First, in a special stand-alone issue, we meet a couple of characters for the first and last time - an aging husband and wife who eke out a living in the harsh and rugged heart of the Badlands. Next, Red Crow sends his right-hand man Shunka to sort out a feud with a rival Native American casino, but now he's become embroiled in a murder mystery. He knows he should walk away, but something inside won't let him, which means things are about to get bloody. Then, a special Vietnam War flashback issue featuring a surprise main character, one whose story has never been told until now. Finally, in "Unwanted," Carol has a choice to make: should she keep her baby? While Dash and Carol both battle their inner demons, a surprising character makes his dramatic return to the reservation.

From Library Staff

Aaron's writing and Guerra's artwork make the pain, poverty, and struggles of Native American reservation life leap off the page. A very non-romantic snapshot, but with great characters and a locomotive story, this series is an excellent companion to Ian Frazier's "On The Rez."

Scalped is one of the best adult comics I've ever read and this collection, Rez Blues, is a real gut punch. Read Scalped if you like crime, noir, emotional stories, or just love comics.
