    About “Jason Aaron Jason Latour Chris Brunner

    1. Jason Aaron Jason Latour Chris Brunner says:

      Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi autobiographical novel The Short Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.Aaron s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight page Wolverine back up story script The story, which was published in Wolverine 175 June 2002 , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the second time he broke into the industry.Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC Vertigo.In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008 His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie in to the company wide crossover storyline along with a Secret Invasion with David Lapham in 2009.In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker s Asylum.After a 4 issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X Men Origins Wolverine Aaron commented, With Wolverine Weapon X we ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre, In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine He followed this with his current run on Thor God of Thunder.

    1. I think I am in love with Jason Aaron as he just keeps giving me these series I want to swoon over, not least because all the series I have fallen in double love have been made out of the subjects I personally do not have much interest in. And still, oh boy lusty still.Aaron returns with the third volume of Southern Bastards, and does it with a gory, brutal big bang that should not only appeal to everyone who has a thing towards everything southern, but also a thing towards american football. I [...]

    2. Almost every time they’ve played each other the Craw County Runnin’ Rebs have beaten their rivals, the Wetumpka County Warriors, thanks in part to Coach Big, the Rebs’ long-time defensive coordinator. Following the brutal murder of Earl Tubb on the orders of Coach Boss, Big is ashamed to be in league with Boss and chosen suicide. Now it’s homecoming week and once more it’s the Rebs vs the Warriors - and, denied Big’s knowledge and experience, Coach Boss is due a reckoning… in more [...]

    3. Bastards under the Christmas TreeJason Aaron excels at writing two kinds of stories: bombastic and gritty ones. The beginning of his Thor: God of Thunder run is Aaron at his bombastic best, I’d say, Scalped is Aaron at his gritty best. As the title suggests, Southern Bastards falls squarely into the gritty category.The first two volumes of Southern Bastards were good, but also quite a bit on the stagy, clichéd, predictable side. This third volume is where the story really comes to life for me [...]

    4. Southern Bastards recently was awarded an Eisner for Best Continuing Series, and it deserves it, but I want to warn you (or entice you?), it is violent. Coach Boss is the biggest Southern Bastard; he was the guy who oversaw the killing of Earl Tubb, which makes defensive coach Big feel bad enough to kill himself, just in time for homecoming week and the big game between the Craw County Runnin’ Rebs and the Wetumpka County Warriors. Football continues to play a central role in the series. They [...]

    5. This series just never lets up, now does it? It stomps right ahead like a hulkish quarterback, red-eyed and unforgiving. Dispensing with the admittedly lazy simile for a moment, Jason Aaron's Southern Bastards is shaping up to become a modern comics classic, folks. I'm calling it right here, right now. Preacher, Y: The Last Man, Transmet, Sandman, it will literally belong in that same pantheon of creator owned series, mark my words. Later generations will return to it in eager anticipation, and [...]

    6. Christ this is a good comic. This volume expanded the universe some, setting up future volumes perfectly. One of the best I've ever read.

    7. As always, rude, crude, bloody and profane, yet very imaginative. This volume includes an extra treat in an afterward by co-author Jason Latour. Apparently written soon after the killings at Charleston's Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church Latour, a North Carolina native, addresses the subject of the Confederate battle flag, an image that appears frequently in this series. It's a fascinating, well-reasoned essay but the best part is its summation. This is what he has to say about Southern [...]

    8. Waiting more than a couple seconds after release date to read this was a mistake. Bring me volume four, and maybe some BBQ, then we can forget this ever happened and no one else gets hurt.Those are my terms.

    9. Živim uprkos zlim fakultetskim silama i dajem peticu onome što možda zaslužuje i šesticu. Dekadencija maksimus. Kad bi samo još brojevi izlazili češće nego jednom u nikad, eh, nada umire poslednja.5

    10. Whew, Jason Aaron sure writes the hell out of this volume. We get to see more depth from other characters such as Sheriff Hardy, Roberta Tubb, Tad Ledbetter, Esaw Goings, Materhead, and Boone, a total righteous badass. Craw County itself grows as well, like both a collective twisted character and background presence of tension and hate. Jason Latour's illustrations (and Chris Brunner's in Issue 12) are fucking awesome as usual, rough and scary and beautiful. I gotta say, I read this in about an [...]

    11. Man, I love this comic. It's so raw and unforgiving and GOOD. Latours art is perfect for it, because his style isn't necessarily always pretty to look at, but that makes it a perfect fit for a comic set in the south of America.

    12. Bullet Review:Very high 4 stars, hot DAMN am I loving this series! Robert Tubbs the sheriff - so many fun characters and I can just imagine the sh!t hitting the fan rather soon. Just wish Aaron and Latour wouldn't keep dragging it out.

    13. Southern Bastards just keeps being brilliant and extremely brutal. Can't wait for the next volume, where hopefully Roberta Tubb will finally start to kill off some of those evil Craw County bastards.

