Here we have the ongoing journey of Custer, trying to (literally) find God and rescue his friend, the vampire Cassidy. He's been taken by religious fanatics who are trying to lure Custer to them. These religious fanatics think Jesus married Mary Magdalene and are obsessed with protecting the bloodline of that lineage. Here is the last descendant of Christ.He's nick-named The Messiah and is so inbred that he goes around pissing everywhere and saying "I'm the messiah! Humper dumper dido!"After two thousand years of keeping them breeding inside the one bloodline, we're lucky the bastard doesn't have antennae. This is the leaders of the Grail, Allfather D'Aronique. I guess he's the kid's handler or mentor. He's a BIG OLD thing.He's also bulimic. He gorges himself, then has this device with two fingers he sticks down his throat, throws up, and then goes for cake!I thought the story was a little slow-going until these guys showed up. Custer sort of teams up with Starr, who decides he wants to take down the grail. He kind of does his thing and then disappears when the shit hits the fan. Typical. Bastard.Tulip leaves early on in this one, which was fine with me. I've heard she gets pretty badass as the series goes on, but so far, she just provides the relationship drama. But Custer ditches her like an ass to go off and rescue Cassidy alone because he doesn't want her to get hurt. He still pretty much treats her as just the girlfriend.So Cassidy gets tortured like crazy in this, but it's obvious he was going to make it.The seraphim/angel that boinked the demon (dad of the half demon half angel thing that is inside Custer) is back. God is not happy with him. Lesson of the day: if you're a seraphim, do NOT screw the demons, no matter how hot they are!At the end, we get Cassidy's origin story. How he became a vampire. It was interesting, but most of it was an info dump and not about his actual turning, but what he was doing back then.Cassidy's still my favorite.

Ennis began his comic writing career in 1989 with the series Troubled Souls Appearing in the short lived but critically acclaimed British anthology Crisis and illustrated by McCrea, it told the story of a young, apolitical Protestant man caught up by fate in the violence of the Irish Troubles It spawned a sequel, For a Few Troubles More, a broad Belfast based comedy featuring two supporting characters from Troubled Souls, Dougie and Ivor, who would later get their own American comics series, Dicks, from Caliber in 1997, and several follow ups from Avatar.Another series for Crisis was True Faith, a religious satire inspired by his schooldays, this time drawn by Warren Pleece Ennis shortly after began to write for Crisis parent publication, 2000 AD He quickly graduated on to the title s flagship character, Judge Dredd, taking over from original creator John Wagner for a period of several years Ennis first work on an American comic came in 1991 when he took over DC Comics s horror title Hellblazer, which he wrote until 1994, and for which he currently holds the title for most issues written Steve Dillon became the regular artist during the second half of Ennis s run Ennis landmark work to date is the 66 issue epic Preacher, which he co created with artist Steve Dillon Running from 1995 to 2000, it was a tale of a preacher with supernatural powers, searching literally for God who has abandoned his creation.While Preacher was running, Ennis began a series set in the DC universe called Hitman Despite being lower profile than Preacher, Hitman ran for 60 issues plus specials from 1996 to 2001, veering wildly from violent action to humour to an examination of male friendship under fire.Other comic projects Ennis wrote during this time period include Goddess, Bloody Mary, Unknown Soldier, and Pride Joy, all for DC Vertigo, as well as origin stories for The Darkness for Image Comics and Shadowman for Valiant Comics.After the end of Hitman, Ennis was lured to Marvel Comics with the promise from Editor in Chief Joe Quesada that he could write The Punisher as long as he cared to Instead of largely comical tone of these issues, he decided to make a much serious series, re launched under Marvel s MAX imprint.In 2001 he briefly returned to UK comics to write the epic Helter Skelter for Judge Dredd.Other comics Ennis has written include War Story with various artists for DC The Pro for Image Comics The Authority for Wildstorm Just a Pilgrim for Black Bull Press, and 303, Chronicles of Wormwood a six issue mini series about the Antichrist , and a western comic book, Streets of Glory for Avatar Press.In 2008 Ennis ended his five year run on Punisher MAX to debut a new Marvel title, War Is Hell The First Flight of the Phantom Eagle In June 2008, at Wizard World, Philadelphia, Ennis announced several new projects, including a metaseries of war comics called Battlefields from Dynamite made up of mini series including Night Witches, Dear Billy and Tankies, another Chronicles of Wormwood mini series and Crossed both at Avatar, a six issue miniseries about Butcher from The Boys and a Punisher project reuniting him with artist Steve Dillon subsequently specified to be a weekly mini series entitled Punisher War Zone, to be released concurrently with the film of the same name.Taken from enpedia wiki Garth_Ennis. The best Book Preacher, Volume 3: Proud Americans Well now! It looks like Robert Langdon has nothing on Ennis! And Ennis beat him to the punch, no? Pretty delicious! I'm probably gonna gorge myself on these comics until I get as big as that fat man with the idiot. :)Seriously though, Cassidy makes for a wonderful damsel in distress and he sure can take a lot of punishment, too. Even better was the tiny guest appearances of god, this time moving on from Tulip and giving Cass a little ugly heart-to-heart. Beast! lolAll told, extremely entertaining and obviously nothing scares Ennis. Nothing at all. I'm loving it. Total no-holds-barred glorious shite. Starr was a hoot and a half. Never met a funnier villain. Not for the faint of heart or those who regularly clean their tongues with bars of soap. :)
