Ivan Brandon, Jason Latour, Greg Hinkle and Matthew Wilson's Black Cloud is a world where dreams and stories are another plane of existence, and for the right price there's one woman who get you in. While the series itself works in more mature themes of homelessness, loneliness and addiction, Fried Pie Con has a variant cover featuring one of the denizens of these worlds looking extra cute, and ComicsAlliance has the exclusive cover reveal.

Strip Panel Naked: Flirting With Danger In Latour, Brunner And Renzi’s ‘Loose Ends’


I loved every page of the first issue of Jason Latour, Chris Brunner and Rico Renzi's Loose Ends. There was a whole load of storytelling tricks and techniques to unpack, but I want to look at one that has sprung up before with Jason Latour in Southern Bastards, and it's the use of red throughout. This time coloured by Renzi, he starts to drop a very saturated red tone in various stages of the story.

Cast Party: Who Should Star in a ‘Southern Bastards’ TV Series?


This week, we're casting an imaginary TV series based on the Image Comics series Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour.

Southern Bastards would make a fantastic prestige drama for HBO, Netflix, or wherever. It has discrete storylines, but the underlying mysteries are unspooled at a very gradual pace. Film it down in Alabama, and fill the cast with as many craggy old character actors as you can find.

‘Southern Bastards’ Responds To Online Harassment With Charity Variant Cover


Online harassment has been a growing problem for quite a while now. Just last night, acclaimed comics colorist Jordie Bellaire announced that she's leaving Twitter because of it, and only a couple of months ago, writer Chelsea Cain was similarly forced off Twitter after the cover by Joelle Jones on their final issue of Mockingbird featured the character in a T-shirt that read "Ask me about my feminist agenda," inspiring a tidal wave of sexist harassment.

The creators behind Southern Bastards, Jason Latour and Jason Aaron, are responding with a variant cover, proceeds of which will be split between the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU.

Strip Panel Naked: The Craw County Red Of ‘Southern Bastards’


The latest issue of Southern Bastards was released last week, and we’re finally able to get back into the world of Craw County. Reading Southern Bastards always brings one thing to mind; it’s something you tend to find on every cover, and the whole interior of the book is drenched in it: red. Artist Jason Latour links so much of this story with red, and turn any page and you can see how heavy an influence it has on the palette.

ICYMI: Donald Trump Is MODOK On Spider-Gwen’s Earth


Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi's Spider-Gwen has been one of Marvel Comics' most ceaselessly inventive and exciting properties since the character first debuted in what was meant to be a one-off starring role. Since then, we've been followed Gwen Stacy's ongoing adventures as Spider-Woman, and encountered her world's versions of Captain America, Daredevil and The Punisher --- but there's still a hankering to learn more about this universe.

This week's Spider-Gwen Annual #1 scratches that itch as Latour explores the larger world of Earth-65 with stories featuring Koala Kommander, She-Hulk as a pro wrestler, and a terrifying alternate version of Donald Trump who is even more dangerous and has even tinier hands.
