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.
Close-up of Diana in severe anguish, her face surrounded by a black fog of despair.
Caption: It hit me like a steamroller I didn't see coming.
Caption: They tortured him. For information. About the Roaz case.
Caption: They were looking for me, too. They didn't find me.
Caption: They had to have asked him where I would go. But he didn't give me up.
Caption: No matter what they did to him, he didn't give me up.
Pull back, now we see that Diana is curled up in the lap of Wook, who is stroking her hair in an attempt to comfort her as she would a child. Diana is snapping out of her funk and realizing where she is.
Wook: … he will be healed … it's okay … he will be with you again ...
Diana: Buuh …
Diana quickly gets to her feet, looking embarrassed. Wook looks a bit disappointed. Areum, looking on, is deadpan as usual.
Diana: Sorry … sorry! I … Juan is a good friend, and … this ...
Areum: Unfortunately you will not be able to speak with him for another 16 days.
Areum: Perhaps we should return to the flyer now.
Diana bends close over Juan's sarcophagus. In the background are the bodyguards, and the snake.
Diana: So … Senhor Montoya, you said I have full control of his business and property?
Montoya: Yes, indeed. He must hold you in high regard, to be so trusting.
Areum: Take care that you do not precipitate another emotional collapse, Montoya.
