Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. Aaron's reservation setting, described by a character in the first chapter as a third world nation in the heart of America, is perfect for a story of crime and family. Dash Bad Horse has come back to the reservation he ran away from at age 13. Now he enforces the law in a land where many have given up hope. Bad Horse is also an undercover FBI agent, put back in his home so federal authorities can take down crime boss and casino owner Lincoln Red Crow. Aaron masterfully depicts Bad Horse's tortured split psychology. The character is tough as nails and switches quickly between displaying likable and unlikable behavior. The family dynamics, which includes Bad Horse's activist mother and Red Crow's wild daughter, could come off as soap opera, but Aaron knows how to use personal relationships to explain character and setting. The world of the Prairie Rose Reservation is full of life thanks to the art of Guera, somewhat in the vein of Eduardo Risso's on 100 Bullets. His characters contain a certain amount of grace no matter how ugly the situations get. The second story collected in the book is the flashback-heavy Hoka Hey, which shows that Aaron has a complex history planned for these characters. (Aug.)

Review

"Overwhelming is the right word to use for this book. It's a must-buy." - Silver Bullet Comics "Scalped reads like an action movie... punctuated by dollops of violence, splashes of sexuality, and seeds of future storylines planted everywhere you look." - Newsarama.com "Jason Aaron's new creation hits the mark. His latest work might start an avalanche unlike Indian Country has ever seen... If Scalped doesn't leave shivers down your back, read it again." - RezNet News" --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Not what I expected picking it up! Although I was amazed by the story I was given. Focused primarily on a character called Dash Bad Horse, we have an amazing noir story. I was lent the series by a buddy and can honestly say, it is worth buying easily. It should be raised up alongside Preacher, Y: The Last Man, and Transmetropolitan as one of the must reads. If you're on the edge and enjoy crime stories this is up your alley!

By Book Cupid TOP 1000 REVIEWER on May 7 2015
Format: Paperback
As I flipped through Scalped, I saw so many bloody scenes, I feared gratuitous violence. Once more, proving that first impressions can be deceiving.

Scalped tells the story of Bad Horse's return to the rez, after he left behind a distraught activist mother and Carol, a girl who loves him. Sadly (for her, not the reader who gets to gawk at several nude illustrations) Carol shacks anyone with a male anatomy. Her own daddy calls her a whore, hence why I rated the book less than five stars. Women are just badly portrayed.

Of course, instead of fixing the situation with these two women who love him, Bad Horse gets mixed up between the cops and the town folks protesting against the new casino.

Wow. Speechless. I am near perplexed how to describe the impact 'Scalped' has had on me. I started with Vol. 1 and immediately bought the remaining 9 in the series. Took me the weekend to finish them all. '100 Bullets' may still be considered the best Crime series in the last 20 years from the world of comics and graphic novels, but Jason Aaron's 'Scalped' is by far the closest runner up yet. What makes 'Scalped' so different for me, was the resonating presence of ALL the characters, their individual story lines and their intricate relationships together in a scenario and setting such as the Prairie Rose rez - with all its' history, beauty and ugliness. The writing is fast but articulate and captivating with punches of subtle humour. Of all the crime comic series I have read, 'Scalped' is the one that had such a visual impact on me. The art is as near perfect for crime noir comics, that uniquely captures the essence of each and every character, especially as they progress in the story. My only regret is that Vertigo has NOT yet decided to give this most excellent Crime series the deluxe Hardcover treatment, as they have with 100 Bullets. 'Scalped' most certainly deserves it. Get 'Scalped'. Now.

Scalped is a series that everyone who loves crime novels should read, I know comic books are really hard to understand what with the character who is speaking having a bubble coming out of his mouth and everything but get over it and read Scalped, it's the grittiest look at America in books today.
