"Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse embarks on a journey to, literally, find God, joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun)." (www.amc.com/shows/preacher)

Loving the source material, I have exceedingly high hopes for this series - something in itself a "rare(ish)" occurrence for myself, as i am mostly liberal with cross-medium adaptations, with one not necessarily needing to be beholden to the other … BUT I LOVED the comicbooks, and hope this adaptation does not dilute it … wishful thinking, I know … and if you'd actually read the series itself, you'd know what I mean, and the path to adaptation is a as close to a skip-n-hop on the edge of the precipice off a steep cliffside … nevertheless, go catch the first trailer HERE!
