 Preacher (comics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Preacher is a comic book created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, published by the Vertigo imprint of DC Comics, with painted covers by Glenn Fabry.
Preacher is notable mainly for its extremely strong character-building and its focus on storytelling, the handling of religious and supernatural themes in an unapologetic way (which many may find objectionable), the extremely dark and frequently violent humor, and the wide range of influences from outside comics.
In particular, Preacher draws on western movies for many of the stylistic elements (and openly acknowledges it - an apparition of John Wayne is a recurring character which serves as a sort of spiritual guide for Custer).
