    1 thought on “Preacher, Volume 8: All Hell's a-Coming”

    1. This was a great volume. I would call this one Tulip's book. We get her backstory, she is in it a lot, and I definitely like her more after reading this. A powerful person from Herr Starr's past reappears and he is shitting his pants, afraid that he is going to get caught and all his scheming, betrayal, and usurping is going to be brought to light. We actually see several characters reappear and I am curious to see how they might play a part in the next final volume.My main disappointment is the [...]

    2. Guess who has gotten back together? This one's heartwarming and and heartbreaking, and the rest of the time, we get to see the dark side of Cass. Yes, that's right, we get to know just how big a ponce that wanker really is.My ire is stoked in equal measure to how relieved I am that Jesse and Tulip are on the mends.As for Starr? Omg he's still one of the most absolutely pathetic super-villains I've ever read and pure comedic gold. Still. All the dominoes are set up and ready to fall for the last [...]

    3. As I’ve previously stated, I firmly believe that anyone who hasn’t already completed the entire run of Preacher should NOT be reading any reviews or summaries of these later volumes. All I can safely say is that this is an interlude before the final volume in which nothing big seems to happen, but it’s critical for setting the stage of the ending. Also, if you ever find yourself performing oral sex in an alley in exchange for heroin, you might want to take a second look at your life choice [...]

    4. This is another Ennis book that has been dragged on too longe last volume, Salvation, was greatis? Not so much. to homophobia, vampires, and the Churchoh and stupid violence. I rate this as 2 stars because Tulip has a great backstory, and because Jesse is still ok. Cassidy has always been a dick, how is this a revelation??? Thanks for the horrible reading day Garth!!

    5. So conflicted over this one. It's homophobic, anti-French, reactionary, ultra-conservative, sex-negative gotta love all that Preacher right-wing weirdness, right? But then there's this whole backstory about Tulip that's kind of cheesy but I [heart:] Tulip so that's oh, just so MFing dandy. Then there's a Very Special Episode of Preacher Starring Cassidy's Drug Problem And His Manipulation of Tulip, during which I realized that in creating Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and in putting together [...]

    6. I know that one of Preacher's major appeals is its shock factor and gross-out humor. But, while I generally enjoy it for that reason too, I sometimes find myself wishing that Garth Ennis would give it a rest. I mean, we get your point already, Garth: America is filled with inbred, gun-toting racists. But, for page after page, he keeps ramming that point home. (I'm sure he'd love the usage of "ramming" in that last sentence.) The problem is that, as far as social commentary goes, it's pretty blun [...]

    7. Here's the book where all the threads start tightening up - everything that's gone before is coming together slowly, and we get to feel some measure of resolution to face the Big Climax Of All The Things. Tulip's origin story is beautiful, poetic and absolutely appropriate to the woman we've gotten to know.Jesse's little cross-country driving trip is more than a little amusing, picking up some interesting characters along the way and hearing out their bizarro stories. Then we get into the shit f [...]

    8. I cannot fathom how can the TV show bring in all the evil fun in this series, all the violence, blasphemies, with all the sex, drugs, impending armageddon and vampires in between. Preacher volume eight, the penultimate volume to this excellent series prepares everything towards the end. But except for Jesse and Tulip gearing up for their eventual encounter with god, things are not going fine with Herr Starr and Arseface (the literal dickhead and assface respectively).I liked how Ennis left a bla [...]

    9. I think, considering that this was the penultimate episode of a story that has so many characters and plot threads, this volume was as good as could be expected.There is a lot of variety in this issue -- Tulip's back-story, Jesse's cross country drive, Jesse and Tulip's reunion, a bit of color on Amy, more skeletons in Cassidy's closet, further degradation of Herr Starr, and a car-thievin', horse-rustlin', adventure from Jesse, Tulip and Amy's past. The end of that particular story is one of my [...]

    10. One-and-a-half stars. During this volume, I concluded that the Preacher series is really just a testosterone-heavy romance. The (supposed) plot it introduced early on (Jesse's quest (view spoiler)[to find God and learn why God quit (hide spoiler)]) has been given very little attention throughout the series. Instead the series has mostly consisted of off-topic detours from that plot, all while making the actual focus Jesse and Tulip's relationship. With each new episode bringing its own form of u [...]

    11. Pretty much hit all the notes below. Tulip's origin story is great, Cassidy's true colors are horrifying, and Jesse's cross-country drive is delightful.-----NOV 2011 RE-READ:Things start to pay off, with Cassidy's true colors and story coming to light, Tulip and Jesse reunited, the Grail falling apart at the hands of Starr's monomaniacal pursuit of revenge against Jesse, and everything else starting to set up for the final apocalyptic volume.For all it sounds like, it's a very human volume, with [...]

