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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1368

Panel 1
Alyss stands near Santiago, who is resting in a bed, apparently asleep.
Caption: Aboard the Eva Jeanne, near Zytemonde:
Alyss: My dear Santiago. You paid such a heavy price for my mistakes.
Alyss: Am I about to make another one?
Panel 2
Closer shot on Santiago and Alyss.
Alyss: I thought together we could lead a renaissance on Zytemonde.
Alyss: Bring your people back from the precipice of extinction.
Alyss: I thought that my five centuries' experience gave me the wisdom to anticipate the problems, and deal with them.
Panel 3
Close-up on Alyss. Behind her, we can see Bok peeking from behind a doorway.
Alyss: But I guess I'm not as smart as I thought.
Alyss: Maybe old Hugo was right. Maybe we need disasters like the 'Venus' worlds to remind us of the misery that top-down economies always produce.
Alyss: And to remind us of the iron fist inside collectivism's velvet glove.
