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 1626

Panel 1
In the Dryhaven's engine room, Hugo and Murphy are conferring with Shlack, Shransh and Krasp as Prenk stands close-by. Two other Soraxians are fussing with some newly-installed machinery.
Caption: And so, 112 kiloseconds later:
Krasp: The power-support modifications are ready, as you can see.
Shlack: We are ready for you to begin fabricating your components.
Hugo: Yes, well ...

Panel 2
Closer shot on Hugo, Murphy, Shlack, Shransh and Krasp
Hugo: There is still the matter of some equipment, like the pento-matrix slicer, not being up to the specs I require.
Hugo: I must return to Causa Sui now and retrieve the gear I need to complete this project.
Krasp: But there are some components we can start making now.
Panel 3
Another angle on the same characters. Hugo looks frustrated.
Shlack: I want Doctor Galvéz supervising the process at every step of the way.
Shlack: Captain Murphy should be able to transfer to your ship and fetch the needed equipment.
Hugo: No, wait ...
Panel 4
Shlack pulls rank again.
Shlack: No, you wait. I don't want to tarry in this system any longer than necessary.
Shlack: Not everyone who knows about Back of Beyond is what you'd call 'friendly.'
Shlack: Proceed with the project while Murphy runs your errand.
Panel 5
Hugo plants a big kiss on Murphy's mouth. She's a bit surprised but doesn't resist.
Hugo (thoughtsend): Incoming data package with full instructions.
Hugo (ts): Take the module with you but don't let anyone see you.
Murphy (TS): No problem
Panel 6
Cut to Murphy with her rocket-pack on, jetting from an airlock in the bottom of Dryhaven towards Causa Sui, tethered below. We can see Hugo in a cameo, responding to her thoughtsend.
Murphy (TS): It's still going to take me a while to re-build the Displacement Drive.
Murphy: Shlack may get suspicious.
Hugo (TS): I'll do my best to keep him distracted.
