ajs writes "Ain't It Cool News is reporting that Preacher is now confirmed as an upcoming HBO series. For those that are unaware, Preacher was a mid-90s DC comics series that followed the exploits of a Texas preacher who becomes embroiled in a supernatural power strugle involving angels, devils, shadowy church organizations, John Wayne, his ex-girlfriend and his Irish drinking buddy. In concept, it's a bit like The Wizard of Oz as done by Tarantino and Troma Films. How or if HBO will sanitize it for TV is not clear."
"The algorithm to do that is extremely nasty. You might want to mug
someone with it."
