SOUTHERN BASTARDS – Early Praise & Excitement For New Crime Series

tumblr_mziejs4s2E1syn0mbo1_1280.png

Welcome to Craw County, Alabama: breeding ground for bastards and the setting of Jason Aaron (Scalped, Wolverine, The X-Men, Thor: God of Thunder) and Jason Latour’s (​Loose Ends, Wolverine & The X-Men, Django Unchained) new ongoing crime series SOUTHERN BASTARDS. Comic creators and critics everywhere have already dubbed this forthcoming crime series a must-read. SOUTHERN BASTARDS #1 arrives in stores on 4/30 and is available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code FEB140475.

Advance praise for SOUTHERN BASTARDS:

Jason Aaron and Jason Latour’s Southern Bastards #1 was exactly the kind of pulp goodness I live for.”
—Ed Brubaker (FATALE, Captain America)

Can I just take a second to recommend Southern Bastards by the mighty Jason Aaron? Literally the best book I’ve read this month. Order!” —Mark Millar (STARLIGHT, JUPITER’S LEGACY, Kick-Ass)

Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour made me both terrified and homesick. Fantastic start, boys.
—Matt Fraction (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye)

Southern Bastards is perfection. There’s this great, slow menace to it. Southern Bastards #1 is a perfect comic for you if you like to read… anything.” —Scott Snyder (WYTCHES, Batman)

You need Southern Bastards. Jason Aaron is back to southern-fried grit and Jason Latour is showing he’s one of the best cartoonists of our generation.”
—Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, Punisher)

The gushing about Southern Bastards is completely on point. Jason Aaron nails it (as usual), but Jason Latour is the rocketship here.
—Jonathan Hickman (EAST OF WEST, Avengers)

This series both pokes fun at and honors their shared roots. Aaron’s gritty noir storytelling blends perfectly with Latour’s sharp artwork, creating the ideal setting for a mesmerizing, down home crime story.
—Comic Book Resources

Southern Bastards #1 is an engrossing first issue, an unnerving introduction to what looks to be dark, violent, and sad. In other words, exactly what you want Aaron and Latour to be doing. A proper Southern Gothic hiding in the skin of a trash genre, Southern Bastards is a must-read.
—ComicsAlliance

“Southern Bastards is totally worthy of insane hype. This is a book crafted with care on every level. It’s poignant and brutal. It’s over the top in all the right ways and completely subdued at the same time. It’s a beautiful dance in pacing that effortlessly shows how comics should be and need to be done.”
—Bloody Disgusting

Metal Geeks Episode 19: D23 Geekery and Photo Gallery

19 website

Check out the Photo Gallery for the 2013 D23 Expo and Disneyland trip!

Welcome to episode 19 of the Metal Geeks Podcast, brought to you by Ultness.com. We have something special for this episode. So special, in fact, that we had to split it into two different episodes. Cary Metal Geek has just returned from a week long jaunt to California where he and the missus spent a week playing at Disneyland, visiting the D23 expo, seeing footage from some upcoming Marvel movies, and attending live tapings of both Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live. There was a lot to talk about, and we start the episode talking about what comics we have been reading, and go into our review of the Wolverine movie. 

During the second part of the episode, we play some interviews that Cary Metal Geek was able to get at D23 Expo with some developers from Disney Interactive, Sega, Capcom and Harmonix and even a Disney Imagineer.

Thank you guys for tuning into this very special episode, and sometime soon, we have also released a special Bonus episode recorded live from Anaheim with Kimmu Metal Geek, as Cary and Kimmu discuss the week’s events, and go into depth right after a day spent at the D23 expo.

THOR: God of Thunder Preview #1


First things first. Prior to making it onto the big screen, I was never a fan of THOR. For me, he had always been cheesy and down right lame. I always felt; oh damn it…this guy is chasing me from the interest of this story, HULK SMASH!  That was then…this is (Marvel)NOW!

In just four pages this preview has me wanting more. Why? See the last page of this preview.  \m/[>.<]\m/
