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.
In the Clínica do Renascimento, Otto is pushing a cart full of linens and meets his old buddy, Paul, pushing a cart of gas bottles.
Caption: In the Clínica do Renascimento.
Otto: Oh, hey Paul! You're working here now?
Paul: Yeah, since the 26th
They continue down a corridor side by side
Paul: I'm on a floating contract, working where I'm needed most.
Paul: I've been getting lots of hours and experience.
Paul: Pretty soon I'll have my Class A cert and can get something more stable at a quality médico.
Continuing down the corridor, they have to move aside a bit to let a pair of nurses by.
Paul: I hope you don't mind my asking, but ...
Paul: Why are you doing this scut work? You're rich, part of the deCleyre family.
Otto: Well, to be honest … I'm trying to forget a girl.
Paul is about to turn off to enter a small ward while Otto continues onward.
Paul: Oh, I'm sorry, you did mention … someone lost in the Gran Raio?
Otto: Yeah, well, turned out she survived. Then she kicked me in the balls.
Paul: Well, better luck next time.
