Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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 [ 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.
On the command deck, Eithne, Murphy and Hugo are at their ring-stanchions.
Caption: And so, two days later:
Murphy: Mister Lamdagan?
Eithne: Systems check complete, Captain, all reporting 100 percent.
Murphy: Very good. Mister Galvéz?
Hugo: The barn is all buttoned-up for our extended absence.
Two-shot of Murphy and Hugo.
Hugo: There is one thing we've overlooked.
Murphy: What's that?
Hugo: We haven't named this starship.
Murphy rolls her eyes. Eithne is intrigued. Hugo explains.
Murphy: Oh, for gourd's sake, Hugo! You and your archaic fixations.
Hugo: It won't hurt to indulge me on this one. But the choice should go to the owner, our boson.
Eithne: Um, I haven't really thought about a name. But I like the idea.
Hugo, Murphy and Eithne hash it out.
Hugo: Well, if I may suggest a name, I'd recommend Causa Sui.
Eithne: Kawza Swee? What's that?
Hugo: An ancient Latin term, meaning 'cause of itself.' It relates to how we assign purpose to our own lives.
Eithne, Murphy and Hugo. Hugo is holding up one hand and snapping his fingers.
Eithne: I like it.
Murphy: I suppose you'll want to do the Christening ceremony, too.
Hugo: This won't take long.
On a wall of the bay, a panel slides open, and a champagne bottle flies out of the opening.
The bottle breaks on the bow of Causa Sui.
Murphy (OP): You can clean up the mess when we return.
Hugo: Aye-aye, Captain Sweetie.
