Scalped, Vol. 8: You Gotta Sin to Get Saved

  1. Jason Aaron R.M. Guéra Jason Latour Davide Furnò says:
    Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi autobiographical novel The Short Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.Aaron s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight page Wolverine back up story script The story, which was published in Wolverine 175 June 2002 , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the second time he broke into the industry.Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC Vertigo.In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008 His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie in to the company wide crossover storyline along with a Secret Invasion with David Lapham in 2009.In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker s Asylum.After a 4 issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X Men Origins Wolverine Aaron commented, With Wolverine Weapon X we ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre, In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine He followed this with his current run on Thor God of Thunder.

  1. Lincoln Red Crow is the hero Wow Aaron, you sure got some balls on you In the early days of this series, he was a ball breaking, hard as nails sumbitch who I was easily convinced was the villain By the time I finished this book, I am convinced that I d started with a very different understanding of the character than Aaron did.This book is still drawing out the drama and suspense on addressing which circle of hell this express train of pain will crash My patience is starting to stretch, as I m w [...]


  2. This flawless series continues with an excellent eighth volume, You Gotta Sin To Get Saved , which sees Bad Horse receive an offer from Red Crow that will change everything either he gets to take down Red Crow or replace him Carol s presence in Granma s house has an unfortunate side effect on Poor Bear and an ominous consequence later on in the series, if the rantings of Catcher are to be believed, while the fate of Officer Falls Down is decided, the killer of Bad Horse s mother becomes desperat [...]


  3. Volume 8 does not escalate the story in terms of action but surely there is some fun gunbattles here, thanks to Agent Nitz but int terms of a sense of heightened character motivations As the name of this volume suggests, this is a story of redemption and being again Some, like Dino and Catcher may have some pretty bad experiences but all in all, this pretty much sets up the stage for thw climax.


  4. Aaron continues to delve deeper into the broken personalities of his cast of characters, and nearly every page will surprise you People change, revert to their old ways, make decisions that seem mind boggling, then make total sense It s an incredible read from cover to cover I finished this in about 2 hours.


  5. Two stand alone issues preceded the 5 part title story I would have to say that this volume is the slowest one yet, and that not much really happens Still enjoyable, however, but not as gripping as the volumes preceding it.



  6. This volume of Scalped was just as astonishing as the earlier installments in the series I am getting the feeling that once this saga comes to an end, it will rank with Sandman, Watchmen, and Joe Kelly s run on Deadpool as one of the greatest comic book works of all time This volume is much plot driven than the issues featured in the previous installment The story is advancing toward its inevitably bloody conclusion with all of the suspense and tension of a Sam Peckinpah film At the same time, [...]


  7. If I could give 6 stars to this volume, I would A bit fast paced, the plot is cohesive throughout, very dramatic, complicated in a good way , even funny in one spot Everyone s histories are catching up with them, characters have learned from their pasts, dues are paid in blood I can feel the end of the story approaching, but don t want to let go of this series The writer, Jason Aaron, is a force to reckon with and definitely to be watched and followed though he s working on superheroes right now [...]


  8. Outstanding This is always an extremely fun series to read this volume was no different Dont want to give much away, but Dash is finally getting in position to take down Red Crow The only complaint I ve ever had about this series is that at times the artwork doesn t seem as sharp as it could be However the artwork in this Vol is excellent, of course the writing is perfect as always I ve got used copies of the final two volumes on order from , supposed to be here the day after tomr Can t wait


  9. Caught up on the last year s worth of this comic all in one night If ever a comic cried out to be made into an HBO series, it s this one It is as gripping as it ever was One of the most brilliantly realized crime comics of all time The good guys are pretty nasty and the bad guys have heart, and in the end everyone is left in the shades of gray between This series pretty much demands to be read in large chunks, though I can t imagine waiting for a month between issues and I m so glad I saved the [...]


  10. I ve gotten used to Jason Aaron s dizzy spinning his moral compass round but here he strips literally some major characters down and makes the spiritual god digesting mushbrains into toxic agents of either chaos, boredom, or danger Fear is a man s best friend Gambling s for fools Not sure what s going on with Sheriff Wooster T Karnow other than another dizzy has been plonk picking a ridiculous battle I just hope he s not named after Stanley.


  11. One of the best series ever Fantastic stories, human characters with real human flaws, realistic situations Absolutely beautiful drawings.The complexity of the love stories of Dash and Carol, Dash s Mom and Carol s Dad, and those that they set aside is continuously intriguing and heart breaking.


