It ain’t HBO. So they can’t show the insane orgy-scat-fisting scene from Preacher. But they are AMC. And they’ve ordered a pilot based off of the goddamn glorious, goddamn irreverent, goddamn profane comic series.
This is wonderful. AMC is bringing Preacher to the small screen. Dope. Dope, dope, dope. While it isn’t my ideal channel (HBO seems the perfect venue for angels and demons fucking, fisting orgies, and such), this is a far better idea than cramming the beast into a two-hour movie.
[images & words is the comic book pick-of-the-week at OL. equal parts review and diatribe, the post highlights the most memorable/infuriating/entertaining book released that wednesday]
Spoilers Ahead. Forreal.
It isn’t always easy to choose a best comic of the week. Some weeks, none of the funny-mags I’ve picked up have any sort of Wow! to them. Other times, I’ve got a stack full of quality books and hate having to choose just one to feature.
This week, I’ve decided to make the entire process a bit easier. The name of this column, Images & Words, is named after the two separate media that combine to make comics. Oh, well, it’s actually named after a Dream Theater album. But the pun stands. So please just roll with it. Anyways, comics are composed of illustrations and text. As such, this week I am going to highlight both the artist and writer with whom I was most taken.
