Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

Nicole: Have you been in contact with him?
Murphy looks away again, looking disturbed by her own thoughts. Nicole is perplexed.
Murphy: No, I … just no.
Murphy: I don't know how I know he's still alive.
Murphy: I just KNOW.
