Book Review
It's trite but true: you can't keep a good man down. Holier-than-anyone Jesse Custer comes back from the dead--or wherever--in the eighth collection of Preacher, All Hell's A-Coming. Garth Ennis's knack for developing characters slowly and almost effortlessly pays off more and more with each issue, and by now Custer, his lover Tulip, and his vampire friend Cassidy are as complex as anyone you're likely to meet. The story arc focuses on Tulip's own resurrection from her unlife of booze, drugs, and Cassidy as she reunites with the Preacher, and this powerful tale doesn't require any superheroic conflict to affect the readers. (Fans of the Voice will be disappointed to learn that it's only used once, in an amusing throwaway scene.) As this develops, the nefarious Grail suffers from internal struggle, and poor Arseface finds...

Here's a book guaranteed to offend a bunch of people, not only because of its profuse profanity and graphic violence, but because it's the epitome of iconoclasm. Like a brutal accident, you can't watch but you can't turn away. The story follows an ex-preacher man, Jesse, who has become disgusted with God's abandoning of His responsibilities. So Jesse starts off into the wilds of Texas with his hitman girlfriend and new best friend (a vampire) to find God so that he can give Him a piece of his mind. Despite its superficial perversity, this book contains what may be the most moral character in mainstream comics. A cult hit in the making. Fans of Quentin Tarantino take note.

Book Review
In and of itself, the story of a man with one foot in Heaven and one foot in Hell is hardly original. But in the hands of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the story of Jesse Custer becomes a blasphemous masterpiece seething with originality. Custer is a former Texas minister who was joined with a spiritual being called "Genesis." Now Custer is on a journey to find God, but not in the traditional enlightenment sense. I mean track Him down and give Him a piece of his mind. Along for the journey are his gun-friendly girlfriend and his Irish punk vampire buddy. Until the End of the World starts with a flashback to Jesse's childhood, when he watched his father get shot in the head. That kicks off "All in the Family," the first of two stories in this collection. The second story, "Hunters," features the character Jesus de Sade. Yes,...

Dream: A Tale of Wonder, Wisdom and Wishes

Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Gr. 9-12. Fifteen well-known illustrators contributed beautiful artwork to this heavy-handed, inspirational fable in free-verse poetry. On each spread, Bosak describes a stage of life, writing in the voice of a wise elder who associates each age with a color: as a "cuddled and comforted" baby, the speaker loves yellow; as a teenager struggling with questions of identity and life purpose, the speaker loves blue. Then, as an adult depressed by life's ambiguities, the speaker sees gray everywhere until he (or she?) realizes the powerful impact of dreams, which transform the world into a hopeful green. The greeting-card sentimentality isn't for everyone, but the fine, detailed images from Leo and Diane Dillon, Raul Colon, and others may attract aspiring artists. Older teens, especially graduating seniors, may particularly...

The Reverend Jesse Custer is a Texas minister who swears worse than a sailor and is not above killing people who get in his way. One might say he's lost his faith. No, he's just looking for God, and when he finds Him... Proud Americans is another sick and fun addition to the Preacher series. This book contains three story lines: One, a short tale about Custer's father in Vietnam. Two, a recounting of the transformation of Custer's Irish buddy Cassidy into a vampire and his coming to America. And three, the conclusion to the story begun in Preacher: Until the End of the World, the story of the angelic mafia (known as the Grail) who have come after Reverend Custer and the secret power inside him called "Genesis." --Jim Pascoe

From School Library Journal
Grade 11 Up–Set in the underside of Liverpool, England, this story opens with a man hanging himself in the dank basement of a crime-infested high-rise. John Constantine (our hero) turns up to visit his sister, who lives in the building, and learns of his niece Gemma's disappearance. As he walks around the building searching for her, he bumps into both petty criminals and syndicate-level thugs. He goes to lunch with their kingpin, who tries to stab him with a fork. As he learns where his niece is being held, he also teams up with an ancient woman living with her servants in a huge mansion. Clarice, as she's called, has a portal into Hell where she summons demons to wreak havoc. Having arranged a secret trick to save his niece, Constantine walks over to the kingpin's hideout, planning to rescue her. This...
