‘Preacher’: AMC Releases New Video All About The Saint Of Killers


Preacher returns for its second season this Sunday and to celebrate the occasion, AMC has released a new video featuring everything we know so far about the history of the show’s Season 2 Big Bad, The Cowboy, aka The Saint of Killers, as played by Graham McTavish.

Entiled “How the Saint of Killers Became a Killing Machine,” the video is fully comprised of footage from the show’s first season, the entire video runs a little over half an hour, but if you need a refresher course on The Saint of Killers, it will surely be time well spent. The Saint of Killers is an awesome character from the comics and I can’t wait to see the carnage that occurs when he finally catches up with Jesse Custer, Tulip and Cassidy.

Check out the video below:

From executive producers, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad), and based on the comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip and Graham McTavish as The Cowboy/The Saint of Killers. Noah Taylor, Pip Torrens and Julie Ann Emery have also joined the cast for Season 2. Here is the official Season 2 synopsis:

Preacher follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), who is inhabited by the renegade spawn of an angel and demon and gains the power to control people with just a word. The series’ second season returns this summer and follows Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God, dealing with issues both worldly and other-worldly along the way.

Preacher returns for its second season on AMC this Sunday, June 25th, at 10pm ET/PT. The second episode will air the following night in the show’s new timeslot, Mondays at 9pm ET/PT.

10 Independent Comics Perfect For TV

Independent Comics
I really don’t understand why so many great, independent comics are being ignored by Hollywood executives.

Marvel and DC dominated television in 2016 with the Arrowverse bringing the Legends of Tomorrow into the mix and Netflix adding both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage to their expanding list of original titles.  Comic book films also did well in the box office last year, even if the critics weren’t always too happy, so it seems  from an investment perspective comic book properties are still a good bet.  Independent comics are full of characters and concepts that have the potential to become the next big thing.   Fortunately, with Valiant’s recent announcement of an online Ninjak series and FX finally naming a show runner for their Y:The Last Man adaptation, it seems comic fans have a lot to look forward to in the years ahead.

Here’s a list of 10 more comics ripe for the silver screen. Click Next to start!
