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.

Caption: This had been explained to me early on, but I'd never met a lawyer before.
Montoya speaks to Diana as the bodyguards look on.
Montoya: My apologies, but you've been very difficult to reach these past few days.
Montoya: Have you not been getting my messages?
Diana: Ah, Montoya, yes. Well, I've been busy
Different angle on Montoya, Diana, and the bodyguards. Diana looks alarmed.
Montoya: There are certain powers-of-agency that Senhor Gómez assigned to you several cycles back.
Montoya: In the event he is … incapacitated, you are given full control of his business and personal property ...
Diana: You mean, he's DEAD?
