    About "Jason Aaron R.M. Guéra Garth Ennis"

    1. Jason Aaron R.M. Guéra Garth Ennis

      Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi autobiographical novel The Short Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today.Aaron s career in comics began in 2001 when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight page Wolverine back up story script The story, which was published in Wolverine 175 June 2002 , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors.In 2006, Aaron made a blind submission to DC Vertigo, who published his first major work, the Vietnam War story The Other Side which was nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Miniseries, and which Aaron regards as the second time he broke into the industry.Following this, Vertigo asked him to pitch other ideas, which led to the series Scalped, a creator owned series set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation and published by DC Vertigo.In 2007, Aaron wrote Ripclaw Pilot Season for Top Cow Productions Later that year, Marvel editor Axel Alonso, who was impressed by The Other Side and Scalped, hired Aaron to write issues of Wolverine, Black Panther and eventually, an extended run on Ghost Rider that began in April 2008 His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie in to the company wide crossover storyline along with a Secret Invasion with David Lapham in 2009.In January 2008, he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped Later that July, he wrote the Penguin issue of The Joker s Asylum.After a 4 issue stint on Wolverine in 2007, Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X Men Origins Wolverine Aaron commented, With Wolverine Weapon X we ll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre, In 2010, the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine He followed this with his current run on Thor God of Thunder.

    1. Jason Aaron has done it again. There is a masterpiece, a masterwork between the bindings of this 10 volume series. I can already say that after two volumes because damn what a fucking criminal dope this is to my poor, tired soul.Second volume of Scalped is a jumpy trip between the past and the present of multiple characters, which makes it challenging to follow, but will eventually pay off with smooth dollar bills. At least that is what my supernatural book-senses are whispering to me, and they [...]


    2. “Casino Boogie” takes place on opening night of the casino where we see the corruption and ugliness required to create such an expensive venture in a land locked remote location such as South Dakota. The bribing of officials, the hand-outs from the mob – Red Crow has had to get into bed with a lot of dangerous people who threaten to bring the whole scheme crashing down around him. And amidst all of this chaos is Gina Bad Horse, Dash’s mother, whose protest group against the casino has at [...]


    3. I liked the first one so much, I mitigated my expectations for this one because I didn't want to be disappointed but Wow. F-R-E-A-K-I-N' WOW. That was so cool. Vol. 2 expanded the scope of the story in every possible way, introduced new characters and made both Red Crow and Gina more relevant than ever to the storyline.If Vol.1 introduces a new paradigm, Vol.2 made it a can't miss.


    4. On second read, long after I finished this series, I find myself appropriately blown away by the mad, intricate storytelling in this volume - not to mention how evocative and deadly sharp the edge of reality is on display.Seeing one night from so many fragmented angles - like looking at the world through a cracked funhouse mirror - is a total trip, something that takes a helluva tightrope walk to pull off (especially trying to cart around the massive balls it took to attempt this book - let alon [...]


    5. Better than the first volume, but still has problems. At first, I hoped Aaron had given up on the constantly shifting plot: '2 hours ago', 'the next day', 'six days ago', but he soon starts up with it again. I'm not opposed to playing around with time in a story, but you've got to be good enough not to let it break the flow, and there has to be a good reason for it. So far, it just seems like an affectation. It's something a lot of unusual, conceptual comics have played with, but adopting the mo [...]


    6. ''We dared to oppose the corporate banks and the uranium miners and the Christian churches. And for that, the feds and some in our own tribal government wanted to see every single one of us either dead or in jail.''The casino is now opened, and yet everyone in town is frightened about the changes this implies. Despite Red Crow's sad story about how he became such an important leader on the Rez, we cannot forget all the murders and corrupted actions he took to get there. This volume doesn’t con [...]


    7. Jason Aaron'un "Scalped"ı gittikçe açılıyor, çok enteresan bir hikayenin başında olduğumuzu, henüz hiçbir şey görmediğimizi ortaya koyuyor. Her cilt daha da meraklanıyorum. Amerika'da oranın yerlisi, sahibi olup azınlık haline gelen kızılderili toplumu üzerine yazılmış en etkileyici kurgulardan biri olduğunu söyleyebilirim. Hele o Catcher Karaktere bağlanmaya başladım. Sevgili Egemen Görçek'in çevirisi öyküyü zorluyor. Nasıl mı? Çünkü gerçekten öykünün [...]


    8. If the first trade of Scalped was just calisthenics — lots of set-up, exposition, character study — then this is a full out marathon. I'm not sure what happened between those issues and these, because Scalped leaped from being a somewhat interesting book to completely compulsive. Jason Aaron is so completely confident in his storytelling abilities this time through and it really shows with fractured and labyrinthian storylines that answer all your questions in its own sweet time and in its o [...]


    9. As good as the first volume was, this one takes it up more than a few notches. On the opening night of Red Crow's casino, we're taken into the murky lives of most of our main characters, pulled far back into their pasts, and some dark secrets are revealed. I love how everyone is tied together in subtle ways that even they are unaware of sometimes. Really, this is some clever writing here-- Jason Aaron shows us key events that occurred when we weren't looking in volume one, as well as monumentall [...]


