Preacher Jesse Custer hits the road again in this, the second collection of Preacher stories in graphic novel form. This time, the man looking for God meets the family from Hell. Recommended for adult readers only - contains bad language, sexual situations and extreme violence.
Merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan Preacher Jesse Custer becomes completely disillusioned with the beliefs that he had dedicated his entire life to. Now possessing the power of "the word," an ability to make people do whatever he utters, Custer begins a violent and riotous journey across the country. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, the Preacher loses faith in both man and God as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.
Warren Ellis and Darick Robertson's masterwork of gonzo science fiction and political soothsaying is finally available in a majestic Absolute Edition -- just as Nostradamus predicted! As vital and engaging today as when it first hit the stands, the weaponized viral meme that is TRANSMETROPOLITAN occupies the toxic quagmire that runs between the burning wreckage of print journalism and the repellent echo chamber of online media. Set in a terrifyingly plausible future defined by ever-accelerating technology, TRANSMETROPOLITAN shoves readers' outdated brains into an fMRI scanner and rewires their flabby cortexes into screaming processors of truth! This second of three volumes collects issues 19-39 of the original series together with the one-shot special FILTH OF THE CITY, and features a new introduction from Robertson as well as a host of historic extras.
