ON A WIN AND A PRAYER: The First Preacher Trailer

They may be only three panels, but having Herr Starr escape cannibals by hopping out of the desert on one leg cracks me up everytime I look at it. Writer Garth Ennis is truly my kind of twisted.

Hopefully the just released trailer for AMC's upcoming Preacher TV series, based on the comic that featured the above escape fail, obese people bombs, rag on a stick showers and more, keeps the same sense of humour and wrongness as Jesse Custer seeks out God for a little one on one. Only then will it ever be right.

 What do you think? 


  1. Like I told a good friend of mine that's a HUGE Preacher fan, who upon viewing the trailer was cautiously optimistic about the show following that, I sincerely hope it works out for all Preacher fans. Comic adaptions don't always work, but I'm hoping since its on a network with the likes of the Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, that it won't be too water-downed, like Constantine was on NBC. Here's hoping. Also, isn't Ennis involved with the show to some extent?

  2. I hope so too Dale - I'm over Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, S.H.I.E.L.D. and all the cheesy TV serials, but Walking Dead still blows me away with it's... umm... bite. Daredevil and Jessica Jones have or look to join that group, and depending on how stretched they make a limited series, Preacher could well join them.
