Quantum Vibe

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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

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!

Transcript For Strip 1060

Panel 1
Once more around the conference table.
Maureen: What about the strike force?
Li: The optimum size for this would be a squad of five trained fighters.
Nicole: Well, we have four right here.
Panel 2
Li and Maureen.
Li: I don't think we can include Maureen, I'm afraid.
Maureen: WHAT? Why not?
Li: I need you to cover for me back at the office.
Panel 3
Li and Maureen, different angle. Li lays a consoling hand on Maureen's arm.
Li: And I don't just mean pushing papers for me.
Li: We will need several days to train and prepare the squad and I need you to obscure my absence.
Li: You're the only one who can do this.
Panel 4
Murphy and Li, with a dejected Maureen between them.
Murphy: That leaves us three. I am highly skilled in combat, and Nicole is aikidoka.
Li: Aikido is not really optimal for an assault force but it I think we can build on that.
Maureen (softly): If you say so.
Panel 5
Murphy, Maureen, Li, Nicole
Murphy: What of your former fellow ah, pirates?
Li: I know a few I could ask, but ...
Li: Aside from Mo, who wouldn't be useful, none of them was ever close to Seamus.
Panel 6
Li and Nicole
Li: Any of them would join us if asked, out of loyalty to me.
Li: But I can't in good conscience ask them to take the sort of risk we're taking.
Nicole: Now I'm feeling guilty for bringing you into this.
Panel 7
Li, Nicole and Murphy
Li: Don't feel like that. Seamus saved my life in so many ways, I feel it's an honor to have this opportunity.
Murphy: On that point you and I have a great deal in common.
Panel 8
Maureen, Li and Nicole;
Li: That still leaves the question of filling out our squad.
Li: We could use some extra muscle. Someone strong as a Beltape.
Nicole: Well it just so happens I know a couple of Beltapes who would do anything for Seamus.
