Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Lea Jean Badelles Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
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.
Project Complete! [ Oct 31, 2023 ]
We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive>, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.
Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.

Murphy: Not yet?
Hugo: The Cush are our best means of finding Eithne.
Hugo: Otherwise we're looking for a needle in a truly gargantuan haystack.
Murphy and Hugo
Murphy: What do you propose?
Hugo: We're still well within Community space.
Hugo: We can tell Theo we want to work with him, and take this Icosaship on a course where we'll likely intercept Community ships and stations.
Murphy sits up in the bed, not exactly happy to be hearing this.
Murphy: You want us to help assimilate Gluteans?
Hugo: Only such few as are absolutely necessary.
Hugo: Unless you think they'll tell us where Eithne is being held if we just ask them nicely.
Murphy has stood up, and is re-projecting her holographic clothing. Hugo is sitting up in the bed.
Murphy: I … I'm not sure how this squares with our ethics, Hugo.
Murphy: Granted, the Community is predatory, but is every individual member at fault?
Hugo: I don't think that's a real concern here.
Murphy turns to face Hugo, who is now standing and projecting holo-clothing.
Murphy: What? How can you mean that?
Hugo: Because I have pierced the veil, revealing 'the man behind the curtain.'
Murphy: Veil? Curtain? What man?
Hugo: Let me explain …
