Preacher: Alamo

Episode 20

Johnny, Frances, and Dennis sit down to discuss Preacher: Alamo, the ninth and final volume of the original trade paperback, by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon.

In this episode of Graphic Novel Explorers Club the gang discusses the arch of Herr Starr; the archeology skills of Jesse Custer; Jesse’s plan to stop God and the deal he makes with The Saint of Killers while Cassidy makes a deal with God; Herr Starr’s solution for The Grail; if Jesse fixed his hand using a similar technique that Superman uses to shave; the shock of Arseface’s unimpressed attitude toward someone who wants be with him; if Jesse’s treatment of Tulip is any better or worse than Cassidy’s treatment of Tulip; the showdown of Jesse and Cassidy at the Alamo; the reveal of why Cassidy hides his eyes and the thematic reasons for that; if Jesse and Tulip truly loved each other; God’s plan for his creations; and the lessons, themes, and the true redemption in Preacher.
