One thing that I am never quite clear on in stories like this. What exactly happens when you kill dead people/immortals in the afterlife. Like is there an after, afterlife?

I suppose that's a question that would be difficult to answer in a compelling way in stories, which is probably why nobody really tries all that much. Would the main theory be that in the Preacher narrative, that it just wipes out any existence and/or trace of souls altogether?

It's just important to his role that the Saint can kill pretty much anything with his revolvers, men, angels, Satan and otherwise.

Except Cassidy. Ennis never did explain that. Maybe because, as a vampire, he's already dead?

I've just always assumed that he didn't know Cassidy was a vampire, so didn't aim for something that would kill him. He assumed a kill shot that'd kill a human would do.

As I understand it, Ennis has explained that he just hadn't nailed down what the Saint's powers were yet.

The Brothers Lionheart kind of deals with that in a weird sort of way (spoilers obviously).

I remember South Park after Satan killed Saddam Hussein (who he was in romantic relationship with) Saddam respawned in Hell: "Where was I gonna go, Detroit?"

Well... in Dragonball, they are still there but are just "dead"...

And the moral of the story is: never be rude to someone who's just unlocked god mode.

Over the top monstrous looks for Satan never do anything for me, stuff like Lucifer in Sandman is more effective IMO.

It can be done well; but then it must be truly horrendous, not just a bad Dungeons'n'Dragons take on Pan/Exu/etc. I'm thinking of the Devil in Neil Gaiman's The Price (art by Michael Zulli):

Agreed. He looks like the South Park version of Satan.

The devil getting shot is one of my all-time favourite moments in Preacher. I love how quick his turnaround is from "GET THE FUCK OUT!" to "I am SO sorry!"

Makes me think of the moment in A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones when the spoiler gives spoiler full command of spoiler, and then tries to take their spoilers. If, as part of your bargain, you've just gave'em tremendous power, you have to keep in mind that you're in no position to bargain anymore…

The first time I read this, I did wonder why the Saint accepted the Angel of Death's apology but not the Devil's. Then I found myself staring down the barrels of two Walker Colt revolvers and said, "...Question withdrawn." :-)

The Devil didn't apologize; he said he didn't mean it, which isn't true. The Angel did apologize and said what the Saint believed to be true: that the Saint could do whatever he wanted.
