“The Bayou is a bad place. Ain’t nuthin’ good ever happened around there.”

“As hypnotic as it is unsettling.” – WIRED

If Pan’s Labyrinth took place in the South during the 1930’s, you’d have Bayou.  I wanted to describe Bayou as Pan’s Labyrinth meets Birth of a Nation, but Birth of a Nation romanticized racism and race related violence.  (Not to mention B.O.A.N. was a terrible film and Bayou is anything but terrible).  Bayou on the other hand, deals with this dark history of America, head on and at the same time gives us the fantasy to escape it.

Bayou Vol. 1 & 2 available for check out.
