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 115

Panel 1
Nicole's hotel room, Nicole and Stone. Stone puts a sympathetic arm around Nicole's shoulder.
Stone: I think I know what you're feeling.
Stone: Our agent training also emphasizes avoiding violence, using words and other non-violent tactics whenever possible.
Panel 2
Two-shot, Stone and Nicole. Both sitting in the same position, leaning forward with elbows on knees. A bonding moment.
Stone: But in my third year on this job, I did have to kill someone, to protect an innocent.
Stone: For weeks afterward, I second-guessed everything I did.
Stone: But I eventually I realized the problem with practical pacifism.
Panel 3
Medium close-up on Stone.
Stone: There's only one way to avoid ever getting into dangerous situations ...
Stone: And that's to avoid any kind of situation. Lock yourself away from the world.
Panel 4
Full 2-shot of Stone and Nicole. Stone is standing, placing a reassuring hand on Nicole's shoulder.
Stone: In other words, don't ever do anything interesting. Don't grow. Don't change.
Stone: And what sort of life is that?
