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.
Cut to: William I. 'Billy' Montoya, a 'tin-man' with a body mimicking a large boa (as seen in Volume 6) is standing next to a liquor cabinet, using armatures to mix a cocktail.
Caption: Meanwhile, across town:
Billy: Well, I'm glad you were able to stop by and see me, Dad.
Billy: It seems we hardly ever get together anymore.
Caption: Atty. William I. Montoya, Esq.
Reverse view, the armature is handing the drink to Albert Montoya.
Albert: I'm sorry I've been so pressed for time lately.
Albert: With any luck this crisis will be past and things can go back to normal.
Billy: 'Normal' may never be the same again.
Albert lounges in a chair as Billy, in his hovercraft, has settled down beside him
Albert: Well, at least I've become accustomed to the body you chose to resurrect into after the … accident.
Billy: Ha-ha! And only after 50 years. That's adaptability, to be sure.
Another angle on the two.
Albert: I could be gone a good long while. Look after the family for me, would you?
Billy: Okay, but I'd like you to bring back a pony for me.
