Captain's Library: ATARI FORCE "Deadly Orbit"

In the year 2005, the Atari Institute is infiltrated by a black-clad female martial-artist with an Irish accent.
Meanwhile, Astronaut Martin Champion and Dr Lucas Orion are summoned to the Institute by Assistant Director Lydia Perez.
En route, Champion tells Dr Orion how he met Perez years ago...
We'll find out more next week, when Champion and Orion enter...
Plotted by Roy Thomas & Gerry Conway with Conway doing the script, this first "issue" of Atari Force (published in 1982) introduces us to the devastated Earth of 2005 and the group that will eventually become "Atari Force", with flashbacks about most of them.
Illustrated by Ross Andru (pencils) and Dick Giordano & Mike DeCarlo (inks), the premiere had a slick, clean, highly-professional look.
Join us next week as we probe further into both the fictional and real-life worlds of Atari Force!
