You Gotta Sin to get Saved

12 Dec

So in the introduction to “High Lonesome” (book 5 of the ”Scalped” series,) Jason Starr compares William Faulkner’s fictional Yoknapatawpha County in Mississippi to Jason Aaron’s creation of the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation in the Dakotas. As if I wasn’t completely sold on the series before!!

I just got the 8th installment of the “Scalped” series called “You Gotta Sin to get Saved” and I am having a hard time getting off the couch for even the most important errands. It is so gritty and raw that the fact that it is NOT real is the odd part. Phenomenal work by Jason Aaron, and as always R.M. Guera’s graphics are absolutely stunning.

If you don’t read comics- I really don’t care.  This is an excellent novel with a compelling story and I encourage you to get out and do something about it (read it!)
