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.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Li, Nigel, Buford, Nicole and Murphy are standing in a metal-walled room. They are all wearing jumpsuits. Li is next to a console with his hand near a control interface.
Li: Our target is on Terra, which has a surface gravity of 9.8 gravs.*
Li: This building has adjustable electro-gravity, which can simulate Terran gravity …
Caption: *1 grav = 1 meter/sec/sec
Li touches the controls, and his knees bend slightly. Nigel and Buford fall onto their knuckles, Nicole staggers slightly. Only Murphy seems unaffected.
Li: … thusly.
Nicole: Feek! I thought Venus was bad!
Li holds up an ordinary chicken's egg.
Li: Not only will you feel four or five times heavier than you're used to, things fall faster, with sometimes dramatic results.
Li: Allow me to demonstrate ...
Li drops the egg on the floor, where it goes splat. Nigel, Buford and Nicole are wide-eyed. Murphy remains unperturbed.
Buford: Holy shuck!
