preacher-reddit-comic-reading-insideYou have seen the show, cheered for your favorite characters; you have walked the world along side angels and cursed the Big Lebowski to the best of your ability. Now it’s time, AMC Preacher fans, to go back to the source material… back to where it all started.

Yours truly is organizing a reading of the entire Preacher series on Reddit’s r/Preacher subreddit. We are going to read the comics all the way through, from issue # 1, all the way up to the finale epic issue #66. For those that don’t know, the issues have been collected into 6 volumes in trade paperback (the most common format you will find the story in these days), and it’s by those books that we will be grouping the issues under. You can find the complete schedule for reading below.

If you have read Preacher before and are familiar with the comics, this is a perfect opportunity to re-read the whole thing during the down time until Season 2 kicks off. If you are brand new to the comics and have only watched the TV show to this point, boy are you ever in for a treat if you tag along. Preacher is, quite literally, one of the best pieces of modern fiction ever written. I have organized the reading schedule to accommodate different reading paces, so if you like to take your time, I got you covered. Please consider joining us as we follow along with  Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare, and Cassidy yet again, its going to be a blast. Trust me on that.

As the blog post title mentions, we are starting September 4th, so if you want to join us for this awesome community read, be sure pick up you reading material before that time and I’ll catch you at the Five Aces Diner in about a couple of weeks…
