Tonight's Frigg's Day Evening Altercation comes from Atlas Comics' SCORPION #1, which hit the spinner racks sometime in early 1975. This early Howard Chaykin creation shows that not only could Moro Frost (Scorpion's real name) lay down a beatdown, but his Girl Friday Ruby could kick badguy bootay quite capably as well. The Alex Toth influence shines through in these pages, I do believe. As always, click to see these grayscaled pages mo' bigger.
I wish Chaykin could see his way clear to once more doing some 30's pulp-style graphic novels, based on characters like the Scorpion, and his later revamp Dominic Fortune...or dare I say even more Times Squared. Guess nobody's interested, at least no one with money. Pity.
BAHLACTUS SAID KNOCK YOU OUT!
