Southern Bastards Vol 1 by Jason Aaron and Jason LaTour:
I don't do reviews often. Something has to really compel me to sit down and take the time to express it here. And for the most part, I'm a Jason Aaron fan. Scalped was a one-of-a-kind series. But I've read some of his Marvel work and have been pretty underwhelmed. My feeling is that his work shines when he is doing creator-owned stuff that is near-and-dear to his heart. Which is why I am excited to have picked up Southern Bastards. Here we see what Aaron does best: snappy, noire dialogue with genuine Southern dialect, and a crisp, simple plot with a few pleasant surprises.
But the true superstar of Southern Bastards is Jason Latour. Comics are riddled with overdrawing cartoonists that use a million lines to capture a gesture. These artists make up the glut of comic shelves these days, particularly super-hero books. Latour is a beautiful exception. With a few meaningful lines he deftly communicates character, expression, gesture and motion. He does with one or two strokes what most super-hero cartoonists don’t accomplish in an entire book. His line work is visceral, stylized and confident. And his "painting" of the work blows my mind: subtle, ragged and brutal, always married to the art and text in a seamless and unique way. Clearly, Latour is having a ball illustrating this book. His work in Southern Bastards is better than 95% of the work being done in mainstream comics, and I can't wait to see what he (and Aaron) comes up with next.

4.0 out of 5 stars You're giving them the eternal right to do the same damn thing to any one of you! 2 May 2016

Walking Tall... Reading this felt like I was watching a movie... maybe a Tarantino. I don't feel it is overly original and, yet, the internal dialogue, artwork, and grit just caught me and I've already ordered the second and third book.

Here was a man who came to town. Here was a righteous man beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. And, yes, he does strike down upon them with great vengeance and furious anger.

5.0 out of 5 stars "See back then places like New York were for superheroes." 6 May 2015
By Zac Hanscom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Southern Bastards, Volume 1: Here Was a Man eats, breathes, and sleeps the dirty grit of the South. It's frightening in a way I really haven't seen in any other comic. Some comics frighten you with fantasy; some frighten you with the truth. Southern Bastards frightens you with the truth. Here Was a Man tells the story of Earl Tubb, an ageing former defensive end returning to his birthplace of Craw County, home of the five-time State 4A Football Champions, the Runnin' Rebs. He confronts his past and the present, both of which are just terrible.

Southern Bastards makes me want to take a drive through the South, with its ribs and its sweet tea. It's awful. Earl Tubb is a great character, a former Marine, the son of the violent sheriff of Craw County who everybody hated. The comic is a great mystery, with only part of the story being revealed at a time. Earl's father carried a stick, and now Earl carries a stick of his own. Sure, a Southern man with a stick has been done before, but never this well. I can't wait to read Volume 2 when it comes out. *****

I love this book. Southern Bastards is fantastic. This volume provides great art, a compelling story, and a fantastic twist. If you are familiar with Jason Aaron's "Scalped" series, this is somewhat like that (at least at first), but set in the deep south. Organized crime, very little in terms of law enforcement, returning local mixes it up in his old stomping grounds. It is violent and exciting and somewhat heart-wrenching. Aaron's strength in both books is his ability to capture the ethos of a culture through over exaggerated stereotypes that are tempered with a lot of human elements. Southern Bastards most certainly sets itself apart and moves in a different direction though, so it brings a lot of new elements to the table. I would HIGHLY recommend this book and can't wait for more Southern Bastards.

Rural neo-noir set in Alabama? Written by a native? OH DEAR GOD YES!
Does a fantastic job of characterizing the many of the worst aspect of rural Alabama without descending into stereotypes.
One of my favorite things I've read in a long time.
