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.
Ka warms up to him a bit. She walks around him looking him up and down.
Ka: That old, huh?
Ka: Well, I suppose if you can afford that much rejuve you're no chump.
Ka: Just understand, Zondra's a friend ...
The continue strolling
Ka: As in, 'a friend in need.' Turns out she owes me favors.
Albert: How many favors?
Ka: Ten thousand quatloos.
They pause again near another shop, a clothiers', 'Boutique Girard.″
Albert: That works out to … 5.27 Moebits.
Ka: Moebits? Moebits are good, yes.
Albert: When are they not?
Ka leads him into the shop
Ka: No time I've ever heard of.
Ka: C'mon, let's seal this deal and get you some better clothes.
Albert: Am I going to regret this?
