Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Title: WHO, WHERE, WHEN

Panel 1: This is Alyss roaz, who co-invented the Discontinuous Displacement Engine, allowing humanity to Reach the stars.
she once used the name Nicole Oresme and was a biological human. But when her body was destroyed, a recording of her memories and personality wass uploaded into an artificial brain and body. She is more than 500 years old.
Her inventive Genius and indomitable will have made her famous, wealthy, and formidable. (Editor: see volume 1 - Quantum Vibe: Nicole)

Panel 2: This is Doctor Murphy. She was manufactured to be a bound concubine but outgrew her origins to become a co-inventor of the Dicontinuous Displacement Engine, working closely with Alyss. (Editor: see volume 2 - Quantum Vibe: Murphy)

This is Dr. Hugo Galvéz, who was once Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, a man with a very long and controversial past (Editor: see Volume 3 - Quantum Vibe: Seamus). The Displacement Engine was built on his original work in 'Quantum Vibremonics.' Galvez, like Roaz, was once a biological person, uploaded into an artificial form.

Panel 3: Bolivar 'Bok' Clark, Zander Metaxas, and Diana Martelli were the first three of several dozen refugees rescued by Alyss from the backwards 'Venus' world called Zytemonde (Editor: see volume 4 - Quantum Vibe: Venus 23). Bok has found his niche in e-journalism; Zander is making bank as an up-and-coming master coder; and Diana struggled at first as an assistant to a private detective bu won fame and a small fortune solving a murder mystery for Alyss (Editor: see volume 6 - Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux).

Panel 4: Our story (after volume 3 of the Quantum Vibe saga), takes place 1000 years in the future, when humanity will be spread across the universe. But most of the action takes place in a vast, artificial space-city colloquially known as Bubbleopolis.

3015 C.E. = 1076 S.A.

The city is nested in the barycenter of a quintuple star system, and for most of the last three centuries has enjoyed peace as a politically-neutral, free-trade and financial center. It is home to some of the most brilliant minds in the universe, who jealously defend its independence, and their liberty.

Panel 5: The city was formed by five wealthy partners, who established a voluntaryist society. The five pillars have no formal office. but they have a network of trusted associates which form ad hoc committees to deal with crises which may arise from time to time.

The five pillars are: Alyss Roaz, Lorelei Decleyre (succeeded Hari Copperton), Kofi Akosha, Jorge Ansari, and Enrique Colón.

Panel 6: Unfortunately, ambitious and powerful forces from other worlds envy the wealth of Bubbleopolis and fear its dynamism threatens their own power and privilege. Here are some individuals working for them: René Belbenoit, Mordecai Montanha-Flores, Zonra Quirós, Jermoe Fallstaff, Marlon Trudeau, and Jean-Luc Macon.
