SCALPED #7 on shelves now

SCALPED #7, originally uploaded by Jason Aaron.

"Casino Boogie" part two of six focuses on Chief Red Crow, on what should be the happiest night of his life. His dream has been realized. The Crazy Horse Casino is finally open for business. So how come he can't stop thinking about all the horrible shit he had to do along the way to get to where he's at? And what sort of trouble does he see on the horizon, courtesy of a particularly brutal Hmong street gang? Answers to all of those questions, plus fellatio, this week in SCALPED.

The title to this issue's story, "Down on the Killin' Floor," comes from a song by blues legend Howlin' Wolf:

"I should'a quit you, long time ago.
I should'a quit you, baby, long time ago.
I should'a quit you, and went on to Mexico...

Lord knows, I should'a been gone
Lord knows, I should'a been gone
And I wouldn't've been here, down on the killin' floor."

The issue's original title was that of another song, the bluegrass classic, "Muleskinner Blues."

Thanks for the support, guys. Hopefully, SCALPED will continue to get better with each issue, because I definitely feel like the best is yet to come.

We won't be seeing Mr. Brass until the next arc, titled "Dead Mothers." But it'll be worth the wait. Thanks.
