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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Same three-shot, Charles points the holo-distruptor at Seamus and Hari. Seamus looks unchanged (he's still wearing the bathrobe), Hari holds his hands folded over the top of his head as he reacts with alarm.
Charles: One way to find out.
Hari: What? Wait!
Same shot, now Hari lets his hands drop and we see that he had a holographic toupee covering pattern baldness. Seamus suppresses a chuckle.
Charles: Uh ...
Hari: Okay, it's me, alright? Turn that thing off!
Three-shot of Charles, Hari and Seamus. Charles has put the holo-disrupter away and Hari has a full head of hair again.
Charles: I'm sorry, Mr. Copperton, but ...
Seamus: Why don't you get that fixed for real, Hari?
Hari: I've been busy -- say, did you feel a draft just now?
The three of them look at the table where the android had been laying, and all that's left are the opened restraints.
Charles: Damn! Where'd he go?
Seamus: Hari Copperton, meet Harry Houdini.