    10. While volume 1 just get all the sh*t started, volume 2 piles up all other sh*t and gives them to you in the worst crap plate of all time, but still like a hungry, hungry bad ocelot, you'll eat them all down to the last smudge. Why? Because it is just that good.Casino Boogie continues to impress as developments (and shocking surprises) continue to happen in Prairie Rose. The characters are as complicated, gray and human and badass all at the same time.


    11. The “Casino Boogie” story arc is much more episodic in nature, and aims to provide background and context to the ending of volume 1. Alternating between the 1970s and the present, volume 2 sheds light on Red Crow, Gina, Catcher, Diesel and Agent Nitz’s past. It also provides a window into Dino Poor Bear’s life on the reservation, which was one of the highlights from the book. Casino Boogie leaves us at the same place Indian Country did, but we now have a better understanding of the motiv [...]


    12. Despite the high quality of the writing and art, as well as the conscious efforts by the creative team behind Scalped to ensure that this book does justice to the American Indian community, Scalped has still faced criticism about the motives and legitimacy of its' portrayal of Native Americans. A Native blogger who goes by the name 'Ronin Redshade' reviewed Scalped rather harshly: wos-reviews/2007/ After reading Vol. 1 he was disgusted by "yet another non-Native writer telling it like it is on t [...]


    13. First off, I would like to express my confusion over why anyone thinks this was an improvement over the first one? Maybe marginally, but unless your mind is blown by unnecessary time jumps that don't develop anything then I don't really see where any of these not particularly specific praises are coming from.Once again, I was rather turned off by the over hyping introduction. Was this a seriously low point in comics? Do these super hero writers not read anything outside their genre?! I mean, I'm [...]


    14. Druhý díl utvrzuje v názoru, který si o této sérii uděláte na základě první knihy. V dobrém i zlém. Čili stále platí, že je to prvotřídní drsná a nekompromisní špinavá kriminálka z atraktivního prostředí se zajímavě se profilujícími charaktery i konflikty mezi nimi. Platí, že ne každému sedne "jednobarevný" coloring v rámci jednotlivých scén; sice jde o záměr, ale je to na překážku přehlednosti. Bohužel také stále platí, že to bije do očí šro [...]


    15. I've read a fair amount of Jason Aaron's work and in my opinion, his collaborations with R.M. Guéra rival anything he's done with any other artist. The noir feel is excellent and although Aaron spends a little too much time exploiting stereotypes in the book (and perhaps the entire series), the book works more often than not. I think one of the reasons readers seem disappointed with this volume is because it explores many other characters besides Dash from the first volume. We get lots of stori [...]


    16. Aaron is using the inner-city experience as a paradigm for the Rez, and they're not the same. Comic books simplify, but they don't always have to sensationalize. Typical that Ennis would like it, with his overheated anti-pc style. Sometimes offensive is just offensive!This all sucks, because there's clear intelligence and ingenuity here that is wasted.



    17. Just a little more background leading up to the events in the previous volume. An excellent representation of the social crisis many of the reserves are battling.


    18. I liked this better than the opening collection. More character development and more insight into their motivations. Still dark and bloody.


    19. Reprints Scalped #6-11 (August 2007-January 2008). Red Crow’s casino is opening and things are happening on the Rez. As Diesel and his crew try to hit the casino on its opening night, Dash tries to shut him down…but Diesel has a secret that both Red Crow and Dash don’t know. The mysterious Catcher reveals to Dash that he knows a secret about him, and Red Crow questions if his sacrifices will end up being worth the cost. As Gina works to clear the name of someone she helped put in jail, she [...]


    20. The storytelling device used confused the hell out of me. It was telling the story of the same time period but from several people's perspectives, so it kept restarting with a new character so you got his point of view/actions. I was REALLY confused for most of it and couldn't follow. There weren't enough visual cues or something. The art is also very dark, and it was often hard to see what the hell was going on in a panel.




    21. The tension mounts on this dirty series and we learn all about DIESEL ENGINE, the white kid who always wanted to be an injun!


    22. I preferred volume I. The disjointed storytelling got confusing and took me out of the narrative here. Some flashbacks and flashforwards had time bubble indicators but others didn't.



    23. Dosť drsné, temná krvavá grafika, kriminálny príbeh. Prostredie indiánov pre mňa veľká neznáma a predsa zaujalo.


    24. I find reviews for a series usually go up because the people who didn't like volume one get weeded out and what you have left are people who already bought into the series. Since I received the first 4 volumes together I decided to slog through them all and will review them one by one. So how did this fare with respect to the first volume? Well it was better but my complaints about the first volume still stand here and I can add to them. First, Aaron decides to jump around in time. Done well thi [...]


    25. One might question my decision to continue reading a series of which I so thoroughly disliked the first volume, but it came so heavily recommended that I’d already bought the first four volumes, and it is a quick read. This volume, for whatever reason, actually worked more for me — maybe it was the fact that the narrative was actually told with a keen eye, keeping the main plot (with plenty of flashbacks) centered on one day, the opening of Chief Red Crow’s casino. The characters themselve [...]


    26. Following up on a strong opening volume, this second one keeps the pedal to the metal. Dash is still kicking ass, after we find out his little secret at the end of Vol. 1. However, there are a few things he doesn't know about some of the ass he's kicking, that might be important for him to find out sooner than later. He also has a run in with Catcher, the drunken man with visions who used to run with Dash's mother and Red Crow. Red Crow's Casino finally opens, and there's definitely some kinks t [...]
