    Comic Bastards - Zeb Larson Oct 2, 2017

    Southern Bastards is not Walking Tall, because the rot that exists in Craw County isn't just because some bad guy moved into town and nobody's gotten rid of him yet. There's something deeper in the culture of this place that produces bad men, and there's a strikingly thin line between the bad men and the Tubbs who give out nickel beatings to people who deserve them. I'm curious to see exactly how that tension is developed, especially given all of the Rubicon imagery we're treated to. Read Full Review

    This issue is the beginning of the end, and its what most readers have probably been waiting for from this story. With Roberta just getting started, we still have plenty of loose ends to tie off, and story to tell. This was one of the better issues in a cant-miss series. Read Full Review

    Southern Bastards continues to be an amazing comic.  It may not have the most consistent schedule, but there has never been a bad issue in this series. This issue is definitely a must have because Roberta's quest for vengeance seems to be ramping up, and it is not to be missed.

    A writer and artist shake up, but no drop in quality as we got a singular character focus on Roberta as she starts her revenge in earnest. Things are rough in Craw County, and now that Roberta has truly committed to the cause, it's going to get much worse. Read Full Review
