Southern Bastards, Volume 2: Gridiron
Aaron fleshes out Coach Boss by showing us the drive and relentlessness that defined his life, and some online reviewers have said that this makes him a "Sympathetic villain"....Considering what he did in Volume 1, I doubt anything could make him a sympathetic character. I did, however, feel a little bad that he had such a shitty life growing up. But he's still a ruthless, evil bastard....doing it all in the name of a love of football doesn't make him any less of a scumbag. I just hope this evil fucker gets his before the series ends.
SOUTHERN BASTARDS, VOLUME 2: GRIDIRON collects SOUTHERN BASTARDS #'s 5-8, complete with all covers and variants, and a small gallery of art and sketches by Jason Latour. This was a great volume, just not as great as the first. I really missed having a strong adversarial presence to counter Coach Boss, but it looks like the next volume will, fingers crossed, make up for that. Highly recommended.
