Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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. 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.
Exterior view of Alyss' starship, the Eva Jeanne, inside its storage bay.
Caption: Aboard the Eva Jeanne:
Michael (from inside ship): Sorry to bother you, Alyss, but there's a call coming in on the tip-line I think you should take.
Alyss (from inside ship): Who is it, Michael?
Inside the starship, Alyss is at a workstation festooned with monitors. She's turned to look down at Michael, who is cat-strolling up to her.
Michael: Someone says she's Diana Martelli.
Alyss: Oh jeez, another one of those?
Alyss: Is she looking to borrow money, or trying to sell me something?
Close in on Alyss, looking surprised as Michael answers her.
Michael: But she said to tell you she wanted to 'catch (you) white-handed.'
Michael: Which only makes sense if one remembers ...
Repeat of Panel 3, strip 159 of Volume 4, with an additional quote-caption box at the bottom.
Caption (Michael): '… the last time you had a white hand.'
