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

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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1646

Panel 1
Ralf has pulled Eithne away from the counter, where Mezzy and the two captains watch them.
Ralf: Twenty percent? I'm not sure I can get enough shifting this swag for the normal fees.
Eithne: I won't fail. Go on to the marketplace and do your best shifting.
Eithne: And maybe we'll have better than ship's rations for dinner.
Panel 2
Back at the counter, Mezzy confers with the captains.
Ephemeris Captain: Good to see you taking steps, but we still have damage needing repairs.
Mezzy: Go get some estimates and bring 'em back to me.
Mezzy: If they're reasonable … I'll cover your costs.
Panel 3
Satisfied, the captains depart.
Ephemeris Captain: Yer all heart, Mezzy.
Mezzy: Better a hole in my wallet than a hole in my head.
First Captain: Ya also got a way with words.
Panel 4
Eithne is sitting at a console, regarding the monitor and interface. Mezzy is standing behind her, supervising.
Mezzy: This link will lead you to the sensor net, and this menu will take you to the sequential-logic section.
Eithne: Yes yes, so far so good.
Eithne (thought): I wish he'd quit breathing down my neck.
Panel 5
Eithne is looking at her gloved hands.
Eithne (thought): This would go a lot easier if I could touch the console with my bare fingers.
Eithne: But I can't take off these 'fake hands' with him watching me.
Panel 6
Mezzy turns away in response to an angry voice calling him. Eithne sees her moment and takes off one of the gloves.
Angry voice: Mezzy! Ya pea-brained scum-bucket! Why'd ya direct me to an occupied slip?
Mezzy: Keep your pants on, Vinty! What slip was that?
Eithne (thought): Saved by the fail.
