Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.

Caption: Moments earlier:
Bok: Well, I should call it a night. I've got a bunch of editing to do tomorrow.
Zander: Yeah, I've got work that won't do itself. What about you, Otto?
Otto: I don't think I'm drunk enough yet.
Suddenly the room shakes violently, startling everyone.
Bok: Otto, drinking alone is for … whuh?
The lights go out. It's completely dark, but through the magic of cartooning we can still see the characters' eyes.
Bok: A black-out? How … nostalgic.
Zander: Otto, we've only lived here a few years. How often do black-outs happen in the city?
Otto: Uh … never?
Caption: As it happens, lights are not the only thing in the city that requires power. There's also ...
The light comes back on, but so does the gravity. The people, chairs and drinks suddenly fall to the floor.
Everyone: Augh! Oof! Ow! Yawp!
Caption: … the electro-gravity.
