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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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.
Cut to the Boneheads, who are now standing. Bonehead 1 is walking forward.
Bonehead 1: Since the only people who can get into this room unannounced, are former Boneheads themselves ...
Bonehead 1: I don't think there can be any doubt as to your, shall we say, providence.
Bonehead 1 is shaking hands with Hugh, as Nicole embraces Murphy and Harry looks on.
Harry: As I understand L-5 City case law …
Harry: Seamus O'Murchadha died on Terra. Hugh is a self-owning entity, and heir to O'Murchadha's estate.
Murphy, Nicole, Hugh, Harry, and Bonehead 1. Hugh and Harry are smiling at Nicole, who's eyes are wide-open in surprise.
Hugh: Ah, but not the sole heir.
Harry: Before he left Hyperion, O'Murchadha amended his will. Half of his shares in Project X go to his, ah, 'niece-granddaughter.'
Murphy, Nicole and Hugh.
Murphy: It was my idea, but Seamus readily agreed. We worked it out while I was consulting with him for the hearing.
Murphy: We shall both become very wealthy.
Nicole: Maybe, unless we both become very dead.
