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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1733

Panel 1
Diana in a marketplace. Looks a bit like a shopping mall, with various storefronts, signs, and people milling about.
Caption: This particular Quinday, the best deal on the vegetables I wanted were at a greengrocer's in the Mercado DeSoto.
Caption: It's also where some of the beneficencia hang their shingles, hoping to collect donations or volunteers for their various projects.
Panel 2
She strolls by a shop selling cosmetics, glancing at the wares.
Caption: People here have found that not everything that needs doing can be done for profit.
Caption: So they form the beneficencia – donation-funded institutions that provide everything from charity for the unlucky to resources for experimental art or basic science.

Panel 3
She walks by a storefront with a sign for Mentes Libres. Signage has uplifting type imagry.
Caption: The beneficencia also support social education and activism.
Caption: There's Mentes Libres, a group which promotes the founding principles of this place, which I guess could be summed up as 'compassionate individualism.'
Caption: Although back then I thought it was more like 'co-operative lawlessness.'
Panel 4
She has stopped at a storefront with a sign for Républicains por la Démocratie. There is a stand with stacks of flyers and books, and a sign reading, 'Please take a flyer.' She's picking one up.
Diana: And this is where I first encountered 'Républicains pour la Démocratie,' a group that wants to establish a traditional government in the City, with elections and everything.
Diana: I did find some of their arguments appealing, although I thought they'd have more influence if their name and literature weren't all in French.
