NEW STORY ARC! "GUT CHECK": Part One-Coach Boss holds sway over Craw County for one reason: he wins football games. But after the biggest, ugliest loss of his career, the coach must become more of a criminal than ever before, if he's gonna keep ahead of his enemies. Enemies like Roberta Tubb, who's come to town with a machine gun and some serious questions about how her daddy died. The 2015 Harvey Award-winning (Best New Series) and 2016 Eisner Award-winning (Best Continuing Series) southern-fried crime comic by JASON AARON & JASON LATOUR is back for another round of football, BBQ, and bloodshed!

    Southern Bastards is back and we could not be more happy about that. There seems to be no refuge for Coach Boss as things go from worst to even more worse and the vultures from all walks of life have began to circle. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Joe Ryan Nov 2, 2016

    I love this series, and like Roberta Tubbs, I am gritting my teeth and trying to stay patient. I want to know what happens. I want to know the final score. Will a man who's not used to losing continue to do so? Will he have to cheat to win? Is he paying too much attention to football and not enough to his other opponents? You have to wonder if Coach Boss finally has some things that he can't beat, both on and off the field. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 3, 2016

    All that being said, issue #15 is very much geared to those reared on sports fandom, which runs the risk of limiting the impact from reader to reader. It's there that Jason Latour again proves integral, as whether you're a football fan or not, you'll be hard-pressed to tear your eyes away from his deliciously seedy world. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Robert Larson Nov 2, 2016

    As Boss breaks his cardinal rule and brings the gangster persona into his football life, it seems like Craw County is in store for a genuine bloodbath. I don't think Craw is unique for having football coaches that fight dirty; will he invite retaliation with this latest move? I'm glad to have this series back, and finally delivering some goods again. Read Full Review
