Scalped Volume 2: Casino Boogie (NOOK Comics with Zoom View)by Jason Aaron, R. M. Guera
Fifteen years ago, Dashiell "Dash" Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better. Now he's come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucks, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on "The Rez" -- short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.
This volume explores Dash Bad Horse's troubled origin and chronicles his day-to-day life on "The Rez" working for Chief Red Crow.

Dark depressing stuff. Better than the walking dead
This second volume of Scalped is just as dark, just as dirty, and just as grimey as its predecessor. Here all the issues takes place at the same time, the opening of the Casino. We get to see the night take place from many different characters points of view. Jason Aaron provides a look into what at times seems like an alien world while actually being in the middle of the country. R. M. Guera's art is finely suited for this trade however the color hues are sometimes too dark to take in the picture without struggling to decpher it. Overall, the book is almost great.
