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.

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.
Seamus, Nicole and Vedadi are in another room, now. A female BeltApe wearing a lab coat approaches them.
Seamus: Will it be much longer, Doctor Lakdawalla? We were told 10 minutes.
Lakdawalla: Sorry, t'e patient took a bit longer for t'e ... final polish, t'an we anticipated.
Everyone is looking past the reader's right shoulder as Lakdawalla gestures towards the object of their interest.
Lakdawalla: I'm sure you will agree it was time well-spent.
Reveal of the New Murphy. Roughly same body-shape but styled differently, hair is now red and styled differently, face is a bit different but still has a cleft chin. She's wearing a dark torsolette under a short jacket, over a translucent, short skirt, with dark panties underneath.
Murphy: Hello, my darlings. So what do you think of the new me?
Seamus and Nicole approach Murphy, with Vedadi bringing up the rear.
Seamus: You look as splendid as I'd hoped, my dear Murphy.
Nicole: Hey, you're even more gorgeous than before! How's a girl supposed to compete?
Vedadi steps forward, and bows to Murphy.
Vedadi: Ms. Murphy, I am Commander Vedadi of the S.S. El-Kady and I wish to extend my captain and crew's sincere ...
Murphy: Hold that thought, Commander ...
Placing her hands on Seamus' shoulders, Murphy easily lifts her face up to his in the light gravity. Seamus is unsure what to do.
Murphy: First I need to properly thank my very best friend for all he's done for me.
Murphy plants a big kiss on Seamus' mouth, as Nicole, Vedadi and Dr. Lakdawalla look on in a mix of amazement and glee.
Seamus stands momentarily befuddled. Nicole and Murphy exchange girlish whispers. Vedadi and Lakdawalla are simply amused.
Seamus: I ... ah ... yes ... you're welcome?
Nicole: You remember he's engaged, right?
Murphy: Yeah, but I made him forget for just a moment.
