One by one, the Pope’s warrior monks fall to the Scorpion’s blade or desert their master. Feeling his enemy circling ever closer, Trebaldi grows desperate and hires Rome’s best paid assassins to go after him—and whomever else stands in his way. As the women in his life choose their destinies, an old enemy reappears to plague the Scorpion... or perhaps to bring him the truth at last, hidden behind his mask.
Hmm. What to think about while being tortured....women? That'll do!
Yes, our 'Tony Stark' of the swashbuckling fraternity has had his fair share of women. Women, fights and trouble. Oy, this boy needs to relax more. More twists and turns, deceit and betrayal and great art -almost a metaphor for the comics industry, huh?
And, yes, it says release date is November LAST year but I'm guessing I'm at the end of the reviewers list (judging by the newsletter...am I on that at all these days?) or there are delays in publishing. Lovely series whatever!
