Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
Kempadoo uses her height advantage over Diana to intimidate.
Kempadoo: You waited for 15 hours to report your apartment break-in and have been avoiding us that whole time.
Diana: Uh … because … because ...
Diana finds her courage, despite herself. She stands straight, arms crossed. Agents Tieman and Verdana look taken aback, but Kempadoo just looks angrier.
Diana: Because I don't trust you people!
Kempadoo: Oh, you don't? Why not? We're your assurance agency, too.
Diana is trying to choose her words carefully. Kempadoo glowers at her.
Diana: Because … it's connected to a confidential investigation we're doing.
Diana: And I'm pretty sure our contract with you guys does not require us to divulge confidential information related to our business.
Kempadoo: Perhaps it doesn't.
Kempadoo grabs Diana's right wrist (her zringer hand, holding it aloft). Agents Tieman and Verdana are even more taken aback.
Kempadoo: But I will find out what I need to know and if that violates the contract you can take me to arbitration later.
