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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1302

Alyss is kicking back in an overstuffed chair in her study, sipping an adult beverage. Hayami pokes her head in the door.
Hayami: I hope I'm not intruding, but ...
Alyss: Come on in, Hayami.
Alyss: I guess it's time to pay you.
Panel 2
Hayami stands near where Alyss remains seated.
Hayami: Pay me? But aren't you ...
Alyss: Your contract is completed. You performed well, but I won't be needing your services now.
Panel 3
Different angle, Hayami is confounded.
Hayami: But aren't you going back to Zytemonde?
Alyss: Yes, but not as part of the study project. That's over with.
Alyss: This is a personal mission, undertaken with my own funds.
Panel 4
Now Hayami is protesting. Alyss is touching her temple with a finger.
Hayami: Sure, but you're going into a hostile theater! You'll need muscle.
Alyss: Already covered.
Alyss: I'm sending payment to your account, with a 10 percent bonus for 'hazardous-duty.'
Panel 5
Hayami looks defeated, but makes one last try.
Hayami: But, what's your game plan? How are you going to rescue scores of people?
Alyss: I'm still working on that, Hayami, and it's not your concern anyway.
Alyss: Monty will see you out.
Panel 6
Hayami walks away. We see her in the foreground, casting a heavy-lidded glance back at Alyss, who is sipping her drink.
Hayami: Okay, but well, be careful, Alyss.
Alyss: I'm always careful, kiddo. That's how I've managed to live this long.
