My first introduction to Jason Aaron’s work was his hard boiled Southern Bastards series that took me right up in middle of the deep Souths heart. Aaron’s way of telling stories is to go to the darker side of something familiar, give us all the filth and ugliness that not so many dare to admit and explore. But doing so, he has a great sense of respect towards the things he is writing about, and there is always the presence of truthiness within as the stereotypes always come from the realness of
First volume of Scalped was no exception from the familiar formula I have begun to know, even when the setting is the Indian reservation instead of the deep South. The storytelling is captivating, intriguing, well researched build up to something I sense to be a well done series where each volume will be a part of something bigger than a one could hope for.
I am looking forward to tackling through the remaining 9 volumes to see was I right or was I wrong. But something tells me, I am not going to be a disappointed fangirl-in-the-making.
I am coming for you, Aaron. I am.
Thirty years ago Alan Moore changed the face of comics, Watchmen, V for Vendetta, The Killing Joke–we’ve all heard the story before, and I’ve certainly put my 2 cents in. Now, he’s not the only revolutionary comic writer out there: Gerber was writing realistic superhero stories years before Moore, and Milligan has a complex, literary voice to rival Moore’s.
But Moore is still the great inspiration, the ever-changing, wide-reaching face of comics as an art form. And so he has become a touchpoint

Dashiell Bad Horse returns to the reservation where he grew up with a pair of nunchucks and proceeds to start whipping ass. This gets the attention of local honcho Red Crow who is getting ready to open a casino, and he gets Bad Horse a job as a deputy where he can legally crack the skulls of everyone interfering with Red Crow’s plans. Bad Horse also has to face his estranged activist mother who is protesting the casino,and there’s also his old flame who doesn’t let a husband stop her from bangin
This is great crime story with enough violence, blood and sex to be an HBO series. The unique setting of the rez with its population of disenfranchised Native-Americans gives it an interesting backdrop and provides plenty of complex conflicts for Bad Horse to deal with.
My only complaint is that more people weren’t actually scalped. That’s false advertising!
