CBR Review: Scalped #34

I recently reviewed Scalped #34 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The finale to 'The Gnawing' is an example of when winning can feel a lot like losing. Red Crow and Dash Bad Horse both walk out of this comic in one piece, their respective problems solved for now, but the solutions were ones that brought both characters down to lower depths than we’ve seen before. And, if you’re a regular reader of Scalped, you’ll know just how low that is. For those unaware, both men have killed before, both men have shown an ability for cruelty to those they love, and, to make matter worse, both men are in desperate situations here. Like no other issue, Scalped #34 pairs the two, having each reflect the other, and hitting that point home in the final two pages in a stunning revelation."
