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: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1293

Panel 1
The whole gang still in the conference room. The Zytemondians' moods range from shock to outrage.
Sargon: Demise? You've got to be kidding!
Lupin: Zytemonde has its problems but it's still thriving!
Bok: A population of ten million after 11 generations is hardly what I'd call a decline.
Panel 2
Alyss responds with gentle sadness.
Alyss: No Bok, I'm sorry. Not ten million. Not even five million.
Alyss: Zytemonde's population is currently about 2.5 million and declining by 3 percent per year.
Elric: What? How can you say that?
Panel 3
Diana, her arms wide. Elric is subdued.
Alyss: Oh, for crying out loud! Have you looked around? Your infrastructure is crumbling.
Alyss: Your monorails are never more than a quarter full. You have more empty houses and apartments than occupied.
Alyss: Your dispensaries look like mausoleums! Your recreation centers are mostly deserted! Is this efficient resource allocation?
Elric: Uh no?
