First Seen: Mon 2015-03-16
Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles 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.
Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]
UPDATE: Art in progress
We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate.¬†Go to this page for more info on how to participate.
Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
At the end of the pressurized gangway, Murphy and Nicole climb into the front pair of seats in a 4-seater cockpit.
Murphy: They should have enough lead-time now to reach the rendezvous.
Nicole: Feels kind of odd that we'll be getting there in less than an hour.
External view of the modified boat, in the hangar as the gangway retracts.
Murphy: Most of the time will be spent getting clear of Chaos, then adjusting vectors, then the final approach to PersiphaŽ.
Nicole: Even though I've been to two other star systems and back now, it still feels weird going halfway across our own solar system in the wink of an eye.
A different spacecraft is near an oblong moonlet, with crescent Jupiter in the background.
Maureen: We're in the lee of PersiphaŽ, dropping the EM shield.
Maureen: No indication we've been followed, or tracked.
Li: Let's hope not.
In the cockpit, Maureen and Li.
Maureen: Yeah, it won't be long before the EM shield becomes obsolete as a cloak.
Maureen: It's little use against the improved mass detectors.
Li: True enough. We're becoming the victims of our own success.
