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.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Eithne is at the workbench, hard at work running tests on a largish assembled component, as Ralf looks on. Murphy narrates from a cameo.
Murphy: Eithne and Ralf continued their shopping trek, blissfully unaware they were being followed. Finally, back at the cruiser:
Eithne: Fuck. I'm going to need two more Class 5 turpsiators.
Ralf: Back to the marketplace then?
Eithne looks at Ralf wearily.
Eithne: I don't want to have to put that get-up on again just to buy one item.
Ralf: Okay, I won't be gone long.
Eithne: Thanks, Ralf. But don't get junk. Quality counts.
Ralf looks balefully at a small number of square tokens in his hand.
Ralf: I'm supposed to buy two high-quality turpisators with five chips of aztekium.
Eithne: I'm counting on your renowned haggling ability.
Ralf: Pft. I need to have a word with my publicist.
