Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.
Two-shot of Alyss and Hugo.
Alyss: What I'd like to know is how you managed to insert that 7.62 – what was the term, 'dechrons'? – into your jump out of the galaxy and back.
Hugo: In our terms, roughly 900 seconds. Yes, a clever trick, if I do say so myself.
Close-up on Hugo.
Hugo: More than a century ago I discovered a transform constant within your Discontinuous Displacement equations which can be altered slightly to permit this.
Hugo: When transiting in space, one can also transit in time any distance up to that which light takes to cover that same distance in space. Or considerably less, as we did.
Hugo: I never shared this with anyone because I didn't see any use for it, until our recent adventure.
Hugo: This effect only works in one direction, mind you – 'Time's Arrow' remains un-molested and backwards time-travel is still beyond our grasp.
Three-shot of Alyss, Hugo, Murphy. Alyss and Hugo smiling, Murphy cocks a Spock-like eyebrow.
Alyss: Well, it's good to know becoming a 'Tin Man' doesn't have to cost one's creativity.
Hugo: I suspect our creativity comes from the random imperfections in our neural patterns which don't get engineered into artificial intelligence.
Murphy: Just my luck, I'm perfect. But, back to our story ...
