When Redneck Revealed it was in the Same World as Southern Bastards

It looks like we’ve got a crossover between two Image Comic series. The below scene appears in Redneck #9. That series by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe involves small town Vampires. Apparently they live pretty close to the fictional Craw County that’s the location of Jason Aaron and Jason Latour‘s Southern Bastards. That series is about racism, corruption, and football in a small Southern town.

Is this where Coach Boss has been dumping his bodies? They get killed in Southern Bastards and disposed of in Redneck?

Will we get more of a crossover? How about a mash-up series! Southern Rednecks? Redneck Bastards? No matter how official it is, it’s a great nod and wink for comic fans.
