For those of you whop don’t follow us on Twitter (shame on you!) or don’t have a Twitter (good for you!), you missed the news that we scored quite the coup yesterday. While taking a day off from touring mc chris put it out there that he wanted to play Red Dead Redemption if any of his fans in the Cincinnati area were going to get a copy. Sure, we’re a little outside that area but we let him know that we had it and would be more than willing to let him come and play it on our 70″ projector. He agreed and we got a chance to watch as he rode and shot his way through Rockstar’s newest masterpiece. Seriously, this game is as great as mc was gracious and genuine. It was a fun time, and hopefully we’ll get a chance to hang out with him again soon (some of us are even going to his show at The Basement in Columbus tonight at 7pm. If you’ve never been to an mc chris show, you are missing out!

I like messed up stories. It’s a fact. Any media that has story that throws you right turn straight into a wall is right up my alley. And Scalped is a pretty standard, messed up story. The series is set on the fictional Prairie Rose Indian Reservation in modern-day South Dakota; the story is concerned with organized crime as well as the culture and living conditions of the Oglala Lakota living on the reservation.
The plot of the comic is partly inspired by Leonard Peltier, a Native American activist who was arrested for the murder of two FBI agents in a reservation shootout in 1975.
Dashiell Bad Horse is an FBI agent, sent back to the reservation he left years ago to investigate Chief Lincoln Red Crow, chief of the Oglala tribe, chief of the local police, and a wealthy mob boss. Red Crow is about to open a $97 million dollar casino, and is anxious to clean up the tribe’s public image, not to mention taking out competition for his illegal interests. Did I mention that Bad Horse is “involved” with Red Crow’s estranged daughter, Carol? Did I also mention that Bad Horse develops quite a……maybe I shouldn’t drop too many spoilers. But it’s like that. Just when you think you have a good grasp on the situation on the ‘rez, something happens and/or a new element gets added to the mix that makes you put the book down, put your hands up and say “How did this happen?!?”
Double crosses, love triangles, drugs, corruption, greed, trampled dreams and the stark feeling of hopelessness rises off the page as you read the stories of the residents of the reservation. A story arc involving Dino Poor Bear, A young man struggling to keep his head (and his family’s) above water, is a particularly interesting and heavy tale. Plagued by drugs and having to provide for his family by working at Red Crow’s casino as a janitor, you really feel the weight of life on Poor Bear’s back as the pages turn. Reading as he ponders life outside the ‘rez and making good for his daughter makes you wince more then once. The side stories involving Moses Johnson and Mr. Brass are also very interesting and worth checking out.
R. M. Guéra provides the art for the book and it compliments the tone of the story perfectly. Gritty, sometimes blurred and smeared and the use of browns and darker hues really accentuate the overbearing depression that coats everyone’s outlook and the look and feel of living in the desert. Wide open landscapes and character designs are in step with the feel of the book. It feels oppressive and bleak just re
The series is really geared towards mature fans of crime stories and action. Most defiantly not for the kids. And it so happens that we have all the currently available trade paperbacks in stock as of the writing of this. If it so happens that we are out of any of these great books when you show up in the store, our friendly staff can special order them for you.
