First printing of this original Marvel graphic novel.
From the dust jacket:
Scorpio. The zodiacal sign of the scorpion. And to the premier spy in America, Nicholas Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., the word has a deeper, more sinister meaning. It was the codename taken by his late evil brother, Jake, to personify Jake's world-conquering ambitions. Yet before Fury can begin to deal with the mystery of his maniacal sibling, he must first contend with the monstrous power of the man who has taken an oath to slay him - the murderous mutant known as Wolverine!
Author Archie Goodwin has crafted a nerve-shattering scenario with a climax so riveting, so unexpected, it will take your breath away. This is a thriller crammed with the twists and turns worthy of Ian Fleming himself. And Goodwin's effortless prose and penetrating insight into Marvel creations Nick Fury and Wolverine make the Scorpio Connection a feast for the espionage-famished.
Likewise, artist/designer Howard Chaykin bursts the bonds of the medium as he delivers his most inspiring work to date. His pacing and graphic gymnastics form a perfect complement to the scripting prowess of Goodwin. Chaykin's page compositions, unrivaled in the field, make each panel a contemporary work of art.
Two of the most respected talents in comics have combined forces to present The Scorpio Connection. It's bound to be the covert classic of the year. Don't miss it - no matter what your sign.
