Seven weeks ago I stepped onto a new path, and that path was called PREACHER by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. With the AMC television adaptation kicking off, I was curious about the similarities and differences in comparison to the comic, and honestly, I wanted to see what the fuss was about. Anytime PREACHER came up among friends, nearly everyone commented enthusiastically about how much they enjoyed the series when it came out and how I should brace myself because, "Man, it gets weird."

I’d recommend the latest issue of SCALPED cuz nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like a gritty crime comic about a meth-addicted, under-cover FBI agent with a heroin junkie for a girlfriend, a murdered mother, and a pretend job as an enforcer for the local Mob boss who would not hesitate to kill him if he found out the truth. God bless us all...everyone!” –Will Dennis
In yesterday’s post we had a great quote by Garth Ennis. Speaking of Ennis, PREACHER, one of the most celebrated Vertigo titles ever, will be available in hardcover for the first time next month. Book One includes a new intro by Ennis himself, titled ’The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread’ and a pinup gallery of art from issues 50 and 66. Read the first issue here. And now for the pinups. Below, are a few that are included in this special volume.
Just days away from publication and GREEK STREET has people (well, not just any people, some of the most renowned names in comic history) yelling its praises from the US and across the pond from London. Ah, London, the setting of GREEK STREET and all its glorious inhabitants. “Sex, death, ambition, revenge and a reminder that some stories are too true and too dangerous to ever die. GREEK STREET crackles with Promethean fire.” —Grant Morrison “A mind-bending mashup of ancient myth and modern mayhem!” —Dave Gibbons, artist of WATCHMEN
