The horrors Lee has to face are real racism hatred lynchings but they re also mythical magical The monsters are real some terrifying some helpful This is where if I m honest I kind of got lost in the swamp myself Jeremy Love says in an interview that the story leaves the real world and we then move to the world of Dixie Dixie is a strange Southern neverland that exists parallel to our own The world was formed from the blood war and strife that plagued the South The characters are re imagined images from the South like Cotton Eyed Joe Jim Crows that are downright scary birds Jubal the Bloodhound on a horse and Bayou himself a giant creature who lives in a shack I felt like I was set down in the middle of a fantasy land where I didn t know the rules or characters I found the mix of the realistic and fantastic confusing I m not sure why usually I m all for the combination but in this case it left me feeling off kilter Of course in the same interview he states one of the inspirations behind Bayou was Alice in Wonderland a story I m not too fond ofMaybe it was in part to the artwork which added another dimension to the story the visual aspect that is missing in novels The story is very violent which is to be expected based on the themes and the artwork is both beautiful and menacing magical and frightening The scenes of Lee swimming in the bayou are just eerieI can t say I enjoyed reading this but I am interested to see where it goes to maybe get my bearings in Dixie

I read this comic while it was still available online via Zuda comics and was blown away This is the story of Lee Wagstaff a little African American girl living in the South in the 30 s This alternate reality South is populated not only by the real people and tensions of our world but by the gods and monsters bred by them After Lee s friend Lily a little white girl goes missing and Lee s father is wrongly beaten and imprisoned for it she goes on a uest to save him For Lee knows a secretit wasn t her father that stole away Lily it was the spirits of the Otherworld who inhabit the nearby swamp that took her away And so little Lee Wagstaff heads into the frightening unknown world of the bayou where she meets a staunch friend and ally the gentle giant named after the Bayou itself and like Alice she goes through the looking glass into a world both like and unlike her ownThe art is beautiful and moving and the story is a powerful one that pulls no punches when dealing with the realty of racism and hatred in the South This realism is expertly mixed with the magical Otherworld in a way I ve only ever seen eualled by Sean Stewart The danger of magic and the high cost of dealing with it are effectively portrayed and the nightmares spawned by the hatred of the landscape are only eualled by the pathos of some of the Otherworld creatures like simple Bayou himself or the spirit of Lee s lynched friend Billy GlassLee s adventures soon go off track as they are wont to when we cross the border of the real and the unreal and she soon finds herself entangled in the politics and machinations of the bayou a world no less complex and dangerous than her ownI highly recommend checking out this comic and hope to track down the other volumes of Lee s story soon

I don t know where to start in reviewing Bayou I don t think this is going to be a review as much as a glorificationI ll start with something I didn t really notice until I finished and I was flipping through all the pages the LIGHT Underwater Yellow sunlight Red orange sunset Pink dawn The black of a jail cell Murky brown at the bayou Blue to carry a shotgun across the fieldThis is a beautiful story to look at often at the same time it s horrifyingI want to claim that Bayou at least as of this first volume isn t fantasy as much as magical realism The fantastic elements aren t part of normal life except insofar as they re the gigantic iridescent shadows of normal life but neither are they terrifying or abnormal to Lee the protagonist than those parts of her reality that she must deal with at the side of her father or other adult relativesMy favorite pages are those on which we see Lee through Bayou s eyes In one as she prepares to do something Bayou hasn t the courage for she isn t wearing her patched dress but a flowing gown and gold around her neck and in her ears and hair Later when she cries for Bayou to help her he sees her straining against a chain Whom is Bayou remembering
