Jason Aaron (born January 28, 1973) is an American comic book writer, known for his work on titles such as Thor, The Other Side, Scalped, Ghost Rider, Wolverine and PunisherMAX. Jason Aaron was born in Jasper, Alabama. His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the l novel The Short-Timers (1979), on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket (1987) was based, was a large influence on Aaron.

Fifteen years ago, Dashiell "Dash" Bad Horse ran away from a life of poverty and hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservationin search of 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 run by a corrupt leader named Red Crow, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.

In this volume, war breaks out on the reservation as Red Crow loses his grip on the reins and Dash Bad Horse faces his toughest and fiercest foe yet.

I found this series 6 years after it finished. And I only found it because of Mr. Aaron's work on Thor (which is great).

If you are reading this, then you must (MUST) have already read most or all of the earlier volumes of Scalped. I can assure you that the greatness continues. The story is coming to a head, and this volume has a number of huge moments and a major shocker (or two...or three). Jason Aaron has done an excellent job diving into the heads and backstories of so many characters, and now, as he winds the series down, he is bringing all of these characters and their backstories into contact (and/or conflict) with each other in a tremendously satisfying way.

R.M. Guera's artwork has drastically improved over this series. It held this book back in the early volumes, but he hit his stride in volumes 4 or 5 and in the later volumes he just kills it. Wonderful landscapes, facial expressions, clothing, shading...it's just a thrill to see.

I'm so glad I found this series. I think I may have compared it to my favorite TV show, The Wire, in another review. Jason Aaron is a man of many talents--dialogue, characterization, plot--and they all shine in this series. My only "complaint" about this series is the quality of the paper the trade paperbacks are printed on. Seems a little shoddy for someone like me who looks forward to collecting these and revisiting them years down the road. It was also great to see all the guest artists chip in on the first issue in this TPB--seeing Tim Truman's artwork definitely brought back super pleasant memories of Scout!

The need to ship stuff better we buy the box is to read and if the story is good like this one they can turn into collector

This is a must read series it's a home run

Honestly, I could run down a number of reasons for you to pick up this book, but none of them would do Scalped justice. I read a fair number of Graphic Novels, not as many as I would like to, but a fair number overall and this is one of the few books that I pick up that I can honestly say is all around awesomeness. It's pretty rare for even the best books to have the perfect compliment of great writing and great art, but Jason Aaron and RM Guera achieve just that with Scalped. The two creators feed off each other perfectly, making this one of the best Vertigo titles ever published.

If you are thinking of giving Scalped a shot, do yourself a favor and pick up Volume 1 and I think it will sell itself to you. If you have fallen behind on the title and are just wondering if it's worth going back and catching up, dont worry the book is just as awesome today as it was when it started.

First off, go read the other 8 volumes so you know what's going on. After that, check this one out! This is one of my favorite series at the moment and I can't speakly highly enough of it. I never read a series with characters as well fleshed out as this series. Also, the artwork is amazing! I love how gritty Guera inks his work. Sad to see it ending with volume 10 though, all good things must end though I suppose. This in particular was a good one as things start to escalate and the end is on the horizon.

Book was stuffed into box that was too small for it and arrived folded and creased.

The series itself remains stellar. One of the finest graphic stories I've ever read, but the low rating was for the shipping condition.
Every Scalped book reminds me of what a high quality series this is and how few there are that match this for intensity, action, character and plot, and "Knuckle Up", the ninth in the series, is no different. The various story threads all mesh together beautifully as Bad Horse finally squares up to Red Crow, Shunka gets his, Catcher is headed to the oblivion he wants, Poor Bear gets into more trouble, and the entire Rez seems ready to explode courtesy of Agent Nitz and Sheriff Karnow.

Unless you're a reader of this series (and if you're a reader then you're a fan) none of that will make sense but I urge you to seek out this comic book series - it is top class in every way. And if you're a reader, chances are you had this on pre-order rather than waiting to read a positive review - what, did you think Jason Aaron and RM Guera dropped the ball at this stage in the game? No way, they both know what they're doing. The only bad thing is having to wait for the final book to be released now.

One of the highlights of this book is a single shot look at historical Indian conflict in America where a host of brilliant artists draw the strip. They include Steve Dillon, Dean Haspiel, and Jill Thompson while Jock provides the amazing covers for each issue.

As usual Amazon have mislabelled the title of the book - it's "Knuckle Up", there's no "s".
