The Story.

Scorpio is a diverse mystical urban fantasy comic about the Zodiac, and 12 mystical relics that are affixed to each of the 12 signs, and grants the wielders of those weapons powerful abilities.

The story revolves around Danny Shim, a Chinese-American mid-20’s millionaire Scorpio whose family legacy traditionally ties him to the him the Scorpio relic. However, in a the pursuit of fortune and some semblance of success in a “normal” life, Danny ignores the call to be the weapon’s next herald.

Unfortunately for him, destiny doesn’t take too kindly to being ignored, and Danny quickly finds himself caught in the middle of a secret war that’s been raging since the beginning of time. He meets other heralds (relic wielders) such as Shakti Rai,  Herald of Libra, and Bonnie Bourdeaux, Herald of Capricorn, and learns why it is so important that he joins this fight.

The Inspiration.

Scorpio was created with the intent of exploring a realm of fantasy that exists at least partially on our own plane of existence. That element being of course, astrology.

On a daily basis, millions around the world check their horoscopes, some out of curiosity, others with a profound faith in the stars. For millennia, even back to the days of the Lascaux or even Old Sumeria, we’ve sculpted out shapes of animals in the stars and called them the Zodiac.

It was that wonder entertained the notion that those stars held some kind of power unknown to us. And thus was birthed the idea of Scorpio- a comic that explores the amalgam of personality structures, while implementing the vast diversity of all people in goal to create a story that tackles the unknown.
