The searing final arc starts here in "Trail's End" part one. Beginning months after last issue's shocking finale, we pick up with the citizens of the Prairie Rose Rez, some of whom have found a peace they never could have imagined, while others are in more trouble than ever with at least one person plotting his next move from behind bars.

    Throughout this issue, more than anything, you get a palpable sense that the end is nigh. Scalped #56 feels like it could be the final issue in itself, but thankfully theres four more to go. Still, I cant help but feel really sad: in a few months, I wont have a new issue of Scalped to look forward to! This is the same feeling I got as I neared the end of the final seasons of The Shield and The Wire. Itll truly be the end of an era. Read Full Review

    The issue's time jump definitely threw me for a loop when I first sunk my teeth into Scalped #56. I instantly had flashbacks to the final issue of one of Vertigo's other epics, Y: The Last Man. But in a good way. The decision to go this route works out nicely for the narrative and makes the inevitable drama to ensue all the more crushing. Man, I'm going to miss this series so much.

    With this final arc and direction, "Scalped" proves itself as amazing as it's always been. Aaron has crafted a unique and spectacular tale in "Scalped." If he needs to write a dozen other Marvel events and X-books just to bring one of these out a decade, then comics will be the winner in the end. A book like this only comes out so often and it's been given the scope and room to deliver on all counts. "Scalped" is a true miracle arranged each and every month. Read Full Review

    It's bitter sweet. The series is about to end and I don't want it to go, but it looks Aaron is very committed to giving the characters a proper sending off. Read Full Review

    This serves as a launch into unchartered territory for this comic. I'm sure the ending will be surprise laden, but until then we will have to wait and see how this develops. This issue's shift in tone, time period and characterization was a bit jarring but still entertaining. The beginning of the end of this series has started and I am anxious to see how it comes together. Read Full Review
