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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 1297

Panel 1
Elevated angle from behind Alyss, looking at all the Zytemondians.
Lupin: Okay, so our Central Intelligence is pulling our society down the drain. What can we do about it?
Alyss: I'm not sure there is anything. I came to your world simply to observe, and make reports.
Bok: But you've been doing more than that, haven't you?
Panel 2
Focus on Alyss, laying an affectionate hand on Zander's shoulder.
Alyss: Yes. I as I got to know some of you, the great tragedy of what your system was doing to you weighed heavily on me.
Alyss: Especially to exceptional talents, like Zander here. In my world, he would be learning to be a great engineer in paratronics, or dimensional mechanics.

Panel 3
Different angle on Alyss, including Elric and Sargon.
Alyss: The majority of Zytemondians are quite comfortable in their gilded cages.
Alyss: They would never accept a culture of self-reliance.
Alyss: But some of you, like all of you here, deserve better, and I thought I could lay the seeds of cultural evolution among you.
Panel 4
Focus on Alyss, looking sad. In the background, an image of the Master Processor from strip 47.
Alyss: But your Central Intelligence has a powerful grip on your society.
Alyss: More powerful and tenacious than I had at first realized.
Alyss: Early on, I made some missteps, and, someone I cared about, a man named Santiago Clark, was taken, and and ...
Panel 5
Looking past Alyss at Bok, who is looking shocked.
Bok: Santiago! You knew my father?!
Alyss: Yes Bok, I met him about a year after your mother died. We became good friends.
Alyss: He had considerable charisma, and I thought he could lead your culture out of the woods. So I showed him the truth behind the veil.
Panel 6
Bok is tearing up a bit. Alyss looks at him with a loving gaze.
Bok: That's how he knew all those things it was you.
Alyss: Yes, Bok, it was me. Now you understand the debt I owe to him, and to you.
Alyss: I intend to rescue as many exceptional Zytemondians as I can, but I swear I will do everything possible for your father.
