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.

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 1580

Panel 1
Exterior view of Causa Sui and Dryhaven.
Murphy (from Dryhaven): I hope you can understand our reluctance to share a drive technology that can span intergalactic space ...
Murphy: And perhaps bring an invasion fleet to our home.
Shlack: Yes, Captain Murphy, and I hope you can understand our intense interest in such a technology.
Panel 2
Medium shot of Shlack, making his pitch.
Shlack: After all, we are vulnerable to an invasion from your government.
Shlack: I think we have a valid interest in leveling that playing field, no?
Shlack: At any rate, you might consider that we might be able to help you repair your failed drive mechanism.
Shlack: The price of our assistance must be your trust.
Panel 3
Hugo and Murphy exchanging glances.
Hugo: Well, Captain, it looks like they have us over a barrel.
Murphy: Indeed they do. What do you recommend?
Hugo: That we trust them as far as they'll trust us.
Panel 4
Shlack and Hugo etc.
Shlack: What do you mean by that?
Hugo: I need to take a look at your drive and control systems, to ascertain whether our technology is compatible with yours.
Panel 5
Shlack and Hugo, with Murphy cocking an eyebrow
Hugo: There's a reason we don't have a warp drive on board, for shorter-range travel the technology is incompatible with our transwarp conduit systems.
Shlack: Transwarp conduit?
Hugo: It's how we travel across and among galaxies.
Panel 6
Shlack stands up. Murphy is looking sideways at Hugo.
Shlack: I suppose that's reasonable. But we'll be watching you closely.
Murphy (thoughtsend): What game are you playing now?
Hugo (thoughtsend): I call it, 'we all get to go home.'
