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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1121

Panel 1
Bok is leaning against a wall in a corridor, talking on a, yes, smartphone. Although on this world they call these devices 'handys'.
Bok: Hey Zander, it's Bok. You make it home yet?
Zander (electronic, from handy): A little while ago. The power came back on not quite two ekostas after you, uh, left.
Zander: Fortunately the door closed itself, and nobody asked where you were.
Panel 2
Bok begins walking along the corridor.
Zander: Mom is on the warpath, though, wondering where I've been.
Bok: What, why didn't she call your handy?
Zander: I, uh, forgot to turn it back on after class. You know the rule about handies.
Bok: No blitz. Well, anyway, I'm coming by, if that's cool.
Panel 3
Cut to: Zander in his room. He's sitting at a workstation console in his bedroom, has a headset on.
Zander: Coming by? Why?
Bok (electronic): After today we need to blow off some steam. Party at Giovanni's.
Zander: But that's in Tower Five. How do we get there?
Panel 4
Bok is approaching the door to Zander's apartment.
Bok: Your old man's buggy, of course. I got my cert, remember?
Zander (electronic): Why would he, uh, lend us his buggy?
Bok: Leave that to me, glasshoppa.
Zander: I hate it when you call me that.
Panel 5
In Zander's apartment: Bok is speaking with Zander's parents, Nidas and Olypi, as Zander stands to the side, with that anxious aspie look.
Nidas: You want to use my cart?
Bok: There's a study group planned for the history class we're both in, in Tower Five.
Nidas: Why do you have to go so far? Can't you do this over the network?
Bok: Sure, but, well, Zander could use more, um, human contact, given his condition, wouldn't you agree?
Panel 6
Closer shot on the four. Bok is holding up a card for Nidas to see.
Nidas: I can't argue with that, and I appreciate what you do for him, but
Bok: And I have my certification, see?
Bok: With the radial rails being spotty in the evenings, it would really be safer to have personal transportation, wouldn't it?
Nidas: Well, all right. But be careful on the road, and get back here before 17, understood?
