CBR Review: Scalped #55

I recently reviewed Scalped #55 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The first half of Scalped #55 is devoted to Dash and Snuka trying their best to rip each other apart with their bare hands. The dialogue is minimal, leaving R.M. Guéra’s art to carry the fight. His art is rough and messy, like always, and that conveys the passion and pure blood lust of the fight. These are men that hate one another, both skilled fighters, and both willing to do anything to kill the other. Guéra’s layouts are stacks of panels that overlap and are chaotic to a degree. It’s a dark, ugly fight that’s always moving and hard to follow at times. And that’s a good thing. The lack of clarity in some panels reinforces the nature of the fight. If we could see everything clearly, it would lose the energy and chaos that drive it."
