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

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
