If you're not already reading Brian Wood's excellent series DMZ (and you damn well should be), now you have extra incentive to pick it up. This week's issue, DMZ #14, features an 8 page preview of SCALPED #1.
In case you haven't heard, SCALPED is a Native American crime drama set on a modern day Indian reservation. Issue #1, shipping January 3, 2007, is the first of a three part storyline called "Indian Country" that introduces readers to angry, young drifter turned tribal cop, Dash Bad Horse, and to aging, Red Power activist turned rez crime boss, Lincoln Red Crow. There'll be action aplenty, along with sex, meth, Kung Fu and a couple of murder mysteries.
I just finished writing issue #7 ("Down on the Killin' Floor") and artist R.M. Guéra just finished drawing #6 ("The Man Who Fights the Bull"), and we're only falling more and more in love with these characters. We can't wait for you to meet them.
