It’s the high concept you didn’t see coming: a young heiress discovers that her mother used to be a CIA operative and uses her inherited fortune, fashion empire and martial arts skills to fight crime on a global scale without anyone noticing. Welcome to the world of Scarlett Couture.

The new series, launching this fall from Titan Comics, is the creation of Des Taylor, an illustrator for the likes of FHM, Cosmopolitan and Citroen, amongst many others. Taylor also is the brains behind Despop, which promotes itself with the motto “Bringing some chicks into comics” -- through projects like Scarlett Couture.
