T.D.I.H. - Jan 16

Today was the birthday of Garth Ennis, a comic book writer, in 1970. He's British, and was born in Northern Ireland. His most famous series, Preacher, (written for DC's Vertigo line) is my favorite comic series of all time. His usual artist is Steve Dillon. The combination of Garth's stories and Dillon's art is unmistakable. Ennis is definitely not your typical kiddie book author. His books deal with adult subject matter and very graphic images. Below is an episode of iFanboy that is all about Preacher. (Note: the video has some swearing in it, and they discuss some of the adult themes contained within the book.)
