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: Assimulation - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas

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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1211

Panel 1
Boney and Alyss in Alyss' reception room. She is looking at Zander's gadget.
Boney: So Bok said it's able to un-lock buggies.
Boney: But he couldn't test it further because, you know ...
Alyss: Yes yes, the buggies are network-linked.
Panel 2
Alyss has pulled the cover off the gadget, examining its internal workings.
Boney: So, we figured you could add some programming to block the network link?
Alyss: Oh, is that what you figured?
Boney: Uh, you can, can't you?
Panel 3
Alyss replaces the cover.
Alyss: In my sleep. But that's not what's most interesting here.
Alyss: This culture discourages human access to technology, beyond a certain level.
Alyss: The Central A.I. doesn't like disruptions in its planning.
Panel 4
Alyss begins pacing as she speaks. Boney follows her.
Boney: Yeah, that's what you ...
Alyss: And yet, here we have this child, completely self-taught, putting together a sophisticated device, practically using stone knives and bear skins.
Boney: Well, actually it was salvaged scraps from ah discards.
Panel 5
Alyss continues pacing, Boney blushes a bit.
Alyss: You mean, stolen goods and items selected out of the Dispensaries.
Boney: Well, yeah, I mean ...
Alyss: The point is, this child is a freaking genius to have built such a thing.
Panel 6
Alyss turns to face Boney.
Alyss: I must meet this boy , bring him into the group. Can you arrange it?
Boney: Well, it will take some doing, but I think I can get Bok to help me.
