    It's at once heartbreaking and perhaps deceptively optimistic, but Scalped #50 is without a doubt a shining achievement of its publication. Between this, American Vampire #16, and DMZ #66 from last week, Vertigo is on one hell of a roll. Read Full Review

    So, while it does work as a standalone tale, Scalped #50 also manages to act as a comment on the series as a whole up until this point. Life can be difficult, life can be almost unbearable, but the very act of living is a triumphant overcoming of the odds. Perhaps it is a comment that applies to the creators as well as the characters. Scalped has defiantly lived on to its 50th issue. Congratulations to everyone involved in getting this far: now let's see where the rest of the story goes. Read Full Review

    "Scalped" #50 is both a celebration and a reminder of the book's consistent level of quality. While Jason Aaron has spoke of an end point, it's hard to not want at least 50 more issues now. But, for now, why not just recognize one of the best ongoing monthly comics there are? Read Full Review

    A real achievement to get to 50 issues. Let's have a round of applause for Team Scalped! It is a very strong issue that doesn't quite get the emotional reaction they were shooting for, but doesn't come off as preachy either. Maybe we have another 50 issues coming? I doubt it, but we can hope. Read Full Review

    NO! No, no, no, no. I can't freaking believe that Vertigo would do something like this. This issue was 1000% filler. It was basically a pin-up gallery. Read Full Review
