The Sky Is Bigger in Texas

After months of anticipation, Preacher exploded onto screens last Sunday. The premiere episode of AMC's adaptation of the comic by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon established a key difference from the source material with the final scene: Jesse Custer, a.k.a. Preacher, decided his purpose was to stay in Annville and save the souls of its citizens, of his flock. He doesn't know what happened to him or that he possesses the Word of God—he might suspect something is off, but he isn't fully aware. Not yet.

It's Time to Head to Church and See Preacher

Whether it's on the page or screen, Preacher is an experience unlike any other. In a new series of posts, writer Amy Ratcliffe wades into the comic series which inspired AMC's new show, hitting the road with Custer, Tulip and Cassidy, and taking us all along for the ride.

A Vertigo Valentine’s Day with couples to remember

This Valentine’s Day I asked the Vertigo editors to pick a few couples from both classic and current Vertigo titles that defy our expectations of coupledom. I hope you enjoy this unique twist on the holiday we love to not love. Let’s start off with Will Dennis’ picks: scal_42_dylux-2-copy

What Vertigo titles do you recommend giving this holiday season?

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.
