weaver of the unseen

If you happened to come across Preacher I would recommend you to pop into a local comic/games shop to acquire this incredible series before AMC starts airing the episodes. At the moment, there has been only a few picks and couple of rumours about the pilot, but for now it seems that Preacher is getting full treatment, and you, gentle viewers, another incredible show that otherwise wouldn't had seen daylight in the small screen. Thing is, there's no way to make this story into a single movie or three. Preacher takes Reverend Jesse Custer to trip across US heartland on a quest of find God after he was given some extraordinary powers.

The cast also included Ruth Negga (Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s flower-dress-wearing Raina) as Jesse's ex, Joseph Gilgun (of This Is England and Misfits) as a vampire, Tom Brooke (Wiggy from Sherlock series 3) as an angel, and Ian Colletti (of American comedy drama Rake) as a disfigured character called Arseface.
Of course, there could be casting changes before Preacher comes to our screens, but that's a fairly impressive line-up as it is.
