    I felt dirty reading this, in a good way

    Jason Aaron gives us a gritty, grimey tale on the Rez that is so in your face its hard to explain. This world feels alien while being realistic. Guera's art is rough which fits with the storyline. Its dark. Seriously dark. The twists and turns are worth the weird feeling in your guts. Good stuff!

    Brilliant

    Film noir in graphic novel form! The writing is so well done that characters seem so real and gritty. If you love crime fiction/drama, but none of that CSI b.s., which each case is solved at the conclusion of each episode, then you owe it to yourself to at least check it out. It has that HBO "The Wire" feel only that the setting is a reservation. Simply brilliant!

    A tough comic

    This is the comic thats up there with other vertigo masterpieces like sandman, preacher and y the last man. For those who can handle a depressing tone buy the book
