artists. He thanks his success for his unique

All this comes together in Campbell's most successful
Danger Girl comic

Chase in action.
Like every Indiana Jones and James
Bond film, this story kicks off with a explosive
opening sequence in which protagonist "Abbey
Chase" chases down a golden skull, from a
villain named "Donavin", and is introduced
to the "Danger Girls" - a covert crime-busting
team lead by the mysterious Deuce (a witty caricature
of Sean Connery).
Abbey joins the Danger Girls in a battle against
the menacing "Hammer Empire". This Neo-Nazi
Empire is planning to take over the world by bringing
back their ubermensch champion that, according
to the legend, used to rule Atlantis. The Hammer
Empire has to reunite the 3 parts armor of this
mythical champion. They need to find his shield
of immunity, his helmet of second sight and his
sword of sovereignty.
Abbey Chase her knowledge of world history should
help the Danger Girls in finding the 3 armor pieces
before it gets in the hands of the Hammer Empire.
And so the Danger Girls' adventurous chase around
the globe begins.
Girl is heavily influenced by J. Scott
Campbell's love for entertainment movies. J. Scott
even mentioned that one of his most favorite and
influential films of all is Raiders
of the Lost Ark. So it's not much of a
surprise that his Danger
Girl comic books are a hybrid of and homage
to Charlie's Angels
and the Indiana Jones Trilogy.