    14. Southern Bastards Volume 3 fleshes out the other characters in the story, and by doing so paints an expanded picture of the ugliness and grit of Craw County. Euless Boss may be a main player of the town, but he doesn't own the place. After all, he's just one tough evil coach.Aaron has set all the chess pieces in Southern Bastards Homecoming. I love to see how things will go down with these bastards, but honestly I'd be more than satisfied with just seeing Boss being brutally murdered.

    15. Now this is what I'm talking about. Nice big jump in quality and gives us characters we can love and hate. You get the individual personalities of a ton of characters here and when you see inside their mind, their life, you really get to know them. The amazing thing is each character feels vastly different, even more so the voices inside their heads give them distinct personalities. I truly thought this was near perfect except I was sadden by the end, because I felt they could have progressed he [...]

    16. Doesn't matter who you are or what you do in Craw County but it always ties back to football somehow.Homecoming to me wasn't as intense as the previous two volumes. Still enjoyable though.Through a number of backstories, we get a sense of the amount of hatred harbored towards the coach.Does this mean Coach Boss' days are numbered?

    17. I really dig the grit and gristle of this series; there is nothing polite about it which makes it a refreshing alternative to many mainstream series. I also like how the story uses sports (football specifically) as a metaphor for all that is terrible and disturbing in North America. Usually sports in literature is used as a metaphor for hope and togetherness, but not in this series, now way. Political corruption, dishonesty, abuse of democracy it's all football in Southern Bastards.4/5

    18. Southern corruption, sleaze, squalour and all ugy stuff down under the Mason-Dixon line is Aaron's forte and it shows. The pigeons are back to roost and the coach is still holding the corrupt horrorshow together.

    19. Por algo Aaron es mi guionista favorito del momento.Está haciendo lo mismo que en Scalped. Cada presentación de nuevos personajes es brutal, los diálogos, el monólogo interior, sus miserias, su papel en este pueblo sureño lleno de viejas disputas del pasado y culpabilidad.Y fútbol americano.Qué decir del arte de Latour, brutal como en los anteriores volúmenes, con esos colores cálidos que nos transportan al sureño condado de Craw.Paletos Cabrones puede ser la sucesora de Scalped como o [...]

    20. If you are a fan of crime/noir, and especially if you are also a fan of graphic novels/comics, this series is a must read. Bring on the darkness! And this volume does that on multiple levels. We are now in for the long haul as each chapter lays into the war within another character, all lining up to take on Coach Boss. With the first read, and maybe I was going a bit too fast, it seemed we were losing some focus by going into all these characters. Volume 1 was focused on Earl taking on Coach. Vo [...]

    21. I like this series more with every volume.Volume 3 is just the Jasons exploring various characters in the deeply resonant world they've built, putting the pieces on the board for the looming v4 (?) confrontation (although there are so many players now that it's shaping up to be a battle royale).--Issue 1 features the corrupt county sheriff, chafing under the boot of Coach Boss and grieving for the man he could have been. --Issue 2 peeks at Esaw, Boss's stupid, dangerous, sadistic chief goon. A c [...]

    22. This series just gets better and better. The first two arcs were really good and this one is awesome. Each issue is focused on a particular character, some you already know, some you don't, leading towards the big game between Craw county and their arch-ennemies and the arrival of Earl Tubbs'daughter. Something is boiling down there and it's gonna be messy when it explodes

    23. I just enjoy Southern Bastards so much. I love how slow it is and the atmosphere, that's the heart of the whole thing. The comic makes you feel sick and tired and it's pure perfection in that sense. It's just nasty and so so good. In this third part we mostly see other characters and how they relate to Tubb and more than anything, the history behind everything in glimpses. Perhaps I would've liked longer story lines in this, but these shorties are great too, since they all add up. The whole Craw [...]

    24. Southern Bastards unexpectedly became a series that I look forward to reading when it becomes available to me. Yes, it's exaggerated, and includes stereotypes about the south. However, both Jason Aaron and Jason Latour are passionate about the project, as proud Southerners themselves, and as such are invested in portraying the things that they're proud of about the culture of the South, as well as the complexity and ugliness, all with comic book flair that includes dark humor and violence. This [...]

    25. I loved issues in Scalped where the world and/or side characters get fleshed out and that is what this volume did exceptionally well. Other than the issue about the child in a coma which I felt like I didn't understand the significance of. Each one of these gave an enticing look into both existing characters and where the series will go and I can't wait read to read more and get lost in this terrible and real feeling world again.

    26. This one sort of breaks the pace of the previous two volumes. Each chapter focuses on a specific character as opposed to the story as a whole. At the start this disappointed me, since I was hoping to see what happens with Tubb's daughter. By the end I felt pretty good about all this and it certainly made me dislike the gross ass villains even more!

    27. An interesting graphic novel series produced by a couple of guys who both love the South and are very concerned about the South. The graphics are pretty good and do add to the plot. The story threatens to descend into stereotypes talking about well traveled plot, but is well enough done, that it is worth the read. Like most modern graphic novels it is very much a series that is only for adults.
