The Almighty has quit His Heaven, and the Reverend Jesse Custer - with the help of his girlfriend Tulip and his best friend, the Irish vampire Cassidy - aims to find out why. The Lord is hard to track, though, even for someone whose soul has been merged with a near-omnipotent supernatural entity called Genesis. To pick up the trail. Jesse needs to get inside his own head for a one-on-one talk with his guest - and for that, a fistful of peyote take under the open Arizona sky seems just the ticket.

What's waiting for him in Monument Valley, however, is something much less spiritual: an inter U.S. Army tank regiment, commandeered by the newly elevated Allfather of the Grail, Herr Starr. Determined to harness the power of Genesis for himself, Starr is willing to use everything in the American military arsenal to force Jesse to his will - and neither side is going to walk away from the showdown without taking heavy casualties.

War in the Sun is the sixth volume in the Preacher saga, one of the most celebrated comic 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.
