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.
Exterior shot of the space-yacht Cissonius, a vessel with graceful lines measuring about 50 meters long and 30 meters across her beams. Normal complement is 12 passengers, 3 crew, and 200 tonnes of cargo.

Voice from yacht: So we're slingshotting-in how close to Jupiter?
Three men standing next to a bar: Seamus, Fred Bellaire, and Nelson Weatherford. Fred is very short and sits on a tall barstool.
Seamus: From Jove's center, 217,000 kilometers. From his cloud-tops, 147,000 kilometers.
Fred: Whee-ooo! That'll be a hot ride.
Three-shot of Seamus, Fred and Nelson.
Nelson: I certainly hope the shielding is up to it.
Fred: Up to it? This baby will gorge on it!
Fred: She's got one-a those new Romãozinho converters that'll charge the engine capacitors fuller 'n a vlogger at a free buffet table.
Reverse view, we see a viewscreen in which Jupiter looms large, beyond our characters.
Fred: When we pull away from Jupiter we'll be movin' like a bat outta hell.
Nelson: It's the 'hell' part I'm worried about.
