    Why is this not an HBO series?!?

    Scalped is, in turns, sad, funny, uplifting, depressing, thrilling, frightening and always - ALWAYS - a great read! The scope and depth of the writing far exceeds what people expect of the graphic novel. The hero - if he can be called one - is as deeply conflicted as any main stream protagonist and the web of deceit surrounding him is filled with good people doing bad things and bad people doing good. It is no wonder that Dashiel Bad Horse occasionally loses his moral compass. This is the 8th graphic novel in this series and a new reader may be occasionally lost in some of the strands that make up the story but if that intrigues soemone to seek out the rest of the novels, they will be greatly rewarded by an exceptional story. There are minor glitches here and there with continuity - over look the fact that if these were real people in these situations they would be in their 80's and 90's - but that really doesn't detract from the story at all. The main 'villian' is a criminal equal of Don Corelone - a man who may short-cut the law but actually has more than himself in mind. As complex as the Soprano's and as twisted as Homeland, this story begs for a cable network series. Try it. You will appreciate it.

    Great story full of twists and turns! Its Donnie Brasco meets Reservior Dogs on an Indian Reservation what's not to love!

    I love it! Aaron is one of those rare writers who can not only write a great story, but always keeps you guessing what'll happen next. I must say; however to truly enjoy Scalped you need to start at vol. 1 and read on from there. You won't be disappionted.
