BIG PREMIERE ISSUE - 36 PAGES!
Venus Rises: Series 2 continues the adventure, this time chronicling the lives of Terry Holden and Hollister Pelt III, as the civil war between Venus and Mars unfolds around them. The two story lines will eventually merge into one as events unfold.
Exordium #1 has two covers to choose from. The standard cover showcases the Venusian crew, while the alternate cover (limited quantity) is of the Mars' protagonist.
Terry Holden, a single mother and Captain of a Venusian salvage ship, wants nothing more than to make an honest living. Her son, Percival, can't wait to start his first year studying abroad at a prestigious Martian college. When the Venusian Resistance attacks a prominent corporate headquarters, Mars goes into lockdown. Percival is detained by Martian authorities and Terry quickly finds herself torn between staying neutral to protect her livelihood, or risk everything to save her son.
Hollister Pelt III is an Asset Protection Enforcer tasked to save the Shirokawa Corporation from a hostile takeover. For the last year, he's been analyzing the disappearance of the mining vessel Ikarus and finally believes he knows the whereabouts of its very lucrative cargo. But some high ranking officials in the Mars Defense Directorate don't want to see the Ikarus disaster resurrected... putting Hollister in their crosshairs.
