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

Project Complete! [ Oct 31, 2023 ]

Guido and Kennerly celebrate the Quantum Vibe Omnibus 1 project completed and exceeding goal.

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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1070

Panel 1
The assault squad, in full battle kit, settle themselves into a new cockpit six seats, with a hatchway leading to another area behind. Li and Murphy in front, Nicole in one of the middle row seats, Nigel and Buford in the back.
Caption: And, on the fifth day:
Li: Well, I hope Boudicca flies as good as she looks.
Murphy: I had the 'bots build her according to your specs, and test-flew her during your last sleep-cycle. She'll fly true.
Panel 2
Still in the cockpit. We can see space outside the canopy.
Li: What's the itinerary?
Murphy: First transit to near Neptune, use his gravity to help us get to the right inertial vector.
Murphy: Then a very brief transit to the Terran upper stratosphere for fine-tuning, then to the first target.
Panel 3
Cut to: Outside the Mu Gu Ku Shshī, angled upward past part of the building where we see two guards in the lower frame. The Boudicca zaps into the sky 100 meters above them, using the EM shield to suppress the electrical flash. The shockwave of her arrival gets their attention.
Panel 4
Hovering, Boudicca fires off two rockets at the building. Two of the tanks visible in the frame are turning their turrets towards her. We see one of the guards yelling into his wristband.
Panel 5
Athena transits again, this time not suppressing the flash effect. The result is a massive EM flash.
Panel 6
Cut to interior, the auditorium. Boudicca transits into the room, which is large enough to contain her. The transit is not EM shielded so now we get both the boom and the zap.
Panel 7
Boudicca's landing struts extend and the ship drops to the floor). The shock-wave has flattened the seats and caused considerable damage to the interior but the walls and roof remain intact.
Li (from inside): Last chance to abort.
Murphy (from inside): No shucking way.
SFX: crunch krumple
Panel 8
A ramp has opened and the assault squad storms out, commando style.
Li: Quickly as you can, people.
Li: That diversion only bought us a few minutes.
Murphy: I have a fix on his position.
Murphy: Follow me!
