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.
The command deck of the Argosy, Captain Santos, First Mate Mueller, ChiefNav Bartoli. Important – there are two large windows to left and right.
Bartoli: We are now entering the 60 Gigameter Jovian perimeter.
Santos: Okay everyone, stay sharp. Scanners on maximum, charge the cannons, combat-bots on stand-by.
Two-shot of Mueller and Santos.
Mueller: Do you really expect trouble? We're a passenger liner, after all.
Mueller: It's not like we're carrying any high-value trade goods, or equipment.
Mueller and Santos.
Santos: No, but we are carrying several high-value passengers.
Santos: Gensaxwal officers, a Lunar Senator, Omegatek muckety-mucks.
Santos: They're supposed to be meeting to resolve the problems on Io.
Looking past Bartoli at Santos and Mueller.
Mueller: Huh. Labor troubles. They should just vacuum the lot of them and bring in fresh workers.
Santos: Recruitment is expensive. I hope they find a less drastic solution. I own some Gensaxwal stock, too.
