Hello again my serial television loving readers, so it was just about three weeks ago that I shared the full trailer for the “Preacher” series second season and if you missed it, just click on THIS LINK to catch up with us. Okay you’re back. So the series got a green light on the new season as you know and the show will begin tonight with a special premiere before heading over to Monday nights. Don’t forget to program your DVR or dust off the old VCR and find a couple of tapes.
Hey there my serial television loving readers, I wondered if you ever gave the small screen adaptation of the hit Vertigo series “Preacher” a chance when it ran during its first season a few months ago. Did you like it? I watched it and have to admit that I was left for want with it despite liking the work that Cooper and Gilgun did. Anyway, a second season is coming and here is the full official trailer for what lies ahead. This might sound like a bit of a deja vu and it is of course since the same words apply. Here we go.

We were saddened to learn of the passing of artist Steve Dillon earlier in the day on Saturday. His brother announced it via social media and no cause of death was disclosed even though some others have mentioned that he was ill recently – he was 54 years of age and the cause was complications of a ruptured appendix. We loved Steve’s work on the original “Hellblazer” series and of course the iconic “Preacher” title – both of which he worked on with Garth Ennis for the DC Comics Vertigo imprint. They also worked on a “Punisher” series for Marvel Comics which I didn’t read myself but heard was a pretty violent title. I guess I need to look into that one now. Dillon was recently at the NY Comic Con mega-happening that took place at the Javits Center but we didn’t manage to see him.
We wish his family, friends and colleagues in the medium all the condolences in the world. Thanks Steve for some inspiring and amazing art, may you Rest In Peace.
Fans of the DC Vertigo Comics series “Preacher” should be excited as tonight the AMC Network will premiere the first episode of the new live series. The Black Comedy is one of my own favorite comic series and I think that the creators of the show will have their work cut out for them. Check out the show information and cast along with the poster below and I’ll return at the close with added thoughts.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now when I first showcased the trailer for the program on THIS POST I wasn’t too keen on it but with the season ending for “The Flash”, “Agents of SHIELD” and “Supergirl” I will have some room on the DVR to let it record and catch up when my schedule slows down. Maybe it will be better than I had initially anticipated and will grow on me. I hope so because I was a stickler for this one remaining as close to the comic book as possible. Will you watch this show? Let me know in the comments section below.
