  1. ohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboyohboy!

  2. Normally I wouldn’t care about a story about a third tier character but….this is Scalped. And Scalped is the Best Thing.

  3. Last issue was the best single issue of the year thus far IMHO. I gotta say… I got a little misty.

  4. Every leader needs a sideman, and in Red Crow’s case, it’s Shunka.  I hope he breaks his nose yet again in this arc.

  5. @Corpseed- That’s funny because I thought issue #34 has been the best issue of the year so far. Oh Scalped how I love you.

    Shunka- Level 80 Paladin on Kel’Thuzad:). It is suffice to say that I’m a little excited for this story.

  6. Hmmm I’m seeing a theme to this thread: Scalped = very good.

  7. Even fill-in artists can’t temper my enthusiasm for this book. The awesomeness never ends when it comes to Scalped.

  8. I love this book. Miss R.M. Guera when he’s not on this but the story is so strong it barely hurts it

  9. Jump on point?

  10. @ Simmons – I’m all for more people reading this book, but I’d hate for someone to dislike because they don’t quite know the story so far.  I think this book has been great since the start, so why not grab the first trade?

  11. @sunny Agreed.  ‘Jumping on points’ are more difficult on Vertigo runs.  Get the first trade and get the feel of the book.

  12. @simmons- The first trade was good, but it seems the second arc is what really gets its hooks into people. After espousing for months about how awesome this book was, I lent a fellow comic reader the first trade and I think it left him scratching his head as to why I was so crazy about the series. After he read second trade though, he was completely on-board.

  13. I agree, definitely start at the beginning, you won’t be dissapointed.  The trades read quickly and you’ll have a lot more appreciation for all the side characters and moods of the series.

  14. @Ruo21 You were right.. until 35 came out. ;p  Holy s#!t is this title good. I need this in hard cover… STAT!!!

  15. Looking for a 6th star here….

  16. I love a lot of comic books, but I don’t know one that is consistently as good as Scalped. Start with the trades.

  17. Oh Scalped, how come you’re so good?

  18. Total curveball issue, wow.  How can every single character in this book be so intriguing?  Do Jason Aaron’s other books even come close to the quality of Scalped?  I’ve read The Otherside and thought it was tremendous.

  19. makes <fill in the blank> look like s#!t

  20. @JesseG – I agree. The first trade is good. But it’s the second trade that got me hooked! It was the same way with Preacher for me. It’s just a matter of the characters being fleshed out some more.

  21. When (if) this gets a big hard cover, omnibus, or deluxe treatment, I will buy about 5 of them to give to people.

  22. You and me both, Josh.  You and me both.  On one hand it’s a little cliche, to reveal that trait about a badass, but it was just so well done.  Spectacular issue.


  24. So that now makes 3 pick of the weeks in a row for Scalped. Easily the best title on the shelf these days.

  25. I will be re-reading this series for years to come.
