Dustin: You do realize that we recorded this last week, right? Like a week ago, last week.

Timothy: Yeah, but we had the mid-season finale of Fear the Walking Dead last week and the premiere of Preacher, and then nothing this Sunday, so...

Dustin: So you thought you’d keep us on a weekly schedule, with the second episode of Preacher coming out June 5th. I suppose this is acceptable.

Timothy: Gee. Thanks. Anyway, unlike our reviews of The Walking Dead, where we both had read the comic, you haven’t read Preacher.

Dustin: Nope, and you have, so we get to have both someone watching it with fresh eyes and the view of a fan of the comic. Should be fun. Take a listen.

Preacher is based on the Vertigo Comics title written by Garth Ennis with art by Steve Dillon, covers by Glenn Fabry. First released in March 1996, the entire run of 75 issues tells the story of Jesse Custer, who suddenly finds himself possessing (or possessed by?) a power, and he finds himself on a journey with former girlfriend Tulip O’Hare and an Irish vampire named Cassidy.

 

Preacher airs Sunday nights at 9/8c on AMC.
