Interview in the New York Daily News

Beginner's luck
'Scalped's' Jason Aaron wrote his own ticket into comic books

By ETHAN SACKS
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Leaping over tall buildings in a single bound is old hat in the comic book industry. A fan off the street with almost no experience getting a gig writing for the publisher of Superman through an unsolicited email? Now, that's an impressive feat.

But that's just what writer Jason Aaron has done, first with his critically acclaimed Vietnam War mini-series, "The Other Side," and now with "Scalped," an ongoing series about a crime-ridden Indian reservation - both published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint.
