A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 197
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!
As I went through my Scalped collection, I realized that I had made a pretty horrible miscalculation. You see, I have a week here for Scalped moments, but Scalped just has way too many good moments for me to possibly do a representative week’s worth of moments. For instance, the Dead Mothers arc is FILLED with them. So since I can’t fit them all in, I won’t. I’m just going to show you three more cool comic book moments from Scalped to finish the week, and I’ll return occasionally to feature other cool comic book moments from the book.
Today we look at probably the most hardcore ending Scalped has ever had (and the book is not exactly butterflies and rainbows, ya know?)
Davide Furnò did a few fill-in issues, including this issue, Scalped #20, which is the finale to a short story about Dash reeling from the events of Dead Mothers (where his mother was murdered and he solves the murder of a prostitute, but the murderer is Diesel, who Dash can’t touch due to Diesel working for the FBI – then Dash sees the child of the prostitute attempt to kill Diesel himself, only for Diesel to kill the young boy instead).
Dash has been seeking refuge in the arms of Carol Bad Crow, daughter of Chief Bad Crow. She, though, has her own issues, including a heavy duty drug addiction (this arc shows her background and the tragedy SHE’s gone through in her life) that Dash does not seem to really understand.
Well, after a confrontation with Diesel, we get the following…
Jason Aaron doesn’t mess around, does he?
“The” moment, of course, is that twisted ending.
Furnò does a nice, moody job filling in for Guéra.
