Yeah, pretty much what the headline says.

I wonder what that will end up looking like.

I'm on board. I think they've done an excellent job with Preacher, especially this season.

That'd be pretty spot-on casting, actually.

I've assumed the Simon Pegg looking guy was modeled after him. If not, that's a hell of a coincidence.

Some years back I'd have fought you for this, but these days?

Nah. Dude's an overgrown teenage edgelord in an old British man's body. I do love the shit out of a lot of what he's done, his Hellblazer run was straight-up genius and Preacher was just the sort of subversive shit I love, but he began to wear thin on me with his 'edgy' lazy rape shit.

I'm not going to disagree with any of that, but I will add that his Punisher run is absolutely my favorite and I think The Boys was great. Coincidentally, I just finished rereading the entire series a few weeks ago. I hadn't planned on it but was on a plane back from a business trip and had the first 30 issues loaded on my Nook. I started reading the first arc to pass some time and the next thing I knew I was going through the whole thing again. This is probably the fourth or fifth time I've read it.

Also, as I understood it, he absolutely modeled Wee Hughie after Simon Pegg and with Pegg's support.
