do you know what does walking dead better than walking dead?



yeah, that is an archie comic. jughead's dog gets run over by reggie and dies. jughead can't take it so he brings it to sabrina the teenage witch asking her to bring the dog back to life. she does, the dog comes back wrong, bites jughead, and he starts infecting everybody.



the comic is played completely straight, has better characterization than the walking dead, and way way better art

here is archie killing his dad with a shovel


there is stuff with dogs in it that made me cry

I was ready for an ironic post but drat that last panel is better than anything TWD ever did in the comics

Yeah, adapting Preacher was always going to be kind of tricky, because in comics you can just sort of get away with more...outlandish things...than you really can in real life. At least they are putting effort into giving this adaptation it's own identity, but by the end of the Pilot, I didn't feel like they got the "mood" that Preacher has. Which is a real shame because they even got the great Willie Nelson version of "It Was the Time of the Preacher" for the start.

Maybe the second episode will be easier to enjoy now that I've already gotten gobsmacked by all the changes.

To be fair, Cassidy already made a joke about priests molesting kids.

I thought the sequence with arts and crafts was one of the funniest parts of it so far. You know at the end that the little girl's going to grow up and burn her boyfriend's house down when she catches him cheating on her, and he'll never see it coming.

I'm starting to dig it. It still feels a bit cringy doing the whole, "Shucks, gotta help out this town full of misfits!" thing but I'm interested in the characters, I like Jesse and Cassidy and the Church scene was great and funny.

Also the Saint scene at the beginign was loving awesome.

It's not the comic Preacher and it was never going to be but the bromance between Jesse and Cass is there and that's the heart of the books anyway.

I thought it was pretty good, but I never read or knew about our heard of the comic strip because I'm an adult. The guy who plays the preacher is pretty sexy.

Dude looks kinda like a young Jonathan Frakes.


I have also never been more aroused watching a woman insert an ear of corn into a man.

Dominic Cooper and Ruth Nega play a King and Queen in the absolutely awful Warcraft film that just came out. Cooper totally phones it in and Nega has about one minute of total screen time.

I bet that the Ratchet and Clank movie that nobody noticed the release of was the best movie of the year despite being a video game movie. Never got a chance to see it though. Got pulled pretty quick.

So many dorks I know are so stoked for the Warcraft movie and I'm just like ?????

The sequence in the airplane was really baffling and weird but my favorite part of that episode may have been the guy drizzling holy water on Cassidy to absolutely no effect.

I do like the way the comic ends. That particular showdown is really interesting, because you'd really think that of all his fights, this would be the one that gives Jesse trouble. He's a Marty Stu but it's a great fight, Jesse using brains to overcome superior brawn. Blinding Cassidy was especially neat I thought, given that his eyes were a big mystery and character feature.

Fuckin' thing sucked.

I mean, it was kinda okay at parts but it was like a fuckin' Looney Tunes cartoon or some poo poo. Tonally it was flip flopping so violently I thought my neck was going to snap off. Jesse's actor mumbles everything, Tulip makes no sense, Cassidy's okay.

seth rogan stop ruining comic book franchises you fat gently caress

Preacher was dope and deserved better. Only good part was Arseface's mask thingy looks right.

I wanna see what seth Rogan does with Sandman
