Today on Quantum Vibe: The solution on his doorstep Strip 2455 First Seen: Mon 2023-12-04
Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
Project Complete! [ Oct 31, 2023 ]
We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive>, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.
Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.

Bok (OP): … and murdered, in cold blood.
Bok: One staff member was released to, quote, ‘tell the resistance to stand down or this will continue.’
Jorge: What the hell do we do now?
The four Pillars talk among themselves.
Enrique: I know what we don’t do – capitulate.
Kofi: Agreed. But what will the populace do?
Alyss: I think most of them will just get more angry. I know I want to kill those fuckers with my bare hands.
More talking, Alyss has her head turned a bit:
Enrique: Most who would be inclined to surrender have already left the city.
Kofi: Which is fortunate because we are also cut off from some of our food supplies.
Alyss: Hang on, I’m getting an incoming call from Sheldon.
Jorge keeps talking:
Jorge: I think it’s time for you to make a public appearance, Alyss. Rally the people with your ...
Electronic voice from OP: Not a bad idea, but I have another one.
The group turns to find a holo-projection of Sheldon Rico, with Jean-Luc Macron standing with him.
Sheldon: It appears the solution appeared on my doorstep just a few minutes ago.
Sheldon: This gentlemen claims to be a defector from IGC.
Sheldon: I recommend we convene an audience for him.
