  3. #NetHeads #CultRef #PoundOfFlesh

    We get the commonly used term “pound of flesh” mostly from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice

    This is the title of the first quarto:


    The most excellent History of the Merchant of Venice. With the extreme cruelty of Shylock the Jew towards the said Merchant

    At the time it was played as a comedy. But there is some serious cultural critique that goes on, that if-not-by a comedy, would have gotten Shakespeare into a lot of trouble.

    The story is about Antonio who gets a loan from Shylock upon one condition: if Antonio is unable to repay it at the specified date, Shylock may take a pound of Antonio’s flesh.

  10. Southern Bastards Volume 01 - Review

    SOUTHERN BASTARDS TP VOL 01 HERE WAS A MAN (MR)
    IMAGE COMICS
    (W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) Jason Latour
    Welcome to Craw County, Alabama, home of Boss BBQ, the state champion Runnin’ Rebs football team…and more bastards than you’ve ever seen. When you’re an angry old man like Earl Tubb, the only way to survive a place like this…is to carry a really big stick.

    Collects SOUTHERN BASTARDS #1-4


    WOW! Wow. Jason Aaron is a genius. Working in a comic book shop, I tell customers on a daily basis, “I’ve yet to read anything by Jason Aaron that I didn’t love.” I don’t just love Southern Bastards, I f*$&ing adore it!

    Jason Aaron and Jason Latour have worked together on previous titles (Wolverine and Scalped), but they are a finely tuned team on Southern Bastards. The book has a color palette similar to that of Italian comic book artist Francesco Francavilla (Afterlife With Archie). Though Latour’s pencils and inks have an embellished-yet-unfinished feel, like unto those of Brazilian comic book artist Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire). Despite the similarities to his contemporaries, Latour brings some of the most vile and imaginable characters to life in pages that feel wholly new and original.

    Southern Bastards Volume 01 is Friday Night Lights meets Walking Tall meets Full Metal Jacket (which was written by Aaron’s cousin Gustav Hasford). Fans of Aaron’s Scalped will fall into this book like ice cubes into sweet tea.
