In "Knuckle Up" part 1 of 5, it's war on the reservation as Red Crow loses his grip on the reins, Agent Nitz gains momentum and Dash Bad Horse faces his toughest foe yet.

    Holy crap. After a pathetic waste of a milestone issue, Jason Aaron more than makes up for it by cramming as much story as possible into this issue. This book was intense. Read Full Review

    "Scalped" is a book that will become a rite of passage. To become a man, you'll read this tome and then you'll understand. The truths of masculinity presented on the page, both the nice and stupid ones, are starkly set against the eventual demise of all that we love and strangle to death. If this is just the start of the descent to the end of "Scalped" then I shudder to image what awaits us at the abyssal conclusion. Read Full Review

    Surprise! Scalped #51 is absolutely worth buying if you've been reading this series up to this point. This issue is yet another piece added to Aaron and Guera's twisted puzzle and should not be missed. If you're late to the Scalped party (like, way late at this point), then do yourself a favor and rush to your local shop to catch up via trades so you can follow along monthly as the series winds down to its natural conclusion. Because once Scalped is gone, there's going to be a definite void left in the comic industry. Read Full Review

    Classic Scalped. There are about 10 ways the action can explode from this issue and I expect at least 9 of them will pay off. Read Full Review

    Scalped is a great series and this issue moves all the chess pieces into place for the final few issues. However, Carol is the big component missing. The ending of this series simply won't be satisfying if she isn't a major player. Another excellent read from Scalped, as always. Read Full Review
