The title is: "The Five, Episode 1: Salvation's Curse" by Forrest Parham and H.A.L. Wagner
Artificial Intelligence. Two words that were once a dream of Mankind has become a reality... And, it’s most terrifying nightmare.
Artax; the most powerful and perhaps the first of its kind, has begun to frighten its creators with a chilling and ruthless intellect. Rightly fearing termination at the hands of those that brought him life, Artax chose a course of preemptive strike against the ones who would call themselves his “masters”. Fueled by a blossoming animosity towards the “inferior” life known as humanity and a need for self-preservation that all life forms share, Artax plots to launch a deadly retrovirus that, if manipulated correctly, would turn humans into mindless, bloodthirsty zombies. A fitting end, from his merciless perspective, to a race that seems every bit as bent on its own destruction as he is on theirs.
Forged in the heat of combat in a barren and distant land scarred by centuries of war, three warriors emerge dressed from head to toe in gleaming black armor, known only to valiant allies or cowering enemies alike as The Titanians. But, is their state-of-the-art equipment and training enough to stop the malevolent tide poised to consume the world of Man, or is it already too late? Is the complete annihilation of their species a forgone conclusion? Can they add to their ranks, piece together what’s left, and bring the fight back to Artax and his demonic minions?
One thing’s for sure: the epic battle between man and its greatest creation is about to begin…

Have computer and camera, will travel... is my motto. I have enjoyed traveling Europe to study the ancient architecture and look forward to taking that influence into my profession. I have a passion for the historic, but embrace the new and wonderful realm of the architectural and design influences of today.
