Scalpedcast pt 7
In Between the Panels we take a look at artist Danijel Žeželj, who’s managed to best match Guéra’s style out of any other contributing artist on Scalped.
In Down on the Rez we explore the developments of Volume 7. Shunka’s sexual reveal gets trumped by more extreme violence, while Dash’s daddy — Wade — returns to the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation.
We also ponder the budding relationship between Carol and Granny. The elder sage has taken in the roustabout young woman due to her pregnancy. But can wisdom truly trump addiction? (ANSWER: Abortion.)
Finally, in Smoke Signals we look ahead to the future, asking questions like: Has Dino’s character arc fizzled out? What’s up with Catcher and Falls Down? And is there an inevitable conservative undercurrent in American comic books?
