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.

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 1272

Panel 1
Alyss and the kids are standing just inside the door to a comfortable-looking bedroom.
Alyss: Okay, there are three rooms, interconnected with doors that lock from each side.
Alyss: So you can have as much or as little privacy as you want.
Panel 2
Alyss is holding up something that looks like a Cable TV remote.
Alyss: Each room has a video terminal, snack and drink dispenser, and toilet.
Alyss: Since you don't have implants, you will need one of these handies to control everything.
Bok: Implants?
Panel 3
Alyss points at her head.
Alyss: Most people here have cortical implants. Computers that interface directly with our brains.
Alyss: They also have radio transcievers, so we can control gadgets, and communicate with each other at a distance.
Zander: Cool. Can I get one?
Panel 4
Zander is caught between Alyss and Diana, arguing.
Alyss: I can arrange that for you, sure.
Diana: Hold on, Zander. It could be a trap.
Diana: Something like that can as easily control YOU as you can control IT.
Panel 5
Alyss looks a bit put out but keeps calm. Diana stands her ground.
Alyss: Look, I understand your concern, but we don't do that here.
Alyss: These 'plants have multiple safeguards.
Alyss: There hasn't been a case of a 'plant being hacked and used against its owner in 450 years.
Diana: Says you.

Panel 6
Zander demurs, as Alyss and Diana glare through narrowed eyes at each other.
Zander: Uh, maybe I'll think about it a bit, if that's okay with you.
Alyss: Fine by me. Take all the time you need.
Diana: You bet he will.
