A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 196
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today continues SCALPED WEEK!!! All cool comic book moments from Jason Aaron and R. M. Guéra’s awesome series, Scalped!
We continue today with a tragic issue for our “hero”…
To set the scene, Dashiell Bad Horse has gone back to the reservation he grew up (and where he ran away from as a young teen) as an undercover FBI agent set to take down the chief of the reservation.
Dash is working as a member of the reservation police.
In any event, in Scalped #11, Dash’s mother, Gina Bad Horse, was murdered.
In this issue, Scalped #13, Dash is working on the murder of a prostitute (killed by Diesel) when he learns that HIS mother has been killed.
So many great little moments here – if it were not for the fact that we don’t see it, I’d say that the hamburger scene would be “the” moment.
As it were, I suppose it would have to be the ending as Dash reacts while the kids of the murdered woman react. Guéra handles the dialogue-less scene bee-you-ta-fully, and Aaron sets the whole scene up wonderfully.
