The Preacher on HBO

The PreacherI love cable TV, especially HBO. The writing and acting is on par (even better than most Hollywood productions, in my opinion.). The Sopranos, Entourage, Sex & The City, Six Feet Under, Rome, The Wire, and OZ(!!!)… the list is endless… but what really got my hormones nurturing is that HBO is creating Garth Ennis (writer) & Steve Dillon’s (artist) The Preacher as a TV series. I had last spoke about The Preacher initially on rayhom.com back in May 21, 2001, sadden that the graphic novel series has ended. At that time, I was ecstatic with graphic novel storytelling, but could never see them translated to the film medium. I was, of course, eventually proven wrong with what Robert Rodriguez did with Frank Miller’s Sin City. (I hope Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman will get considered next.) Here comes The Preacher!
