    Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi autobiographical novel The Short Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.Aaron s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight page Wolverine back up story script The story, which was published in Wolverine 175 June 2002 , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the second time he broke into the industry.Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC Vertigo.In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008 His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie in to the company wide crossover storyline along with a Secret Invasion with David Lapham in 2009.In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker s Asylum.After a 4 issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X Men Origins Wolverine Aaron commented, With Wolverine Weapon X we ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre, In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine He followed this with his current run on Thor God of Thunder.

    In this fifth book in the series, we are introduced to a con-man who hustles blackjack, we learn more about FBI Agent Nitz, there's background on Diesel's troubled childhood, and Bad Horse's heroin addiction gets worse as he's roped into a heist to save Red Crow discovering that he's an undercover FBI Agent. And the killer of Gina Bad Horse is revealed. There's a lot going on in "High Lonesome" and it's definitely the best in the series so far with revelations and action coming thick and fast. T [...]

    Wow. Jason Aaron has already made it to my top 5 comic writer list, and with this kind of work, he could make the jump to favourite of ALL genres. This is crime noir that sits comfortably alongside Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, and in his own medium, Ed Brubaker. The best noir ironically requires shades of grey; manyt quite 50but a lot. Aaron has a cast in this series we have been getting to know, but here in this volume, we delve into the back stories of some of the more important members w [...]

    That was some of the most compelling storytelling I've read in *long* while. Why can't all graphic novels be that good? Wow, at this rate Aaron's going to ruin me for 90% of the decent authors out there.Aaron comes up with character flaws and the perspective to explain (even glorify) them so good that I actually want to meet these disgusting excuses for humanity. The secondary characters featured in this book are amazing - makes me wonder how many personality disorders Aaron is carrying around t [...]

    Oh my gods!!! This may be one of the best noir adventures I have ever read!!! Just when you think you have reached the nadir, the author takes you to a darker hole! Yet, i still hold hope for Dash's redemption. Onward and downward fellow travelers!

    Díl, který to má těžké. Díky epizodickému soustředění se na dosud opomíjené (ovšem zásadní) postavy jim sice dodává tolik potřebnou hloubku (čímž se zvyšuje kvalita série), ale zároveň úvodní uvozovací číslo nasadí tak vysokou laťku a posadí sázky tak vysoko, že finální vyústění je No, neuspokojivé. Osobně bych navíc zdejší "originy" raději viděl rozprostřené mezi více knih než takto pohromadě. Speciálně motivace "svině s FBI odznakem" Nitz [...]

    High Lonesome isn't that action-packed as the 4th volume. But hell, this is surprisingly good as things turn out to be evil I cannot even root for even one character (except you Officer Falls Down, you are one helluva good cop). Dash and his drug addiction, Nitz and his vendetta, Diesel the 1/16 Kickapoo sociopath.Volume 5 is no midseasom finale. It is a necessary motivation for the worse events to come.

    3.5 stars. This is a bit of an up and down volume. The chapter featuring Falls Down, Belcourt and Catcher is exceptionally good, and reveals important back story information. Diesel and Nitz's chapters are both interesting, and help to flesh out both characters. The arc featuring Dash and the "mystery" guests feels underdeveloped, and the ending stretches the limits of realism and "believability". Not a bad volume by any stretch, but not the series' strongest.

    My grandaddy was full blooded Cherokee that come outta the Smokey Mountains in eastern Tennessee and ended up setting himself down outside of Memphis in a town called Ripley right around 1940. He'd already had one family on a reservation out east and just up and left them to fend for themselves before he took up with my granma and started a whole new family out there in the cotton picking fields of western Tennessee. He never talked about like on the reservation, never made a mention of his prev [...]

    Jason Aaron continues to blow me away with this book. It is one of the most enjoyable stories I have ever read, populated by characters that I hate or pity or fear. It is the proverbial train wreck that I can’t stop watching. Everyone here is wretched, addicted, disgusting, evil. We are watching them destroy themselves and each other. We are compelled by this story, drawn into this world of horrible crimes. And there is no stylish or romanticized violence. It’s brutal. There’s nothing cool [...]

    Much of the best crime fiction of the last decade or so has appeared in graphic novel form rather than simply in prose. Scalped is at the very top of that particular phenomenon.This volume is made up of five vignettes each focusing on a different character from the series (four regular characters and one new one). Many big mysteries are solved, almost casually. Two of the most opaque characters are given some depth. And a heist attempt on the casino gives some narrative umph that isn't driven en [...]

    Good grief this is a great series! This volume like the four previous was almost impossible for me to put down. Dash isn't the only great character, every character in the series brings something entertaining & twisty to the table. I'm just glad this isn't a brand new series because I'd hate to have to wait to see how this is gonna end. Gonna start Vol. 6 immediately. Highly recommend.

    Catcher says, "Hookah Hey Motherfuckers".I had to see meaning of this which meant "A good day to die".I really love this series.

    Jason Aaron continues to tell the stories of The Rez and in this collection we get to see the focus shift to different characters who are almost unknowingly intertwined. The story is always depressing. The characters are sad. They populate a world with little joy. Aaron captures this so well but I could never binge read this series for fear of committing suicide, its so dark. The art was by a handful of artists and they all handled the gritty atmosphere well. Overall, another slice of sadness pe [...]

    This series is amazing. Deep, real, intense, emotionally crushing

    3.5 stars rounded up.

