Sort of because Just a Pilgrim
, now I'm reading Preacher
. 30 issues (out of 66) in, I can say I'm enjoying it far to much. I also feel like it should be a guilty pleasure, but it isn't. o.o
This comic doesn't only acknowledge that it is irreverent, heretic, offensive and gross. It embraces it. Here's a... uh, 'nice' summary from issue 27
. It only leaves out brainwashing, child abuse and domestic violence because that character wasn't around for that flashaback. Yet, the plot is quite interesting and the premise very simple enough: this is just a man's (literal) quest for God.
I love the twists, even though they can be very absurd at times, and I love how things get so over the top that you can't help but laugh. And I love how it just keeps breaking my heart now and then.
In a different note, I'm also watching (FINALLY) Kyou Kara Maou
's third season. And, due peer presure from countlessuntruths
, I started the fourth Percy Jackson book even though I still don't have the last one. :|
I'm actually a little uncomfortable with all of that because I like it better when I'm only reading/watching only one thing at a time from end to finish. Otherwise it tends to be likely that I drop something. There's a reason I like it better when the stuff I'm reading and watching is either finished or the author has announced they have an idea of how long it's going to be. Like Arakawa, who, as I understand it, said Fullmetal Alchemist
was going to take around 100 chapters and she's finishing it next month with 108. Or Jim Butcher, who said The Dresden Files
are going to be like 20 books and an apocalyptic trilogy.
The conclusion I've drawn from all of that is that I'm odd. And that I should be focusing on the prompts I claimed from SPK.
