Looking for God in all the wrong places. God has quit mankind_but Reverend Jesse Custer doesn't intend to let him off the hook so easily. His search for the Almighty brings him to Arizona, where all he's looking forward to is a little quiet, hallucinogenic soul-searching to assist in his quest. What he finds is an armored regiment of U.S. Army, commandeered by Herr Starr, Allfather of the Grail, whose goal it is to capture Custer and his traveling companions-his girlfriend Tulip and best friend, the Irish vampire Cassidy-to aid in his own schemes and plans. Jesse may have the World at his command_but Starr has all the resources of the U.S. government at his-including its nuclear arsenal.
