A moment of truth for Roberta Tubb. A moment of reckoning for Coach Boss.
Its been too long since the last issue of Southern Bastards but reading Southern Bastards #19 is like revisiting a friend, a gut-wrenching friend. For a few issues now, the series has been building up to the eventual meeting of Roberta and Coach Boss. This issue delivers and it’s as tense as we’d expect.
Much of the issue is focused on football, as one would expect, with things looking like they’re falling apart around Coach Boss. It’s an interesting read of what feels like a meltdown of the world around a character. Writer Jason Aaron and artist Jason Latour create chaos and tension that’s rarely felt in comics.
And like a good story, when you think things are written in stone the creators surprise you.
What feels like a story about Boss losing control is flipped on its head half way through. Or is it? That is open for debate due to the eventual meeting of Roberta and Boss. Again, keeping the reader on their toes.
Latour’s art is fantastic filled with emotion and brutality. Jared K. Fletcher‘s lettering also is something to notice. The series relies heavily on the lettering to convey the emotional situation. The art along with how words are emphasized helps make each moment.
Just when you think the series is going to go in one direction, Aaron and Latour shifts things and the end of this issue is one of those. Where things are going and how it’ll play out? We’ll have to wait and see and I’m counting down the days. Consistently one of the best comic series on the market.
