    The art and words work best in emotional scenes, like Dino on the phone with his parole officer. The panic and angry frustration in his words is matched perfectly with his body language and facial expression. Aaron and Guera are perfectly in sync here to the point where it's hard to tell who does his job better sometimes. They are fast on their way to being one of the top collaborative teams in comics today, just as "Scalped" is just about the best book coming out monthly. Read Full Review

    And with that, I'm left with my usual monthly list of non-complaints. the characterization and dialogue are as strong as always. It really doesn't matter who Aaron thrusts into the main role of an issue, because he always finds ways to make his characters instantly compelling, regardless of how despicable they might be. And R.M. Guera's art is as perfectly suited to the gritty, dusty hills of the Rez as ever. Aaron would have to do far worse than employ some wonky narrative structure to turn me off Scalped at this point. Read Full Review
