August Books 11) Preacher [#5]: Dixie Fried

11) Preacher [#5]: Dixie Fried, by Garth Ennis

Back to the main narrative of this series of graphic novels, with our heroes in a comparatively tightly plotted narrative arc which takes them to New Orleans. I am enjoying the development of the relationship between Jesse (the eponymous preacher), girlfriend Tulip and vampire friend Cassidy, but still a bit squicked by the graphic violence. I wonder if Les Enfants du Sang were a deliberate homage to BtVS: Lie to Me.

One thought on “August Books 11) Preacher [#5]: Dixie Fried

  1. Yes, it’s a mean-spirited approach only slightly lifted by the entertaining style and level of detail. I think Malcolmson is basically annoyed that the archbishop he is really interested is generally sidelined, in his view wrongly, by Robinson’s more glamorous record.
