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.

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.
Stone is in Nicole's hotel room, seated on the bed as she brings up Nicole's search history on the room Screen. The history shows a short list, which includes the names Claud Southend, The Lucky Duck Club, the Bully Goat Tavern, and Rando Greene.
Stone is in the Lucky Duck Club, talking to a bartender. She is showing an image of Nicole, but the bartender doesn't seem to recognize her.
Stone is in the Bully Goat Tavern. It's less crowded now, but there are still some patrons in the background. She's talking with the bartender, who does recognize Nicole's image.
One of the patrons, a rough-looking male, has walked up to Stone, shouting something while he angrily shoves her. Some of the other patrons look on with anticipation.
Stone effortlessly lifts the ruffian by his groin. His face reveals his agony. The other patrons are saucer-eyed.
Stone casually tosses the ruffian over her shoulder. The other patrons shy away.
In the Offworld Lounge, Stone scans the table where Nicole and Rando had been sitting with her visor.
As Stone walks down the street, she holds a palm alongside her face, indicating she is making a tel call.
Stone: So far I have two subjects, a journo and a publicist. I suspect our guy is the latter, but I'll be looking into both of them.
