Lots of racism and football in this book. I have a feeling those "good old boys" will be getting some payback though!

I love just about everything Jason Aaron. He can do a story, even one as cliched as this one, and still make it interesting and compelling. The plot, a man returns to his hometown, doesn't want to, settles a score, wrestles with demons, and does a smack-down on the good ol' boy establishment. Not terribly original. But he does it was such style, and his characters are so flawed yet intriguing. I enjoyed every word and every panel of this graphic novel. And Mr. Aaron, thank you for scaring me out of ever going to the deep South.

A pretty awesome first volume. An ode to the ugliness of the 'south'. Looking forward to more.

Local KC writer twists his Southern roots for a good ol football and crime story. Takes the readers expectations and spins it on their head. Seriously, quit reading this comment and go read this book. Then pick up the other three volumes currently in the catalog. Then all ten volumes of Scalped, another crime-fiction comic book by Jason Aaron.

A gritty, southern, football drama. For fans of Preacher.
