Jason Aaron & Jason Latour “Southern Bastards vol 2: Gridiron” (Image, 2015)
Volume 1 introduced us to Craw County, Alabama & the people who live there. It was a tragedy in the true sense of the word. Now with Volume 2, the Jasons are telling us about the other side of that initial story: this is the Origin of Coach Boss.
The writing and the art are just as good as in the first volume. But it didn’t capture me the same way. Perhaps I just wasn’t ready for an attempted redemption of Coach Boss (or at least a humanization).
Still, I’m interested in the overall story of the county, & am looking forward to seeing what will happen in the next arc.
