A Boy Named Sue: Father-Son Relationships in the Comics of Jason Aaron

bastards

You don't have to look too hard to see the prevalence of difficult father-son relationships in the work of Jason Aaron. In Scalped with R.M. Guera, Dashiell Bad Horse was adrift in a sea of father figures, unable to choose his own path and incapable of avoiding the same fates that befell the father who left him. In 2014, Aaron launched Southern Bastards with Jason Latour, about a conflicted man who returns to the home of his dead father, a legendary lawman; and Men of Wrath with Ron Garney, is about a father-to-be on the run from his own dad, a hired killer.

Despite the prevalence of the topic in comics, Aaron has carved out his own niche when it comes to father-son relationships, with an unflinching perspective that rings truer than most.

Jason Aaron & Ron Garney Announce Creator-Owned ‘Men Of Wrath’ Through Marvel’s Icon Imprint

Set in the South, the story is described by Aaron as an examination of a cycle of violence, from its beginning to its culmination as it's passed down through a family to "the worst of the bunch."
