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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
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 the left foreground, one of the techs is bending over some device. In the background we see Nicole and Seamus standing beyond the glass.
Seamus: I've only known her a few days, and already I owe my life to her.
Nichole: Yeah, I saw the security videos, too ...
Flashback to a security-cam POV image of Mr. Graves dragging the beaten Murphy along a corridor.
Caption (Nicole): 'The actual fight was just a blur, but we saw that stinkfoot dragging her broken body to the airlock clear enough.'
Nicole: 'And after she tossed him, dragged herself on her elbows back to your pod to reverse the disconnect commands.'
Different-angle two-shot of Seamus and Nicole -- Nicole is looking up at Seamus who simply gazes intently through the glass.
Nicole: But you've stood right well by her.
Nicole: You've closely reviewed her treatment every step of the way.
Nicole: Not to mention, laid out kilograms of aurum for all the upgrades.
Nicole smiles sideways at Seamus while stretching absentmindedly as they talk.
Nicole: If I didn't know better, I'd say you were getting sweet on her.
Seamus: Just showing my appreciation for her service, I assure you.