    12. The penultimate book of this series is mostly an interlude showing some of Cassidy's past and how Tulip and Jesse met. Still brutal and often irreverent, but fun. Looking forward to the finale of this very well crafted story!

    13. 04 January 2013Rating: * * 1/2I think if I weren't one volume away from completing this series I would quit. Some of the things I originally loved about Preacher are the very things I can't stand now. Initially, I had mad respect for Garth Ennis for putting such shocking things onto paper. However, the highfalutin political rants divert greatly from a truly compelling story. **WARNING**If you easily get queasy and you are a wuss when it comes to animal suffering, skip pages 235-237.Preacher, Vol [...]

    14. 5 Insane-Stars! ☆☆☆☆☆The beginning starts off with Tulip and her escape from Cassidy and also gives a glimpse into her childhood. And i must say, its f#%ked up to see what made Tulip the person she is today. I mean the way her father died Just f#%k!! And then Tulip's only friend gets raped F#%K!!!Insane sh!t happens in this book! ke, one of the two 'sexual bounty hunters' detectives had to suck off 'fifteen guys' till they came for gas money because they were broke. -What?! Then, a bar [...]

    15. This book is the weakest of the bunch so far, in my opinion. It had a lot of stuff happening but none of it really stood out as great.The beginning started with a little backstory on Tulip and Amy. Why she hates guns. I kind of liked this arc, but it almost was too cliched and too brief. After that there is an issue with Custer on the road picking up people that was more or less pointless. Then we have some reunions which were a little too saccharine to be believed. Then Custer goes on a little [...]

    16. This is one of the best volumes in the Preacher series.It opens with Tulip's backstory. Her dad taught her to be tough, how to shoot, how to defend herself and what it is to be a good guy in this world. This story also covers how she first met Jesse and later how she got away from Cassidy.There's a single issue covering Jesse's trip from Salvation to New York intent on finding Tulip. It's enjoyable for the commentary about America. Anybody who argues that this comic is jingoistic is apparently n [...]

    17. Ennis finally sets up the end game while lobbing intermittent back- and side-stories at us. It's to be a showdown at the Alamo, naturally.This long, busy volume contains my single favorite panel of the entire run: a man who just learned that his wife died in childbirth sitting blankly in a chair in an otherwise empty white panel. In the next panel a nurse fetches him and we see that he's in a hospital outside the neonatal ward. Wonderful way to visually convey his state of mind.Plot points: (vie [...]

    18. I have to say my favourite bit of this volume is where we go into Tulip's backstory and how she is when she comes too after six months of drugs and booze with Cassidy - and man am I having issues with Cassidy. On one hand you have all these fun times and fun memories but on the other you're learning all this less than fun stuff over this volume and the last too. Just jeeze. I also love how Jesse stays out of it for the most part. He lets Tulip do her thing and doesn't fight the battle for her. H [...]

    19. One Hell of a ride. Absolutely worth it. Angels, demons, heaven, hell, feminism, deformed-from-a-failed-suicide teenager, gunslingers, global conspiracies, cannibalism, vampires, drugs, sex, rock 'n' roll, all centered around a mission to bring God to account for his creation. And yes, I left a ton of stuff out.

    20. This volume gives background on Tulip, delves into the darker side of Cassidy's history, and allows us to catch up with Arseface and Herr Starr. It also brings Jesse back on track for his quest to find God and give him a stern talking to. Although I enjoyed it, I'm ready for the big showdown! It's been an interesting trip and I'm anxious to see how everything gets resolved for the Preacher.

    21. Una saga en que la premisa principal es muy jugosa y sangrienta. Pero infla las hojas con historias auto conclusa que tiene como protagonista estos atractivos personajes. Pero pierden interés, pues lo realmente interesante es el fin por el que se creó la historia.

    22. Probably my favourite in the series. Herr Starr is one of the best characters ever created. Kind of like the Dick Dastardly of the Grail. DOOM COCK!!!

    23. This is usually the point in a series where things start falling apart. After all, endings are hard. The author either doesn't have a clear plan, doesn't know how to execute it or tries to please everyone and ends up just pissing everyone off. Preacher, on the other hand, doesn't seem to slowing down in the least! All the threads are starting to gather tightly together in this penultimate volume and that makes it a joy to read. I continue to just be floored by how excellent the writing is - bett [...]

    24. I am left asking myself "How are they going to resolve all of this conflict in one more volume?"Preacher, Volume 8: All Hell's a-Coming sets the stage to resolve the conflict of this story, but I am still clueless as to how Jesse's "mission" is going to turn out.It's bittersweet that I am near the end of this series, but I must admit, that I am very eager to read the last volume. And I think that's essential when a story is coming to an end. The Preacher series so far has given me characters tha [...]
