Never mind Tuesday's reveal about Coulson, Clark Gregg says...
Could the Preacher comic books be coming to the small screen?
According to a report on badassdigest.com, AMC has ordered a pilot based on the comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The controversial comics follow Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher who struggles with his own demons, literally and figuratively.
