Preacher Dixie Fried
After destroying the headquarters of the all-powerful Grail conspiracy and freeing his hard-drinking vampire pal Cassidy from its dungeons, the Reverend Jesse Custer is about to reunite with his straight-shooting girlfriend Tulip O'Hare and resume his hunt for answers from an elusive God - provided that Tulip forgives him for leaving her behind during his little rescue mission.
But getting those answers will mean delving into the hidden mind of Genesis, the angel/demon offspring that has fused itself to Jesse's soul. And that will require some serious spiritual excavation - that kind that only real, down-home black magic can offer. Luckily, Cassidy happens to know a voodoo priest in New Orleans who can help unlock the Genesis memories in Jesse's head. Unluckily, Cassidy also has a cult of bloodthirsty vampire wannabes in New Orleans after his own head - and they couldn't care less about any bystanders that get in the way.
Dixie Fried is the fifth volume in the Preacher saga, one of the most celebrated comics titles of the late 1990s. Created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, this modern American epic of life, death, love and redemption is also packed with sex, booze, blood and bullets - not to mention angels, demons, God, vampires and deviants of all stripes - making for one of the most viscerally appealing tales ever to see four-color print.
