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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Cut to: Outer space. A spacecraft is moving across the starfield, which has one very bright, almost-disc in one corner.
Caption: Five days earlier, 18 million km sunward of Jupiter:
Voice 1: I still can't see it, Mike.
Voice 2: It's here, I'm sure of it.
Inside the spacecraft control cabin, we see Spike and Mike peering intently at the monitors.
Spike: Wait – wait! There's something – it's like a hole in the starfield.
Mike: Woah! Better put on the brakes, Spike.
Exterior shot, the craft approaches a large, potato-shaped, black-black object.
Spike: Jiminy Crisco! It's just a faint, fuzzy patch on the radar.
Spike: How can we even tell how big it is?
Mike: Let's see if we can swing around it.
Inside the cockpit again with Spike and Mike.
Spike: How can something have an albedo of ZERO?
Mike: It's not quite zero, but close enough, this far from Sol.