  12. Ho t I have no idea how they do it, but this keeps getting better and better and and gutwrenching and, oh good lord there are no words for this at all I really, really like where this is going Wherever that is Scares the hell out of me on pretty much every character s behalf and that s saying something.


  13. I ve run out of superlatives for this great series It has to be the best comic out there right now One thing I will say is that R M Guera s art is amazing and I really miss it every time someone does a fill in issue.




  14. I took a couple weeks break in between volume 7 and 8 and immediately regretted it when I realized I had to get used to that amount of violence again It s easier to power through when you re inundated with violence, I guess Which ist the highest recommendation.I m getting excited to see where the series ends, though.




  15.

  16. Scalped is arguably the best serial I ve ever read in the graphic novel sector my only alternative to it being Y The Last Man by Brian K Vaughan In the first 3 or 4 collections of Scalped, I grew to love and hate certain characters as their personalities and tangled histories came to life As I turn the final page on the 8th installment, I find that the characters I least liked, I now love, and those that I loved, I hate Nothing is stagnant on The Rez, andch as in real lifeere is no black and whi [...]


  17. Daddy mentor issues drive the drama in this volume of Scalped Unlike the previous volume, which began with a subtle story about an elderly couple struggling to make ends meet, Volume 8 starts off with the familiar grit of a hard edged sheriff with a lot of Tall Tales to tell Gina Bad Horse s killer is also revealed in this volume and Red Crow, the mafia boss, makes Dash, his trusted confident, an important post in his organization Red Crow also has a heart to heart meeting with his mentor It s h [...]


  18. A few long standing plot threads are or less tied up in Volume 8 of Scalped, but first a couple of prelude type chapters in the first, minor recurring character and grade A shit talker Sheriff Karnow finally has to live up to his outsized reputation, and his failure sets him up to be, perhaps, a major factor in the saga later Then we catch up to Federal Agent Nitz in the middle of a crisis.After that, the central story here begins Red Crow faces a serious challenge to his tribal leadership, Das [...]


  19. So this is a fitting end to a fantastic series Not my favorite of all the Scalped books, but if you ve read the rest, you re going to read this one And you won t be disappointed If you re not familiar with Scalped get familiar It s gritty crime fiction in the unusual setting of a South Dakota Indian reservation You watch the vicious cycle of morally defunct getting rich on the backs of the weak willed and the destitute, exacerbated by the wholly awful situation that is the res To make matters wo [...]


  20. Although Aaron finds his way back to his excellent storytelling in this book, it also marks his low point yet I had some things to criticize in the previous volume, but none as much as the view spoiler absolute unnecessary and forced fall and rerise of Agent Nitz view spoiler I found myselfe hoping that that scene would turn out to be a dream or some kind of delusion Alas, it s meant to be real and that makes The night they drove old dixie down the worst single story in an otherwise brilliant se [...]


  21. Volume 8 continues to flesh out this cast of unlikable, yet somehow still sympathetic characters, but it didn t blow me away the way the last volume did Partially, I think it s the artwork Scalped has always been so dark that it s hard to follow action sequences, but this one seems worse than usual I m still not clear on the sequence of events in the showdown between Dash and Catcher at the end, for example Also, some of the faces in this one seem exaggerated, particularly Nitz and Catcher They [...]


  22. This volume seems to really open up the vulnerabilities of Dino, Red Crow, and Falls Down along with some insights into Catcher s role in this whole saga Red Crow become human, Dino is misguided by a one sided love infatuation and Falls Down ends up at the mercy of Catcher s delusional reality This volume has really taken the saga a little deeper into the twists and turns of human psychology.


  23. The two stand alones don t really tell us any new information, but the art is fun The main story actually solves a bunch of my complaints about volume 7, pivoting the story into new directions while resolving other plots Lincoln Red Crow is the stand out character here he s the reason I keep reading this series, and this is a great volume for his character Points deducted for having one entire issue rely on the Nice Guy Friend Zone I Think Of You Like A Brother punchline.


  24. With the quality of Rez Blues, it was pretty clear that this is where things would start to go bad This basically is a piece mover collection, as characters get set up for the finale There s a absurdistly silly section about Agent Nitz, and a couple other character pieces, but no major set pieces Not bad, but after the last book, it was a little bit of a let down.


  25. Still very good, but it feels like the story is a bit too stretched out at this point I feel like it should have come to an end somewhere around this volume, but there are still two trades left On the other hand, two trades seem probably just about right to tie up all the many plot lines that were accumulating since issue 1 Looking forward to the grand finale.
