GOOD NEWS: DC/Vertigo's awesome comic series PREACHER by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon is coming to the boob tube care of HBO!!! Perfect!!!!
BAD NEWS: Its going to be directed by Howard Deutch (Grumpy Old men) and adapted by Mark Steven Johnson (Daredevil, Ghost Rider).
Hmmmm... I heard that the fine folks behind the new Battlestar Galactica are involved, too, but I couldn't find anything online to confirm.....
If you haven't read the comics, don't wait for this show. Go out and pick up the trade paperbacks which collect the finite series. In fact many libraries have em to check out for free, you cheap bastards.
If you like Tarantino flicks, John Wayne & Clint Eastwood movies, dig the supernatural and love a good ole fashion Americana romance story embedded in hyper-violence and hyper-fetish, then you'll love Preacher. One of may all-time favorite stories and comics ever!!!
