Summary
Three brothers who rule their own trailer park kingdom must face off against the sheriff of a neighboring town who wants their territory. From The New York Times bestselling writer Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and artist Tyler Jenkins (Peter Panzerfaust) comes the critically acclaimed rural mystery series chronicling the tragic lives of the Grass Kings, three brothers and rulers of a self-sufficient trailer park kingdom - a fiefdom of the hopeless and lost seeking a promised land. The grass kingdom is run by eldest brother Robert, who has been grief-stricken since losing his daughter years ago. When a mysterious young woman flees to their community in search of safety, Robert takes her in. As her true identity comes to light, Robert must decide if his chance at atonement is worth risking the entire Kingdom

Review
In this lushly drawn graphic novel, Robert and his brothers rule the Grass Kingdom, a sovereign nation somewhere in modern-day rural America whose residents consider themselves independent from the government and outsiders. When Robert takes in Maria, a woman on the lam, a standoff develops between the Grass Kingdom and the neighboring town of Cargill, whose corrupt sheriff has been waiting for an excuse to organize a raid. The conflict between outlaw homesteaders and lawmen bent on vengeance has the form of a modern-day western, but Kindt lends a broader scope with flashbacks across the violent history of the area and the sense that, over the centuries, “this patch of earth has been earned.” Though the Grass Kingdom is a weedy trailer park community, Jenkins’s carefully observed, jewel-toned watercolor art imbues a sense of magic, as the inhabitants see it: a fantasy kingdom of woods and fields, sunset-drenched farmhouses, and eccentric makeshift homes such as a houseboat lodged in a tree. The first volume resolves the central plot while setting up a mystery around a long-missing serial killer to carry the story into future installments. Elegiac in tone, this story and its fictional world are drawn with rich details that make it seem possible for the reader to stroll right in.
