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

We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]

Indiegogo box for the project showing total collection of $4808, 120% of goal.

Third try, as they say, is a charm.

The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.

Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.

(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1618

Panel 1
Exterior of Causa Sui and the Dryhaven in a triple-star system, at station-keeping near a largish comet. The nearest star is a brown dwarf. A nebula fills the background star-field. Present-Murphy is in a cameo, narrating:
Murphy: While Eithne and Ralf were en-route to Campeche Rock, Hugo and I arrived with our Soraxian friends at the system they called, 'Back of Behind.'
Captain Shlack: It's a triple-star system including two red dwarves and one brown dwarf star.
Panel 2
On the bridge of the Soraxian vessel, Captain Shlack stands with Hugo and Murphy as the bridge crew tends their stations.
Shlack: The brown dwarf is a nova remnant, and there's a cloud of pulverized planetoids orbiting, full of metals and rare minerals practically laid bare for the taking.
Hugo: Then why aren't there mining colonies here?
Shlack: Back of Behind has several … problems.
Panel 3
Closer 3-shot of Shlack with Hugo and Murphy
Shlack: For one thing, the planetoid cloud is still fairly new, and chaotic. Hazardous to work in without really good shielding.
Shlack: For another, the nebula around us is full of negatively-charged gasses which interfere with subspace 'radio.'
Shlack: The Commies don't like to be out of touch with their network.
