This hardcover volume collects issues 41-54. The first seven of these chapters have Jesse taking up residence and becoming sheriff of a small town called Salvation. He takes over from a yes-man that was in the pay of Odin Quincannon, aka The Meatman, a local businessman who owns the meat packing plant on the edge of town. He’s employed a rough bunch of guys from the city on the proviso they get the run of the town with no consequences for their bad behaviour. Unfortunately for The Meatman, Jesse doesn’t entirely agree with that state of affairs and their first encounter leaves Mr. Quincannon in no doubt of where he now stands. Trouble is bound to ensue.

After this is all over, a new story arc commences with Jesse resolving to continue his quest to confront God with a quick stop-off to find out how his dad won the medal of honour. This is followed by two two-part stories. Firstly there’s an origin story for Tulip and then the reunion and reconciliation of her and Jesse.

Pretty much a brand new cast of remarkable characters for us to meet in this irreverent, definitely adult-oriented comic book series. Sex, violence, love and hate all go hand-in-hand (sometimes all at the same time) and anyone with even a modicum of Puritanism should think twice before picking this up. I continue to love it though and think it’s a shame I only have one more volume to read. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"In the beginning, the Reverend Jesse Custer was just another small-town minister slowly diluting his faith with regular applications of whiskey. But then came Genesis - a rampaging spirit that merged with Jesse's soul and tore both his life and his congregation apart. Now Jesse has a new mission: to track down an absent God and make Him answer for his deeds. But the Lord of Hosts is elusive, and his allies on Earth are determined to harness the power of Genesis to further their own twisted ends. In the aftermath of an apocalyptic confrontation in Arizona's Monument Valley, the Reverend Custer has returned from the brink of death to find that his world has been shattered... but Salvation is still within reach."--Dust jacket flap.… (more)
