Scalped v1: #3
Part 3 (of 3)
by Jason Aaron (writer) and R.M. Guéra (artist)
This installment doesn't wind things down as much as set them up for future story arcs. A lot happens without an excessive amount of exposition. The action set piece that takes place on the first few pages of this chapter is beautifully drawn and colored. Bad Horse is a man on a mission serving more than one master, without a sanctuary or release valve. This first arc is a tease, sex without orgasm. Even though it won't appeal to everyone it will hook some who crave dark stories of reluctant heroes who face impossible odds while on multiple quests.
Scalped is published by Vertigo, an imprint of DC Comics
