Reeling from the sight of Tulip and Cassidy together, Jesse finds himself in the town of Salvation, where he is visited by his past and also has to contend with the oddball villain, Odin Quincannon, who has an unhealthy fascination with meat and meat by-products. After that, Jesse also gets some answers about what happened in Monument Valley, and we get another Vietnam story about Jesse's dad. Each issue makes you want to keep on reading more. ( )

Ah, yes, Jessie's attempt at law... ( )

Deadwood = Preacher, tv style? This is what happens here, pretty much. New sheriff in town, corrupt business types, etc., etc. Sherlock Holmes had something to say about small country towns and nowheresville type places.

There is an evil meat baron, and corrupt cop, a dominatrix accountant, a one armed relative, and a good looking deputy. So of course Jesse ends up with the sheriff job by default, and a whole pile of problems come with it.

After the events of War in the Sun, Jesse Custer needs to take some time out to lick his wounds and try to remember just what exactly happened and why his fall from an airplane apparently didn't kill him. He drifts into the town of Salvation, Texas, and in short order finds himself made sheriff and standing off against Odin Quincannon, the local meat baron who runs the town. Great stuff -- as always, this is by turns ludicrous, hilarious, and heartwrenching. ( )
