Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke 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.

Wei: The copy on file with the local registrar is dated 1332.02.28.
Seamus: That one must be a forgery.
Wei: Can you prove that?
Medium C/U on Seamus.
Seamus: No, not really. I've been busy with a project, which is still on-going.
Seamus: I can't stay here. This is why I came to you.
Wei hands the Screen back to Seamus.
Wei: Sure, my people can ferret out the truth of this.
Wei: But it will cost you.
Seamus: I fully expected as much.
