Dillon's striking images were essential to the rise of the DC Vertigo name plate. 
Steve Dillon, Comic Artist Who Helped Create ‘Preacher,’ Dies at 54

Follows the adventures of a Texas preacher whose body is inhabited by a mysterious entity that gives him supernatural powers.

Merging with a bizarre spiritual force called Genesis, Texan preacher Jesse Custer becomes completely disillusioned with the beliefs that he had dedicated his entire life to. Now possessing the power of "The Word," an ability to make people do whatever he says, Custer begins a violent and riotous journey across the country. Joined by his gun-toting girlfriend Tulip and the hard drinking Irish vampire Cassidy, the Preacher loses faith in both man and God as he witnesses dark atrocities and improbable calamities during his exploration of America.

In a world where supermen rule comics, video games, and film, we offer a list of graphic novels created by women that range from dark to whimsical and otherworldly to all too similar to everyday life.
