TNTM Trade Of the Month Preacher Book One
Garth Ennis Writer Steve Dillon Artist

I feel like this is one of those books that's a perfect description of a story in which the writer had something in mind but it ended up becoming something else, something better, something the story, itself, had to tell. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon created Preacher. For hardcore comic book readers Garth Ennis is a household name. I for one have known of him for a while but not from any of his works. He's mostly know for, by, and because of Preacher. Whereas I have seen Steve Dillon's art in many a Marvel comic book. The work he did in Preacher apes anything else he's ever done. I've heard so many remarkable things about Preacher yet I've only read it recently. Part of the reason is that AMC has made it into a show. The other reason is because I despise Dillon's art. In almost every single Marvel comic I have read that has his art the characters tend to look the same whether it's the Hulk, Punisher, or Elektra. They all have the same face and square jaw structure. For an amateur that's fine but that's not what I expect from Marvel comics or what's been called one of the greatest comic book works of all time.
