8) Preacher [#2]: Until the End of the World, by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon

Read the first of these a few months ago, found it compelling despite the violence. The second volume has two separate stories; first our hero confronts his horrific relatives in Texas, then he and his friends find themselves disrupting a very debauched party in San Francisco. The first bit seemed to me a bit implausible even in the framework of the narrative so far; the nasty relatives turn out to be vulnerable to a few well-aimed punches and gunshots. The second bit seemed to me to gel better, despite the graphic violence there were actual moments of slapstick humour. People tell me it gets better from here so I'll probably buy more in the series.

Preacher is one of these things that seems great when you are reading it, but after the fact you wonder "What was that all about?". Some have suggested that the characters are far more entertaining than the plot. I found the whole thing's relentlessly macho violence-solves-all-problems, gay-people-all-get-killed mindset a bit puerile. I also was never able to make up my mind whether Ennis was taking the piss with all that "America, Fuck Yeah!" stuff.

Has Herr Starr showed up yet? He's great.
