Коротко по-русски: Графический роман "Сказки юга" является предысторией одноименного фильма. Автор комикса, он же режиссер фильма, Ричард Келли изначально планировал создать что-то вроде интерактивного проекта, издав 6 выпусков комикса, а затем выпустив фильм, завершающий всю историю. В итоге концепция несколько поменялась и графический роман вышел в трех частях. Однако его прочтение значительно способствует пониманию фильма и настоятельно рекомендуется к прочтению до просмотра.
