As convenient as technology is, it can become a double-edged sword. The more advancements that are made, the more we’ll come to rely on technology to carry out the smallest tasks.

Garth Ennis’ Preacher series has made a name for itself by being one of the most blasphemous and violent stories in comic book history. Preacher: Book Three is no exception, as Jesse Custer goes on a psychedelic road trip to New Orleans.
