Meet The Skorpion!

Fellow COBRAS blogger Christopher Mills unveiled some awesome promotional artwork today for his new, very retro, Sixties-styled costumed adventurer Skorpion! As the "k" spelling suggests, Skorpion comes in the tradition of dark European comic book (fumetti neri) antiheroes like Diabolik and Kriminal. In addition to writing the Spy-Fi Channel blog, Mills is an accomplished comic book creator whose credits include the very cool hardboiled crime title Gravedigger with Queen & Country artist Rick Burchett. Burchett is also the co-creator and artist on Skorpion, and the man responsible for that artwork. Be sure to head on over to Spy-Fi Channel to see a larger version of that cool poster and learn more about the mysterious Skorpion!
