"Venture into the Abyss" (click on the thumbnail to see the larger pic)
Some background info:
The Venture Society is a group of explorers composed of Earth heroes, scientists and privatized soldiers. Some years ago, they discovered a massive artifact called the "Spindle", believed to be created by some long lost alien civilization. It is a vast cylinder, several hundred miles in diameter which stretches the entire length of the galaxy. The structure itself is a shell built around a cosmic string. The intense gravitational field of the string allows an orbiting vessel to reach speeds far in excess of light.
The Spindle is the largest object in the galaxy. Possibly the universe, and it is now where Venture bases their operations.
The primary members are:
-Jehanne Pucelle: once known as Joan of Arc. An immortal warrior and heroine who can heal any injury. Not even immolation can keep her down for long. She is a founding member.
-Doctor Infinity: an atlantean who fought alongside the Allies during WWII, and one of the greatest minds on Earth. He came out of a secluded retirement in his secret mountain fortress to join the Venture Society at jehanne's behest.
-Steel: a sentient android created by the now-dead hero once known as the Rifleman. This powerful living machine carries the famed weapon of his creator in memory of a fallen hero.
Solaris: One of the founding members of the Hypermen, she was thought long dead. But the nuclear-powered Hybrid had evolved into a higher form of life and became a living sun, roaming free among the stars.
--Dr. Renee Scott: granddaughter of Franklin Scott, the Rifleman. She bears her grandfather's stellar genius and knack with machines, and grew up alongside his android creation, Steel. She knows his systems better than anyone and he convinced her to join him in the venture Society.
-The Lamashtu: a demoness of tremendous power and ancient evil. She claims to be the heir to the power of the fallen mother of evil, Tiamat, and is a long-standing foe of Jehanne.
--Qingu: The monstrous son of Tiamat and consort to the Lamashtu. He is the general of the dark armies that comprise the Children of Tiamat.
In this picture, Lamashtu and Qingu have lured Jehanne and her teammates to the fould and berren planetoid which once served as a prison for Tiamat's sleeping form, and which is now the resting place of Great Wyrm's fossilized bones. The two demonic creatures are obviously spoiling for a fight, but even though the Venture Expedition Team outnumbers the monsters, Jehanne is wary. For with the cunning Lamashtu, nothing is ever as it appears..
