    In some ways, the ending also feels like a new beginning, but Aaron has says that he's not planning any more Scalped, and while it's possible to imagine more stories that could be told in this setting, they're not necessary: the throughline from Indian Country, the first story arc, through the absorbing stories of characters like Diesel, Franklin Falls Down, Shunka, and Sheriff Kurnow, to the concluding Trail's End, has been as involving and moving as any comic I've read in years. It may hurt to know that I won't be reading new installments of Scalped any more, but honestly, it had to end this way. Read Full Review

    With this completed work, Aaron and Guera have done their part at keeping our industry's heartbeat steady -- they've blown it away and left an experience in their wake. Read Full Review

    And now, were leaving the Prairie Rose Reservation. These 60 issues have been an incredible journey, one of the best comics-reading experiences Ive had or am ever likely to have. Every month I knew I was in for a treat when I saw a new edition of Scalped on the shelves, and throughout its run it managed to consistently be one of the best titles in circulation. Now, theres a massive void in my reading pile that will not be easily filled. Its a shame that it wasnt read more widely, and I can only hope its audience and acclaim continue to grow in the years to come. A big congratulations, and a massive thank you, to Jason Aaron, R.M. Guera, Guilia Brusco, letterer Sal Cipriano, cover artist Jock, editorial team Will Dennis and Mark Doyle, and all the other creators who have made this comic so special over its magnificent run. Scalped is comics at its very best. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Edward Kaye Aug 27, 2012

    Scalped #60 brings Aaron and Guerra's magnum opus to an fitting and bloody conclusion, which provides some satisfying story resolutions, but ultimately leaves things on the reservation pretty much the same as they were in the first issue. Life marches on, and cares little for the plight of our characters... Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Aug 23, 2012

    It's been a long time since a modern Vertigo title felt like it was destined to be a classic that would stand amongst the greats, but if any book has a chance it's this one. Congratulations to Aaron, Guera, Jock and the entire team behind the book on a fantastic piece of comic work, and we're officially counting down the days until the next one. Read Full Review

    For a final issue, Scalped hits all the right notes, leaving readers with a satisfactory finale to an acclaimed series. Read Full Review

    While the ultimate fate of Dash Bad Horse will leave some readers debating or perhaps even upset, in the context of the greater whole, it's the only place he was going from the get-go. Scalped is a crime epic that it's not hyperbole to call a modern classic, and its conclusion will put a serious void in my pull list. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Aug 23, 2012

    Endings are really hard and this issue falls a little short of being a perfect cherry on top a wonderful series. Still, I can't wait to go back and reread the entire series in its entirety and start giving the trades away to people as presents. Thanks Messrs. Aaron and Guera! It's been a wonderful ride. We'll always have the tension of those early arcs with Diesel threatening to blow Dash's cover, the brutality of that one-armed Hmong dude, thatincredibleissue with the old couple, Dash and Carol standing on a snow-covered road with her struggling to tell him about her pregnancy, the tragic story of Shunka, the shoot-out between Dash and Catcher in the cab of a pickup.

    I wanted a big, bloody gun fight. Instead, I got a few panels of strange fighting between only one potential dance partnership. I expected the wrap-up and that didn't disappoint, but when you add up the components it makes for an okay to good issue and that's all. This is a great series and don't be fooled by the so-so ending. This series is well worth your time. I am going to miss this title without question. Read Full Review
