I say this because I've read dozens of books and hundreds of newspapers about Indians over a period of two decades, and visited dozens of reservations. Yet I feel I barely know enough to write about Indians authentically. Aaron hasn't been working on SCALPED long enough to do that kind of research, and it shows.
"He was hoping we could put him in the book and kill him off," says Aaron, laughing.
To preempt Aaron's possible comeback, I suggest you read my positive review of Oni Press's SKINWALKER. Set on a modern-day rez, this crime series is an example of how to do such series right. It's proof that I'm not biased against all crime stories, but only stereotypical ones.
On the other hand, I congratulate Aaron for his meteoric rise to success. I'm glad he chose to do a series on today's Indians and give them some exposure. It's let us talk about what's good and bad in Indian comics.
