February Books 14) Preacher [#4] Ancient History

14) Preacher [#4]: Ancient History, by Garth Ennis (, .com)

The second half of Volume 3 in this series was devoted to the reminiscences of one of the main characters; Volume Four gives us three backstories about some of the background characters - the Saint of Killers, Arseface and Jesse's redneck relatives Jody and T.C. - altogether more enjoyable than any of the previous volumes, I thought, and in fact I would recommend readers wanting to get to know the series to start with this volume rather than any of the previous three.
