This volume of Preacher involves: Jesse Custer being handcuffed to a bed and left alone as punishment, the Vengeance of Arseface, Voodoo Priests, a curse on Cassidy, and some rather emo kids who wish to become vampires. What else do you expect of Preacher?

Three stars for this installment as it felt a bit rushed. There is a distinct feeling of a build-up to something great, but whatever it is, it hasn't happened yet. I'm excited for it, and very interested in where they're taking Cassidy's character. The philosophical question of God is also quite interesting, even if Bill Hicks was the comparison there used.

I'm not giving up on Preacher, I'm just a wee bit annoyed at how this volume seemed to reflect more Ennis'opinion than that of Custer and friends. ( )

Believe it or not, this was the most bizarre Preacher yet. The storytelling was exceptional, as usual, but the comedic elements were turned up to eleven!

In the beginning, Cassidy meets up with another vampire, something he thought would never happen. The douchebaggery oozing out of the fellow bloodsucker was off the charts. Cassidy has a hard time even believing that someone could act this way but understands where he's coming from when the only basis for vampire activity comes from the movies.

The story continues much along the same bath that Ennis has already worn down. Jessie is still on the search for God and is continuously trying to look within himself to find answers behind his possession by Genesis. He even goes so far to enlist the help of a practicing voodoo.. artist? What's the word you use there? You get the idea.

A pretty major revelation come to life in this volume that occurs between Cassidy and Tulip that will threaten the bond the 3 main characters share moving forward. I initially wasn't super fond of it because I wasn't quite sure of it's point. However, I still have a sizable journey to the end so I'm holding off judgement for now.

5 books in and this series is showing no signs of slowing down. They've already accomplished so much in the first 5 that I can't help but hope they haven't peaked early or will start showing signs of slowing down.

On to book 6! ( )

This volume starts with a one-shot about Cassidy in New Orleans, dealing with some wannabe vampires and one real one, which leads naturally into the rest of the volume when, years later, he returns to the Big Easy with Jesse and Tulip. In this volume, Cassidy puts the moves on Tulip, but is it the drink talking or has Cassidy had a hidden agenda this whole time? Add voodoo, Arseface, and Starr planning his revenge against Jesse, and you get a volume that continues to move the story along at a good pace with fun, sex, and violence along the way. ( )

Preacher rocks my world, but Cassidy is a prick. ( )

Cassidy the hard-living Irish vampire is in top form in the opening story, "Cassidy : Blood and Whisky". A hilarious skewering of vampire myths with a fiery - and shocking - conclusion to boot. And just as we are coming around to Cass's finer qualities, an element of doubt, carried by Tulip and surfacing through some wronged characters from Cassidy's past, keeps the tension alive for the next volume.
Certainly some people will be offended by this series' continual wallowing in the baser realms of human behaviour, but these are great characters of fiction by writer and artist. Beneath all the bestial and beastly beahviour on exhibit, at the core the Preacher series is about love and friendship, oh, and the quest to hunt down God and teach him a lesson. Epic stuff. ( )
