You don't have to look too hard to see the prevalence of difficult father-son relationships in the work of Jason Aaron. In Scalped with R.M. Guera, Dashiell Bad Horse was adrift in a sea of father figures, unable to choose his own path and incapable of avoiding the same fates that befell the father who left him. In 2014, Aaron launched Southern Bastards with Jason Latour, about a conflicted man who returns to the home of his dead father, a legendary lawman; and Men of Wrath with Ron Garney, is about a father-to-be on the run from his own dad, a hired killer.
Despite the prevalence of the topic in comics, Aaron has carved out his own niche when it comes to father-son relationships, with an unflinching perspective that rings truer than most.
You may remember WGN America as the national cable channel where you could watch The Bozo Show, find out about Chicago's often-terrible weather, and watch a huge number of Cubs games, but it's soon to become a channel with original, hour-long dramas, just like every other cable channel on TV. Among its upcoming shows is a TV adaptation of Scalped, the hugely acclaimed Vertigo series by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera with covers by Jock that follows FBI agent Dashiell Bad Horse as he goes undercover to bring down a crime ring at the Native American Reservation where he grew up.
Doug Jung, writer of the movie Confidence and quite a few episodes of the undercover-cop series Dark Blue, will write the show's script.

Of all the news to come out of Comic-Con last month, word that Jason Aaron and R.M. Guéra's Vertigo crime series Scalpedwould end in October with issue #60 stood out as a serious bummer amid some otherwise very cool announcements, including that Aaron is set to helm Incredible Hulk at Marvel starting in October.
There are so many reasons to love Jason Aaron's Vertigo comic Scalped, a brutal crime drama about a man who returns to the Native American reservation where he grew up as an undercover FBI agent on a mission. There's the "why didn't I think of that" awesomeness of the concept, the Elmore Leonard-esque dialogue, the richness and compl
You've heard of shelf porn? How about bathroom porn? Or is that already a thing? Anyway, Los Angeles film editor and podcaster Aaron Brewer has given new meaning to one or all of those terms with his astonishingly geeky bathroom, which is covered wall-to-wall with pages from the first 20 issues of Jack Kirby and Stan Lee's Fantastic Four and the covers of Scalped by Jock.Brewer will be known to those ComicsAlliance readers who've listened to The Meltcast, the official podcast of the great Hollywood comics retailer, Meltdo
One of the great comic book traditions is the notion of the team-up. Sometimes that means a strong collaboration between creators, while other times it refers to an alliance between unlikely superheroes
It's not as if we haven't seen action figures based on Vertigo Comics characters in the past, but it's certainly a rarer practice than, say, the reproduction of your many Wolverine, Spider-Man, Superman and Batman toys - which is exactly why Jason Aaron must be pretty thrilled that someone thought of "Scalped" during a custom toymaking venture
The end of the year is upon us, and as the old man that is 2009 hobbles towards the finish line, we're taking stock of the best comics to hit the shelves in the last 12 months. And by comics, we mean everything: superhero books, indies, manga, singles, graphic novels -- we love it all
If yesterday's preview of Vertigo's new Crime line in Playboy wasn't enough for comic fans, it looks like the gentleman's magazine has plenty more in store for the comics-inclined audience with a six-page comic book adaptation of a scene from "Inglourious Basterds," Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Nazi-killing opus.
