Preacher Special Tall in the Saddle (2000)
WRITTEN BY GARTH ENNIS; ART BY STEVE DILLON AND JOHN MCCREA; PAINTED COVER BY GLENN FABRY
A one-shot revealing the early days in the romance of Jesse and Tulip. There was a time before Jesse Custer ever encountered the force known as Genesis, when he was a young man, stubborn and reckless and madly in love with the his pistol-packin' sweetheart, Tulip O'Hare. Theirs was a wild love, and their adventures even wilder, as seen in PREACHER: TALL IN THE SADDLE, a VERTIGO Prestige one-shot. Written and pencilled by PREACHER co-creators Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon (with inks by HITMAN's John McCrea and a painted cover by Glenn Fabry), TALL IN THE SPECIAL finds Jesse and Tulip tasting the outlaw life and getting into some deep trouble.
When our heroes lose a trailer-load of stolen cars in a high-speed chase, their none-too-happy employer offers them a chance to make amends: drive a shipment of stolen horses to a slaughterhouse. Jesse's refusal sets the stage for a high noon showdown ? one that pits them against ruthless horse-thieves, vicious arms dealers, and a criminal enterprise more heinous than they ever could have imagined!
