After the surprised in volume 1 of the series Southern Bastards, this book takes an unexpected turn by becoming the Coach's story. Which won't surprise you if you completed volume 1. It's again a thrilling, violent, and unbelievable book that shows the sordid underbelly of the deep south, especially in a place where football of all things is their religion. I'm really appreciating this series for the deep character development, and although the story doesn't shy from the gore and the violence (and at least one panel that's sexually explicit), the illustrations do a remarkable job of adding to the story. Most panels have a story going on in the back as well as the front of the reader's mind, and the facial expressions are always incredibly realistic. This has surprised me by being such a good read in my opinion.
