September Books 5) Preacher [#6]: War in the Sun

5) Preacher [#6]: War in the Sun, by Garth Ennis

Hmm. More in the series of the eponymous preacher, his girlfriend and his Irish vampire colleague; here we get the back-story to one of the villains, a sinister German, and a nuclear attack fails to take out any of our main characters. I am wondering if I will persevere with this series. I don't like what appears to be a consistent tone of mocking people with disabilities. Arseface seems more and more presented as comic relief; but what is really very funny about having a disfigured face and brain damage? And there are several other characters in this volume who are also in a similar situation. By the end of the book, our main hero Jesse Custer appears to have lost an eye, but remains handsome and smart. I don't really like the undertones.
