Scorpio Rose #1 - Marshall Rogers art & cover

Marshall Rogers
Scorpio Rose v1 #1, 1982 - Marshall Rogers teams up once again with writer Steve Englehart, creating two new occult characters. Scorpio Rose is a female gypsy turned sorceress while Doctor Orient follows the format of other seemingly ordinary men with mysterious and undefined powers. The lead story's two splashes are the highlight of the book, especially page 21's incorporation of a tarot card design. Tom Palmer, one of the industry's best inkers, has a style not quite compatible with Roger's pencils. Steve Leialoha's inks fare a bit better on the Dr. Orient tale, opening with a splash that is oddly similar to fellow artist Mike Grell. This is number 1 of 2 Scorpio Rose issues with R  ogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Rogers or Scorpio Rose issues. See also this blog's Rogers checklist or Top 10 Rogers comics.
