Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.

A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
In Nicole's hotel room, she's viewing a video report by Claud Southend on her Roomscreen.
Claud (filtered): SINCE SHE DUCKED OUT ON HER SCHEDULD PRES CONFERENCE AT HELIOS CITY LAST MAY, DIS REPORTR HAS TIRELESLY TRACKD TEH ELUSIV ADVENTURES ACROS WORLDZ.
Reaction shot of Nicole, giggling as she watches the screen.
Claud: WE NEERLY CAUGHT UP WIF HER AT PELUCEEDAR STASHUN, TEH FLOATIN CITY IN VENUS CLOUDZ, BUT SHE FLD BEFORE WE CUD SPEEK WIF HER.
On the screen, we see Claud in front of the entrance to a hotel, the sign bearing its name being pixeled-out.
Claud: FOLLOWIN LEAD, WE ARRIVD AT ALDRINOPOLIS ON LUNA AN OBSERVD ORESME AN HER MANAGR CHECKIN IN 2 DIS HOTEL.
Claud: WE CANT REVEAL TEH HOTELS NAYM 4 LEGAL REEZINZ.
Another reaction shot of Nicole, who has raised one eyebrow, an idea a-borning.
Claud: IN R NEXT INSTALMENT WE HOAP 2 PRESENT AN INTERVU WIF TEH CAMRA-SHY CELEB, SO WE CAN LERN TEH TRUTH:
Claud: Y SHE DO IT?
Nicole sits on her bed and ponders.
Nicole (thought): Even though the hotel's name was obscured, Lunkhead must've recognized the building.
Nicole (thought): So he's familiar with this neighborhood.
Nicole lies down again across the bed, thinking.
Nicole (thought): But Philbert's just an irritant.
Nicole: (thought): The real problem is Claud Southend, dogging me like … like Inspector Javert after Jean Valjean.
Close-up on Nicole, brow knitted in thought.
Nicole (thought): I won't go to Seamus with this.
Nicole (thought): He's got enough to worry about as it is. Rejuv treatments are not without risk.
She flops over on her stomach, still thinking.
Nicole (thought): I can handle this myself.
Nicole (thought): If only I can figure out what to do.
