Story & Art: Scott Bieser - 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.

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.
Seamus, Vanessa and Nicole, at the table, eating and not talking. But Vanessa and Nicole are exchanging sideways glances.
Vanessa and Nicole rise from their seats. Seamus continues eating, pretending not to notice.
Vanessa: I need to go to the Ladie's Room.
Nicole: Me too.
Seamus continues eating.
The waiter is standing next to Seamus, proffering a menu.
Waiter: While your ladies are away talking about you, would you care to see a desert menu?
Seamus: Yes, thank you.
The ladies' room in the La Bocca restaurant. Vanessa and Nicole are at the mirror, primping.
Nicole: I was going to ask your impression of Seamus ...
Vanessa: Yes, little did you know he impressed me long ago.
Nicole looks at Vanessa with some trepidation.
Nicole: He impressed … did you two ever … do it?
Vanessa: Not that it's your business but, yes, we did.
Nicole looks disgusted. Vanessa decides to go for broke.
Nicole: Mother! Ewwww!
Vanessa: He wasn't the bloated giant 23 years ago that he is now.
Vanessa: Back then he was rather dashing, in an eccentric sort of way.
Vanessa smiles with satisfaction. Nicole looks like she just ate a bug.
Vanessa: In fact, his … rubinetto was quite impressive.
Nicole: Ow, gawd, I'm so sorry I asked.
