HORROR COMIC FANS REJOICE!
It’s been reported all over the Internet that AMC may be making a Preacher pilot. Yes, AMC – the home of the latest comic to television series The Walking Dead. I always assumed Preacher would be more of a HBO/Showtime series based solely on the gratuitous violence, but if AMC has proven one thing – it’s shown that they have no problem displaying massive amounts of gore on public cable.
For those of you who have never heard of Preacher (and seriously what the hell – run quickly to your local comic store). Preacher shares the tale of Jesse Custer, a preacher who when possessed by a spiritual being journeys across the US to find God. You see, God has left heaven and his people behind. Going through numerous battles with supernatural insanity alongside vampires and other hell-spawn creatures, Jesse is determined to find out why.
Although nothing is confirmed yet – per ComingSoon.net, series fans such as Seth Rogen among others have taken to social media to show their support.
Looks like about seven years of hard work are about to pay off. I may get to bring one of my favourite stories ever to life.

Arseface. John Wayne, The Saint of Killers.
