Wolverine Weapon X Vol. 1: Adamantium Men

Wolverine Weapon X #1–5 and Wolverine #73–74 by Jason Aaron, Ron Garney and Adam Kubert Because I've been enjoying Aaron's take on Wolverine in various mini-series and stories, I was keen to try his new series, especially because it would be about new villains and not be mired in continuity.…

Scalped: The Gnawing

Scalped #30–34 by Jason Aaron and RM Guera It's that time of the year for me to attempt to describe my appreciation for the brilliance that is Scalped. Because I'm slow on the uptake, I arrived late to this superb noir drama, so I'm reading it in trade paperback form;…

Comic Book Review – Scalped: Dead Mothers

Scalped #12–18 by Jason Aaron & RM Guera (with John Paul Leon and Davide Furno) Scalped has been my personal discovery of the year – a visceral, gritty, taut and gripping thriller set on a reservation in South Dakota, it continues to enthral and entertain with each collection. The first…

Scalped: Casino Boogie

Scalped #6–11 by Jason Aaron and RM Guéra Garth Ennis, in his introduction, asks the reader to blog about Scalped – it's taken me a long time, and I don't think my post will be of benefit, but I had to say my bit because this book is just really…
