The very first promotional image for PREACHER, the TV series based on the subversive Vertigo comic book series, has been tweeted by executive producer Seth Rogan!
Seth accompanied the image with this caption: “Preacher is coming to AMC! @evandgoldberg @SamCatlin123! The beginning is nigh!!!”
Rogan and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End) will write and serve as executive producers, while Sam Catlin will be the show-runner.
Written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Steve Dillon, the Preacher comic book series from Vertigo (home of The Sandman) told the story of Rev. Jesse Custer, a Texas preacher who lost his faith and is possessed by the supernatural entity called “Genesis” who grants him the power of the Word of God, with which Jesse can compel anyone to do his bidding. Jesse learns that God has left heaven, so Jesse sets out to make God answer for abandoning his creation. Meanwhile, a group of angels summon the immortal Saint of Killers to stop Jesse and reclaim Genesis.
That upside-down church image makes a whole lot of sense, doesn’t it?
