Preacher: Dead or Alive is a stunning collection of the cover art from Garth Ennis' acclaimed Preacher series. Graphic-novel lovers know that the downside of not traipsing to the local comic shop every month is not getting hold of every cover of their favourite tale--and when the artist is as good as Glenn Fabry missing out on the cover art means missing out on a vital part of the Preacher product. Happily, all 66 issue covers are included here and, importantly in such a book, they are reproduced in their full glory without logos or text, alongside spin-off series' covers, graphic novel covers and black and white preliminary sketches. Also collected within are posters, trading cards and two covers previously deemed "too extreme". The book has an introduction by Ennis, a foreword by Fabry and running commentary on the creative process of one of the best comics to emerge for years. Fabry first came to comic lovers' attention with, arguably, the definitive rendering of 2000AD's Slaine but it is here with his full-colour Preacher covers that we really see what a master of the genre he has become. --Mark Thwaite --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
One man - the inimitable Glenn Fabry - has provided all the covers for Preacher's entire run, and now, Preacher: Dead or Alive brings them all together in a stunning full colour softcover collection. Every piece of Fabry's Preacher art is reproduced - unencumbered by text and logos for the first time - including all 66 issue covers, the spinoff series and graphic novel covers, posters, trading cards, and even (for the first time anywhere) two covers that were deemed 'too extreme' for use back when they were drawn! Garth Ennis provides an extended commentary to the artwork, revealing the inside stories behind each issue. As an added bonus, Fabry's and Ennis's preliminary sketches are also included.
