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.

Transcript For Strip 1216

Panel 1
In the morning history class, high-angled view of the student rows. Diana is looking curiously at the empty space where Zander usually sits. Bok glances at her but remains silent.
Mr Foot (OP): Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah and so forth ...
Diana: ?
Panel 2
Bok and Diana exit the classroom together.
Diana: So, what's the deal, is Zander late again?
Bok: Keep this on the Q.T., but ... he went to visit Lorri yesterday and they had a flame-out.
Diana: No kidding?
Panel 3
Bok and Diana continue down a corridor
Bok: No kidding. He's pretty broken up about it, and is staying home for a few days.
Bok: So what happened to your 10-day suspension?
Diana: My parents got sick of me being around the house ...
Diana: So they pulled some strings and got me un-suspended.
Panel 4
Cut scene: A darkened room, Zander has been sleeping on a ratty sofa. Somebody is reaching an arm into a frame and prodding Zander's shoulder.
Caption (Bok): 'Must be nice to have that kind of status.'
Voice from the arm: Hey, Wildcard, time to wake up.
Voice: Barbarossa wants to talk to you.
Panel 5
Zander is pulling his shoes on. We now see his interlocutor, an ectomorph with scraggly whiskers, wild hair, and clothes just a bit too small: Lupin
Zander: Ugh. My mouth feels like dirt. Lupin, can I get some water?
Lupin: 'Can I get some water?' he says. Like I'm a frikkin servant.
Lupin: We'll see Barbarossa, then I'll show you to the kitchen.
Panel 6
Zander and Lupin face Barbarossa: An endomorphic, red-bearded fellow wearing a Greek fisherman's cap. As Zander speaks, he starts coughing.
Lupin: Barbarossa, this is Wildcard.
Zander: Uh, hello, Barghhh-{cough!} {cough!}
Barbarossa: Oh shit, Lupin, get this kid some frikkin water, will ya?
