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

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

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?
