Well, here we are… the end of the road.
And man, what an end this was.
I was half expected the series to end with a whimper because everything I truly love never seems to know how to properly end itself. But Garth Ennis penned a worthy story that channels back to a lot of what he built this series off of and gives us a pretty satisfactory conclusion to not just the series but to all the plot threads involving the key characters.
Having also just finished the television series, I can say that the comic is, by far, the superior version of the story with the better ending for all parties involved.
This moved by at a brisk pace, pushed the envelope as it always does but it gave us a real slice of humanity amongst all the rubble and edgy boi ’90s shit.
I didn’t really know how much I loved these characters until their stories concluded.
It’s really hard to talk more about it other than my actual feelings because to delve into the plot, at this point, would kind of spoil the whole thing.
Frankly, just read this series if you haven’t. It’s one of the best long running series ever created for the comic book medium.
Pairs well with: the other Preacher stuff, as well as ’90s Spawn and Garth Ennis’ run on Shadowman.
