Director’s Commentary – Aaron & Latour on Southern Bastards!

by Chris Thompson

With Jason Aaron & Jason Latour …
 
In the wake of last week’s landmark Episode 200 (which you can still listen to here), and to coincide with the release of the latest Southern Bastards collection, here is our commentary with Jason Aaron & Jason Latour discussing Southern Bastards Volume 1.
 
The pair delve into their creative process and how the book came to be – sharing stories, revealing secrets, and giving the kind of insight you couldn’t get anywhere else. It’s no wonder this book is consistently praised and nominated for the upcoming Eisner Awards.
