The intensity ratchets up yet another notch in part three of "The Gnawing" as Dash Bad Horse feels the walls closing in all around him. The drunken mystic called Catcher claims to be sent by the gods to save Bad Horse from himself, while the jailed murderer Diesel claims to be the closest thing Bad Horse has to a friend. But can he really trust either one of them?

    There's little to be said about R.M. Guera's work these days, other than that it's still great. Guera effectively blends the aesthetics of crime noir and Western together. The series has sometimes been a little too gritty and dusty in appearance for its own good. But one thing I've noticed lately is that Guera and colorist Giulia Brusco seem to be playing around more with varied colors and lighting. This issue is a nice showcase for different moods and and visual tones, so the variety is definitely on the rise. Read Full Review

    Like most middle chapters, this part of "The Gnawing" is mostly about moving things along, but Aaron and Gura do that with great skill, embracing the speed with which things are happening now, piling it all up so it can fall over in future issues. It's not just treading water, padding things out, as the issue ends with a few big changes as a new alliance is formed and trouble continues to approach the reservation. If you're not reading "Scalped," what are you reading and how is it better? Read Full Review
