Dixie Fried

Dixie Fried - Steve Dillon, Garth Ennis Believe it or not, this was the most bizarre Preacher yet. The storytelling was exceptional, as usual, but the comedic elements were turned up to eleven!

In the beginning, Cassidy meets up with another vampire, something he thought would never happen. The douchebaggery oozing out of the fellow bloodsucker was off the charts. Cassidy has a hard time even believing that someone could act this way but understands where he's coming from when the only basis for vampire activity comes from the movies.

The story continues much along the same bath that Ennis has already worn down. Jessie is still on the search for God and is continuously trying to look within himself to find answers behind his possession by Genesis. He even goes so far to enlist the help of a practicing voodoo.. artist? What's the word you use there? You get the idea.

A pretty major revelation come to life in this volume that occurs between Cassidy and Tulip that will threaten the bond the 3 main characters share moving forward. I initially wasn't super fond of it because I wasn't quite sure of it's point. However, I still have a sizable journey to the end so I'm holding off judgement for now.

5 books in and this series is showing no signs of slowing down. They've already accomplished so much in the first 5 that I can't help but hope they haven't peaked early or will start showing signs of slowing down.

On to book 6!
