Listen to the Allegheny Teen Center Reading Program #1 right now:

Hank 300 of the Allegheny Teen Center has teamed up with Nick Marino to launch a new show about books, comics, and more!

Scalpedcast pt 1

We’re kicking things off with an 11-part series of weekly podcasts focused on Scalped, the 60-issue Vertigo comic series by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guéra.

In our debut episode, we review Scalped Vol. 1: Indian Country a.k.a the first five issues of the comic book series.

Hank is reading Scalped as printed graphic novels while Nick is reading it digitally in single issues, so we’ve got different perspectives on the darkness of Guéra’s art and Lee Loughridge’s colors.

Hoka Hey

We dig deep into thematic elements and character relationships, leaving us asking a lot of questions. Is this story Native American crime noir or rezsploitation? Is Dash on a hero’s journey or a superhero’s journey? And will Red Crow be a redemptive character by the end of the tale?

NEXT: Scalped Vol. 2: Casino Boogie and a recap of the ATC’s Solstice Gala.
