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 1732

Panel 1
Diana's bedroom, Diana is in the bed, all tangled up in sheets and pillows in a comically odd position. Hair looks like a rat's nest. One bleary eye has popped open.
Caption: I always try to sleep-in on quintas, but I can't seem to manage it.
Caption: My cortical implant knows what time it is, and some part of me feels, I dunno, guilty if I'm not doing something useful.
Panel 2
Diana in the shower stall. Waist-up, nude. She's washing her hair as the water sprays on head, neck, shoulders.
Caption: First useful thing, after morning ablutions, is refilling my larder.
Caption: It was a challenge, finding a place with a shower stall. Most people here seem to like those ‘clean screens’ that you just step through. It’s certainly faster.
Caption: But one of the more difficult things I had to learn, living here, is the right way to buy groceries.
Panel 3
Now dressed for the day, Diana sits in a breakfast nook, eating from a small plate, coffee mug at hand. She's gazing at a small holo-screen facing her from the opposite side of the table.
Caption: Like, don't shop when you're hungry. You waste your money on junk. So, eat something first.
Caption: And do your homework. Know what foods you need, and where to get the best quality for the price. This changes frequently, so it pays to check the anuncios before heading out.
Panel 4
Diana heading out her apartment door. She has her coat on and is picking up her flycar-briefcase.
Caption: Where I came from, the 'bots selected your food for you, and delivered it every few days. Scientifically-balanced nutrition, no human effort, or thought, required.
Caption: They also added a drug that made most people docile and stupid, so I guess even free groceries have a price.
