Roll Tide

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.
