In this first part of an all-new arc that sets up major events on the Prairie Rose reservation, we see the landscape through the eyes of a newcomer a card shark and con man whose presence could spell doom for one of our main characters. The countdown to chaos begins here with part 1 of "High Lonesome."

    And yes, this new character does have an important connection to the ongoing saga of Dash. I've noted many times how odd it's been to see so little of Dash in recent issues, but I think this arc will end up dragging him back to the forefront in a major way. Aaron lays the seeds for something pretty cool in this issue. And with the always-gripping pencils of R.M. Guera, there are plenty of reasons to be excited for "High Lonesome". I've started to wonder if Unknown Soldier might not unseat Scalped as my favorite Vertigo book. With this new arc, it's clear the two books are going to have quite the epic clash. Read Full Review
