There's a great review of SCALPED #1 by Sean Fahey at Rack Raids. He sums the book up better than I could:
"Some of the solicitations for Scalped, and a few of the reviews, have nutshelled this book by referring to it as “The Sopranos” on a modern day Indian reservation, a description which I think sells this book short. (Don’t worry, I’m not going to go on a “Sopranos” rant). Yes, Scalped is – among other things – a crime (though not strictly criminal) book. But it’s also a book about history, heritage, family and the social issues facing what is, essentially, a third world nation sitting smack dab in the middle of our country. The number of diverse (and diverging) points of views and perspectives in this book is astounding. If anything, with the interaction between the criminal and social narrative and thematic elements, Scalped is “The Wire” on a modern day Indian reservation."
