I'm in for the first few issues. A southern tale told by two southerners. Should be good :wishluck:

I am 100% behind this already. The fetishisation of the South in fiction continues!

 

Seriously though, after Scalped I will pretty much read any non-superhero book that Jason Aaron writes.

I am so pumped for this book. I read the first issue at Jason Aaron's table at ECCC, and it is fantastic. Really looking forward to a long, amazing ride on this one.

 

The RM Guera variant cover to issue 1 is just amazing. Pity it is wasted on a Third Eye variant. IMO, easily the best of the bunch:

Great looking cover. I'm definitely getting that one. Are there a bunch of variants or just a few ?

Off the top of my head, Forbidden Planet, DCBS, 3rd Eye...so at least four?

 

I am not speculating on this one at all, as I don't think this one is catching anyone off guard, and variants always dilute the market. I am following this one solely as a fan, and for a good read.

Yeah, I'm approaching it the same way. Its hard to imagine the print run being anything less than huge. Still, another heavy hitter to add to an already powerhouse Image lineup.

Was going to say the same earlier. Looking forward to a good read :)

 

It's going to be highly anticipated so another top heavy release combined with a variant festival. Granted it might get pumped up a little to start with but short to mid term there won't be much for speculators to enjoy.

Great creative team, great concept. I'm certainly on board. Been excited since as soon as it was announced.

Me, too. I picked up Aaron's first published work, THE OTHER SIDE, on a whim when it was released. Blew me away. However, after trying SCALPED for 12 issues or so, I gave up...just didn't grab me. I'm in the minority, I know. Big fan of his PUNISHERMAX run, though.

If this is Scalped for Rednecks, then count me in for the long haul :wishluck:
