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.
The android stands next to Po in his chair.
Android: Your nephews wish to speak with you.
Po: They can wait. Listen to me, Veronica, time is short.
Po takes Veronica's hand in his.
Po: A man like me has few friends and many parasites. Beware!
Po: In this household, you are the only one I trust.
With his other hand, Po gestures Veronica to lean closer, which she does.
Po: I will be gone soon. At that time, you must contact my attorney, Bei Xuan-Kuang.
Po: He has important documents and can be trusted.
Same shot, although Veronica looks a bit startled at Po's words.
Po: You will be sent off-world, with manumission papers. And a quarter of my estate.
Po: I am hoping my nephews will be satisfied with the other 75 percent.