    Trošku mi to začína vadiť to neustále skákanie medzi dátumami. Na každej druhej strane iný rok.

    Oh my god, did this graphic novel make me cry and laugh. Really, really well-done story by Israeli artist Modan, about a young woman and her grandmother going to Warsaw to find out about a property her grandmother's family owned before the war. There is also some romance, an annoyingly boorish acquaintance, and a very sly sense of humor. I wish I still taught Jewish-themed comic book classes so I could force people to read this.

    Mark Desrosiers
    Here the plot doesn't move forward: mostly flashbacks and backstories of the nastiest characters we've seen trying to slit each other's throats (plus one new, shrewdly drawn trickster). But wow, the hero we once loved has fallen straight into hell, and the blond bully we still hate gets a squalid, tearjerker origin story. I'm still astounded by how this series keeps pushing the noir-crime boundary forward, past sun-drenched Indian territory into a new midnight of crushed seventies idealism, prim [...]

    It took me forever to finish this volume, and it's not like it's difficult reading. I may stop reading the series, even though I've already bought the next volume. I do think High Lonesome revealed something to me though about the series: the true wellspring of most that has been good about it is the illustration of R.M. Guera, not the words of Jason Aaron. Of the five issues collected in High Lonesome, two have "guest illustrators." These two issues are completely boring, lacking in anything th [...]

    I was introduced to Scalped when a man came up to me at the Mid-Manhattan Library and told me I would like it because it was "real and violent". I thanked him but it wasn't what I was looking for at the time. A few weeks later, I did look for it and I am glad I remember that man's suggestion. "High Lonesome" is the first book I've read in the series. It is actually the fifth book in the series. I am sure that I am going to go back and read numbers one to four, but it's because I want to not beca [...]

    This volume is mostly a series of vignettes focusing on characters who have been, up until now, peripheral. We get a look at the messed-up childhood of Diesel, the insanely violent white Indian-wannabe. We learn what tragic forces push Agent Nitz to seek revenge on Red Crow and all the other former Indian radicals, and, in a story driven mostly by Officer Falls Down, we finally learn who killed those Fed in the '70's, and who killed Gina Bad Horse. It's a shocking revelation I personally didn't [...]

    When i was a kid, i looked forward to the color comics in the Sunday newspaper, especially on rainy fall mornings like this. As a high-school freshman paperboy (still a kid), i dreaded delivering the Sunday editions on mornings like this, but at least i'd alway have a few envelopes with the customers' weekly payment to spend on a half-dozen donuts that i'd scarf down while watching World Wrestling Federation "bouts," followed by reading the sports section of the paper and the color comics.Today [...]

    Ije the Devourer of Books
    Definitely graphic noir at it's best!! The series continues to be gritty, dark and violent with new characters arriving on the Rez with their own special brand of mayhem, murder, cheating and violence.This is a story that explores chaos and violence and how the ripple effect of these can ride for years on the waves of vengeance.It is a blood thirsty story and there are no heroes here, just a group of flawed people who have tried to make life work for them by using tools and means that in themsel [...]

    I Didn't really know much about SCALPED other than it might be film noirish, and featuring Native Americans. Can't really say the art attracted me at first either, it looked kind of uber-generic. But as a crime fiction-film noir buff, that being my favorite genre, i decided to randomly buy a TPB. I went for the issue count middle of pack, which was around this volume. It helped to join in progress in an arc introducing a classic card counter, drifter type who eventually stages a casino heist. I [...]

    High Lonesome didn't grip me the way the last two volumes did, but I still enjoyed it. It continues the trend of telling the backstories of unpleasant characters. Mostly, that has worked to leave me surprisingly sympathetic toward people I didn't like at all before. I like that a lot. It's one of my favorite things in a story. In High Lonesome, Aaron succeeded in engendering that sympathy in me for Diesel, but not so much for Nitz. I still don't like him or understand him. In any case, you can't [...]

    This volume has a lot of backstory, histories of many of the players. We finally find out who killed those two FBI agents way back when, and how the relationships were tangled so greatly among the Dog Soldiers of fictional reservation when the killings happened.So much killing though! It's hard to read more than one of these in a sitting.I still recommend the series, for the intrigue and insight into modern day Rez life for Native Americans. (again, I'm not a Native American from a reservation, [...]

    Bill Williams
    This was a decent but ultimately a let down. The lead narrative was fleshed out a bit with everyone except Dash Bad Horse getting a time to shine. There were a few fill in artists to go with the fill in stories. But the lead team did something on the art chores that was irritating. The signature of the creators was dropped in on a few of the art pages. By making their names a part of the design of the page, it snaps the reader out of the flow of the story. It's almost as bad as wedging the names [...]

    A lot of background again .is time the new ruffian on the block Diesel. I could have given it a 3/5 cos now the story and the issues seem to have start to fall for a formula until issue 5 when all the earlier 4 issues come together to tell us why we went through the pains of reading them at all.The moment in the movie hall where you realize what it's all summing up to be. Again - damn good stuff

    Seth
    This is seriously one of the best comics EVER! I get more wrapped up in this world every time I turn the page. It's incredibly dark and depressing. But you want to root for these characters, no matter how bad they may seem at first. You always find out a little more about how they made it to that point and you realize that they are doing their best in a bad situation. Now the only thing I can truly hope for is that Bad Horse gets off the junk and gets his shit together. I miss that dude!
