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.
Nicole in space, turning to look at her companions in the background.
Nicole (thought): OK, got the distress call on automated repeat.
Nicole (thought): Murphy is STILL out cold.
Full shot of Nicole, looking at the palms of her gloved hands.
Nicole: I need to get to her.
Nicole: But this suit doesn't have thrusters. How can I ...
In the lower left of the panel, a close-up of Nicole having an 'ah-hah' moment. In the rest of the panel, a memory shot of her getting knocked backward when she fired her new handgun.
Nicole draws the gun from its holster on her carry-all belt. She eyes it cautiously.
Nicole: Will this really work?
Holding the gun with both hands, she presses the butt against the right side of her solar plexus, turning her head to look back towards Murphy, who is behind to her left.
Nicole: Gotta position this so I move the right way and don't go tumbling.
Same shot – the gun fires, Nicole's legs flare out a bit.
Nicole: In space, no one can hear you shoot from the hip.
Nicole is now noticeably closer to Murphy.
Nicole: It's working! But I'm gonna miss if I can't …
Nicole reaches out and grabs Murphy by the ankle.
Nicole: … Grab her.
