Product Description:

Earl Tubb is an angry old man with a very big stick. Euless Boss is a high school football coach with no more room in his office for trophies and no more room underneath the bleachers for burying bodies. And they're just two of the folks you'll meet in Castor County Alabama home of Boss BBQ the state champion Runnin' Rebs and more bastards than you've ever seen

'What does old Earl Tubb do when he returns home to Craw County Ala. only to find the place a veritable criminal fiefdom run by Euless Boss the local high school football coach? Why pick up the stick helpfully cleaved by lightning from a tree growing out of his daddy's grave and start meting out justice just like his father the old sheriff did. In the cleaning-up-the-dirty-old-town Southern-fried pulper writer Aaron (Scalped) and artist Jason Latour (Django Unchained) spread around no more story than is absolutely necessary and most of it involves people being at the wrong end of a stick baseball bat or even (in an early fight scene) a deep-fryer basket. Both Jasons hail from the South as they discuss in a particularly bighearted introduction and so likely feel unencumbered by concerns about overdosing on cliches. Thus the high-impact pages are strewn with bruising high school football sweet tea barbecue trucker caps and snarling rednecks. The story in which Tubb clobbers his way through throngs of underlings to get at Boss is no more complicated than a redo of Walking Tall. But there's a thread of something deeper bloodier and more resonant that often transcends the usual psychotic-redneck shtick aided in no small part by Latour's spare elegant art.' (Publishers Weekly).
