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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 173

Panel 1
Seamus, Vanessa, and Nicole in the bistro. A waiter is bringing their main courses. Nicole is sitting there, agape. Vanessa is solemn.
Vanessa: Yes, I told you I used various bits of genetic material from 2400 anonymous donors.
Vanessa: I'm sorry, dear, but I lied.
Panel 2
Two-shot of Seamus and Vanessa, speaking to Nicole who is OP.
Seamus: Don't blame your mother. There were non-disclosure agreements involved.
Vanessa: Also, non-obligation agreements, severing any legal bonds between you and them.
Panel 3
Close-up of Vanessa. This is clearly difficult for her.
Vanessa: I – was having problems with the original project design. I couldn't produce a viable fetus.
Vanessa: Seamus suggested using entire chromosome sequences from selected donors, rather than trying to build your genome one exon at a time.

Panel 4
Nicole is visibly upset. Vanessa sadly sips her wine.
Nicole: You – you used entire chromosomes, not exons?
Nicole: I thought I was the worlds' first osmotic clone – now you tell me I'm a living fraud?
