Scalped #28

Written by Jason Aaron
Art by RM Guera

So far, the 'High Lonesome' arc has been a series of single issues that have focused on one particular character at a time. There was the nameless card counter and grifter in the first issue, followed by Diesel, and Nitz last month.

This issue opens with the beleaguered Officer Falls Down investigating the murder shown at the beginning of the arc, and so I thought that the book would mostly focus on him. Instead, it propels the main plotline of Scalped forward quite a bit, finally revealing the identity of the murderer of both the FBI officers back in '75, and the murderer of Gina Bad Horse.

As always, this issue is absolutely excellent. I'm glad that all the work he's doing for hire at Marvel is not splitting Aaron's attention away from this book, and it was good to have Guera back on the art for this important issue. I also like the way the cops with Falls Down hint about things going on at the Casino, without revealing what they are. I can't wait to see how this all plays out next issue.
