As it happens sometimes, I got sucked into this series and started volume 4 without stopping to write a review for volume 3. So, this is a combined review! Yay!

After getting away from his hillbilly, psycho family, out intrepid trio runs afoul of this ultra religious group after the Genesis inside Reverend Jessie. Cassidy gets captured so Jessie and Tulip go to rescue him. As the blood and guts in this series has never flinched before, these volumes are violent bloody messes. The Saint of Killers makes an appearance and that guy never leaves without a pile of bodies in his wake.

Volume 4 is a backstory set of Saint of Killers, Reverend Jessie’s family, and the kid now known affectionately as Arseface. Out of the three, Jessie’s family was the least interesting to me and the Saint of Killers was my “favorite” – in quotes because I enjoyed his story as much as one can enjoy a hate filled, ruthless killer. In my opinion, his story was the most compelling and I wish it was told last out of the three as Jessie’s family made the tail end of the volume drag on. I did enjoy, however, how the story of the Saint didn’t make me feel sympathy for him, just more informed.

I give both a strong 4 out of 5 but with all the back stories out of the way, I’m ready to get back to the action.
