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.
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.
Cut to: Aunt Dorothy's bedroom. Dorothy is placing items in a suitcase laid open on the bed. Bok is standing next to her.
Bok: We're moving?
Dorothy: Accommodations has assigned us a larger apartment, so we have room for your father, and the things he needs.
Bok: So, get your things together. We're going to the new place this evening.
Dorothy is closing the lid to her suitcase. She looks quite contented. Bok looks troubled.
Bok: New place? Where?
Dorothy: Oh, not far. It's in this tower, but in a different section.
Dorothy: It was recently renovated, I'm told. It should be quite nice once we're in.
Dorothy lays another, smaller suitcase atop the one she just closed. Bok is looking annoyed.
Bok: So now we have to move. What a pain in the ass.
Dorothy: Bolivar, when you're older, you'll understand how lucky we are.
Dorothy: Our society cares for us, takes care of our needs.
Bok has his arms crossed in defiance. Now Dorothy, putting more stuff in the smaller suitcase, is getting agitated.
Bok: Oh, sure, after it steals our brains.
Dorothy: Hush, child! What happened to your father …
Dorothy: … must have been necessary to maintain the social order.
Dorothy: Do you think Corrections does these things to be evil?
Bok begins to walk away, speaking through gritted teeth. Now Dorothy is getting angry – or is it fearful? She grabs his arm.
Bok: Corrections can get stuffed. The 'social order' can get stuffed.
Dorothy: Grow up, Bolivar! Do you want to go back to the old ways? The dog-eat-dog days when everyone competed for dominance over everyone else? When billions of people were sick and starving while a lucky few lived in luxury?
Bok pulls free of Dorothy's grasp.
Bok: Of course not. Do you think I'm stupid?
Bok: There has to be a better way than this. I don't know what it is, yet.
Bok: But I'm going to figure it out.
