In "Unwanted" part 2, Dash and Carol both battle their inner demons while a surprising character makes his dramatic return to the rez. Read the series that LOST co-creator Damon Lindelof called "Dark, beautiful and not for kids. Graphic storytelling at its best."

    The arrival of Dash's father is an interesting addition to the series, but so far it's difficult to know what to make of Wade's presence on the Rez. R.M. Guera definitely carries this issue with his art. The aforementioned scene of Carol's recovery is particularly memorable, but there are plenty of other terrific scenes that hinge on Guera's ability to convey emotion and tension with no words to aid him. "Unwanted" continues to be another worthy chapter in Aaron's excellent saga. Read Full Review

    Scalped is tackling a tough topic in this arc, but the real trick is going to be putting all of these broken characters back together again. At this point I'm not sure how this will all play out but I am sure it will be jarring along the way. This is another good issue that will surely entertain on a lot of levels. Read Full Review

    Most of "Scalped" #40 is struggle and pain and misery, and it's done very well as usual, but it doesn't stand out like the playful, fun four-page scene between Red Crow and Wade. Jason Aaron and RM Gura continually produce fantastic comics and it's easy to take them for granted, so they like to remind us all how good they are by mixing things up like they do here. Forty issues in and this series is still a constant surprise Read Full Review

    A really good issue of Scalped, no surprise there, but ultimately one that will read better when collected. Read Full Review
