Southern Bastards, Issue #16 is the second issue in the "Gut Check" arc, in which the Craw County Runnin' Rebs football team has lost two games in a row. Coach Boss aims to make sure there isn't a third loss. He does this by going to the home of the star running back of the Locust Fork Super Bolts, Theron Goode, aiming to put a beating on him. Things go south in more than one way.
Southern Bastards is the shit. It's one of the first comics I started reading every month it comes out, along with Velvet, Saga, and Lazarus. I came to like the genre that now I read 40 or so comics every month they come out. Some come out every month come hell or high water, and some come out more rarely, like Southern Bastards. Roberta Tubbs isn't in this issue, and I wonder if she's been put on the back burner a little too much for my taste. The series is set to run 60 issues or so, and there's plenty of time for her to get into the picture.
