Preacher at it's best.
Reviewed in the United States on October 29, 2015
I've complained in my past few reviews about Preacher devoting too much time to flashbacks and side stories that don't really advance the plot. And so we come upon volume five, a book devoted almost entirely to flashbacks and side stories that don't really advance the plot. And yu know what?
It doesn't matter.
Needing to take a break from his quest to find God and do some soul searching, Jessie Custer goes to the town of Salvation, Texas and becomes the sherriff. His time as a cop takes up more than half the volume, and it works. The characters and dialogue shine in this collection of Preacher, creating the best collection in the series thus far.
Well, time to end this.
