Story-wise, there's no reason for it to be.

Art-wise, there is- the first part's not drawn by the regular team.

The division between it and the second feels natural; they're two wholes that make one.

The first opened with a title page like a pre-opening credits scene.

It's a neatly compressed scene. )

Of all the absurdist foes the Doom Patrol faced during Grant Morrison's run, my favourite without question is the abstract champion of nonsense Mr. Nobody, not the least because his origin is among the strangest you'll find in a mainstream comic.

In PREACHER: THE STORY OF YOU-KNOW-WHO, Garth Ennis gave the origin story of Arseface. It is one of the few elements of PREACHER that date the series. (Another: In PREACHER #31, a flashback of Jesse shows he got to see Bill Hicks perform live and talk to him in person.) If they ever get around to adapting PREACHER as a movie or cable series, Arseface's origin will have to be updated, unless the movie/series is actually set in the mid to late 1990s.
In a very weird way, the Arseface origin story appears to be Garth Ennis' take on Dan Savage's "It Gets Better Project" about 15 years before the "It Gets Beter Project."
11 pages of a 50 page story after the cut. Garth Ennis wrote it, so the F-word and other curses are used a lot. The art is by Richard Case.
