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.
At the front counter of an establishment named BesTech Scientific Gear. Murphy is dealing with the store clerk (male standard human), who is looking down at her console display and repeating back Murphy's order. Nicole is standing close-by.
Clerk: Okay, that's one Dickerson Mark III magnetic resonance scanner, one Wilson molecular spectro-analyzer, one laser scalpel, 10 sampler syringes, two pairs of skingloves and ... four forceps?
Murphy: That's correct.
Two-shot of the clerk and Murphy.
Clerk: Very good, ma'am. I'll have these fabbed for you in about 15 minutes.
Clerk: The amount due will be 35 augrams, 12 sils.
Murphy and Nicole confer while the clerk is away filling the order. Murphy is holding up a rucksack.
Nicole: Won't it look suspicious carrying all that stuff into the mortuary?
Murphy: I'll be carrying them in this rucksack I bought down the causeway.
Murphy and Nicole.
Nicole: And the rucksack won't raise eyebrows?
Murphy: I can wear it on my back and hide it in my holo-field. Just like you do with your carry-all belt.
