AMC has released the first (very brief) teaser trailer for Preacher, based on the acclaimed DC/Vertigo series from writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon.

Apparently, a full trailer will debut on Sunday during The Walking Dead.

You can check it out below.

Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Agent Carter's Dominic Cooper), a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. baddie Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God.

Preacher ran for 66 issues (with some supplemental material as well) from 1995 until 2000. In addition to Ennis and Dillon, it featured memorable work from cover artist Glenn Fabry and colorists Matt Hollingsworth and Pamela Rambo. The series also had a sharp eye for pop culture references, bringing figures like John Wayne and comedian Bill Hicks into the story.
