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.

Transcript For Strip 1458

Panel 1
It's Eithne's turn to contribute.
Eithne: Well, there's a bigger issue with a warp drive, for us anyway.
Eithne: It presupposes a space-faring civilization that invented and uses it.
Eithne: And one that isn't us.
Panel 2
Three-shot, as they all ponder the implications.
Murphy: That would be a first, all right.
Murphy: In all our explorations, we've never discovered an existing alien technological civilization.
Murphy: Only a few ruins of some very ancient ones, who disappeared without a trace.
Panel 3
Shift focus to Hugo, keeping the other two in the shot.
Hugo: We've barely explored two percent of the known universe, but that still covers a lot of, well, territory.
Hugo: Which hypothesis is less likely: that someone has made a practical warp-drive, and that we've found a civilization capable of creating it ...
Hugo: Or the space/time distortion patterns are some sort of natural phenomenon?
Panel 4
Let's do an exterior shot of Causa Sui, just to break up the monotony.
Murphy (from ship): Well, Mr. Galvéz, if we think it's aliens, then our first order of business should be to take Eithne home before we investigate further.
Eithne (from ship): LIKE HELL!!
Panel 5
Back in the control room, Eithne squares off against Murphy, who is trying to placate her.
Murphy: Honey, we're not 'ditching' you.
Murphy: But sapient aliens could be far more dangerous than even a hypernova.

Panel 6
Eithne stands her ground. Murphy solicits aid from Hugo, who refuses to jump in.
Eithne: And also far more interesting!
Murphy: Hugo, can you reason with her?
Hugo: Oh, she's right, aliens are far more interesting than a hypernova.
