    Me too!! Been reading comics for over 35 years now, & though I'm a huge Marvel fan, I must admit, I've always loved DC comics Vertigo.. And Preacher was probably my favorite, other then Watchman. And obviously, the Saint of Killers blew my mind as a character, because I have him tattooed on my left arm. OK really though, the tattoo is a homage to comics as a whole; Spidey, Thor, Orion & Black Adam are bigger characters of mine (in that order) but I just settled on the Saint because he was less cartoony. :p

    Rogen got his hands on another comic book property after Green Hornet? That's funny.

    There is no way this is happening unless it's heavily edited to the point of being unrecognizable.

    My initial feeling was that it would be better off on HBO or Showtime...but the (fairly lenient) content restrictions of basic cable might actually benefit the work in the long run. A direct adaptation of everything from the page to the screen would never see the light of day, period.

    Of course they'll have to tone down the graphic violence and sex because that would push it into NC-17 territory but they can still do the basic story.

    So is Rogen going to star in it? He could make a good Cassidy. He's a bit bigger than I would picture Cassidy but personality wise he could do him.

    I can see some stuff edited due to limit in special effects but I can see them working around the story.
