'Southern Bastards' Comic And The Grit Of The American South
It’s easy to fall back on stereotypes when you describe the American South, but the creators of the comic series “Southern Bastards” show there’s more to Southern identity than what meets the eye. The series takes place in Craw County, Alabama where football is religion and the head football coach controls the town. The third volume comes out today.
We speak with creators Jason Aaron and Jason LaTour about how they depict the South in the comic series and their love-hate relationship with their hometowns.
