Garth Ennis's Cult Classic Comic Book, 'Preacher' Is Coming to AMC - Watch the Tralier

Preacher  is a live action comic based series made for AMC Network.  The supernatural comic is the creation of Garth Ennis, who is also the author of Punisher.

Jesse Custer is the main character, and he is a religiously conflicted preacher living in a small Texas town. It is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him supernatural powers that appear to have divine origins. Together with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, Jesse embarks on a journey to  find God. Preacher  is scheduled to debut on AMC  in mid-2016.
In the DC Database of comic characters, Jesse Custer is possessed by a powerful entity called "Genesis". He also has access to the word of God, which he can use to physically force people to do whatever he wants them to do through the power of God.
