The iron fist of Trebaldi's monks is still strangling Rome, but such an army is expensive. To pay his men before their loyalty begins to slip, the Pope must rely on the financial assistance of European monarchs - and a large sum in gold is coming to Rome. But such a convoy is tempting to many! Trebaldi, the Nine Families, thieves and conspirators... And all figure the can use the Scorpion against each other to obtain what they want.
The Scorpion: Angel's Shadow v. 6 Paperback edition by Stephen Desberg
Stephen Desberg has also written the "I.R.$." series (published by Cinebook), "L'Etoile du Desert" (Dargaud) and "Les Immortels" (Glenat). Enrico Marini has published strips in the Swiss newspaper La Chronique de Geneve and collaborated with Desberg on "L'Etoile du Desert."
The Scorpion, whose mother Trebaldi burnt at the stake for loving a man of the cloth, discovers that his father was the murdered Pope. When Trebaldi addresses a crowd at the end of the mourning period, the Scorpion is there to tell the truth about how the Pope died. Trebaldi claims that the sacred cross of St Peter appeared in his castle.
Rome is dying, the symbol of civilization falling, the empire burning. Hidden from massacres and looting, a strange meeting is held by nine families who share the Roman Empire. To retain their power, they decide to support a new religion - Christianity - as well as its representative, the pope. But who are these 9 mysterious families?
Betrayed by the beautiful Ansea Latal, the Scorpion has been captured by the Turks. But he cannot afford to tarry: Rochnan and his monks are close on his tail, Ansea is on her way to Cappadocia to find the true cross of Saint Peter, and, back in Rome, Trebaldi is preparing his reign of terror.
