A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 199
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 concludes SCALPED WEEK!!! All cool comic book moments from Jason Aaron and R. M. Guéra’s awesome series, Scalped!
I end the week on two scenes from the finale of the second year of Scalped (#24), spotlighting Chief Red Crow.
So Chief Red Crow has just likely brought a gang war upon his reservation by arresting the representative of the Asian mob staying at his casino (and killing his two bodyguards), and in doing so, he has violated the terms of his task to watch over the “soul bundle” of his old friend, Gina Bad Horse (to do so, he would have had to live a pure and virtuous life for a year), so how does Red Crow deal with it all?
First, he thinks back 17 years earlier, when he first ran for tribal council and then he reflects upon his life today…
“The” moment is probably the ending – Aaron manages to work TWO great endings into a single book!
This ended the second year of Scalped, and so far, the third year has been just as good! This week’s issue has a moment in there from Red Crow that is definitely a contender for this list!
Anyhow, I hope you enjoyed this week of Scalped moments and I also hope you go out and buy some Scalped trades (or issues, either or)!!! I think it was the best comic of 2008, and I’m sure it’ll be up there in 2009, as well!
