Life in the South is portrayed unflinchingly (Aaron is a Southerner so he can't be accused of Northern bias). Most significantly, Aaron is able to make the villain sympathetic at times, which is not an easy feat. The story moves along well and has set up for a much anticipated 3rd volume.
Visceral, bloody, nasty, and with not a few uses of racially insensitive language, Vol. 2 is another great read in this powerful series. I'm a fan, and I've already got @ImageComics sending me future issues via mail. While the collection does resemble the format of a book, with an arc that flows through the four issues, the best way to read Southern Bastards is monthly. Highly recommended. ****3/4
This TPB is an example of how to write characters.
How did these guys take a character, the villain who is an unrepentant sonnuva....well, you know,...and make him someone who isn't just sympathetic but someone you might have shed a tear over.
(Stop it, I'm not crying, you're crying)
Just one of the best things I have ever read, and I have read a lot of excellent things in my time on this earth.
