flattened his church. Genesis, the product of the unauthorized, unnatural coupling of an angel and a demon, is an infant with no sense of individual will. However, as it is composed of both pure goodness and pure evil, it might have enough power to rival that of God Himself. In other words, Jesse Custer, bonded to Genesis, may have become the most powerful being in the universe.

    Teaser.

    First official trailer will air during The Walking Dead this Sunday.

    Mehhhhhh. I'm already somewhat pleased. They're doing a pretty shitty job of character development, but I thought it was ok.

    You would breeze through it in two weeks. It's that good. It's probably available on Kindle for pretty cheap.

    You can't have too many comics, if you dont have Preacher. LOL.

    As a huge fan boy. I agree. Shits all over the place and different, but yeah. I'm digging it.

    Going head to head with Game of Thrones wasn't all that good of an idea. Probably why it's underrated.

    Really well acted and cast. Beautifully shot, too. They do such a great job of color theory.

    It's really nowhere near the source material. For some reason I don't mind it. I'd rather they go by the book and get it over with, because it seems like they are trying to add more to an already long well told story.

    It's got its moments though where it seems like something Ennis would have put in the story. Yes others where he wouldn't.
