    Southern Bastards continues to be a fascinating animal, as writer Jason Aaron and artist Jason Latour not only continue to show the rest of the industry where the high bar truly rests, but they do so without giving us a single likable character in the bunch. Read Full Review

    Southern Bastards returns in a climate that makes its characters a lot less obscure feeling than they might have once felt before. The quality of the book has not changed though as this brutal and thrilling book continues to hit all the narrative notes, inching us closer to something big going down in Craw County.

    Southern Bastards #17 is a reminder of just how good this book can be, which is much needed following its lengthy delay. Giving us some fabulous developments, the creative team continue to show just how far Coach Boss is willing to go to keep his team on top, with there being more than a few unexpected twists along the way.

    Comic Bastards - Robert Larson Aug 23, 2017

    I also won't lie, I've been excited for this book to come back because of the news. Southern Bastards is not a series that has been shy about tackling politics, and unless you've been under a rock, the Old South is back in the news again. Of course, this particular issue can't hope to tackle what happened in Charlottesville; the events are less than a week old. But Latour and Aaron are smart men, and I imagine there's an opportunity to talk about statues or Robert E. Lee or the Stars and Bars, and why these symbols and monuments, built decades after the war's end have this continuing significance to angry white men today. Read Full Review
