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: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Transcript For Strip 1797

Panel 1
Standoff in Juan's office. Diana still has her zringer charged. Agent Tieman is trying to de-escalate, while Agent Verdana is off to the side, rubbing his eyes.

Diana: Waitasec … Juan's disappearance?
Diana: I last saw him almost … 20 hours ago, when I left here.
Agent Tieman: That would have been roughly 13:50 yesterday.
Panel 2
Diana is relaxing more now. Her zringer is depowered. Tieman is collapsing the scanner she had been holding.

Diana: Yeah, I guess so. I'd had a rough day and Juan sent me home early.
Agent Tieman: But you didn't go straight home, did you?
Agent Tieman: Your apartment security shows an entry at 15:18. Was that you?
Panel 3
Diana is hesitant, not sure how much to tell the agents. Tieman tucks the collapsed scanner into one of her hip-pouches. Verdana is still rubbing one eye but getting back into the game.
Diana: Yeah, uh … wait, no. I didn't get home until ... 17:80 or so.
Agent Verdana: Almost 18:00? Where were you during all that time?
Diana: I had dinner at the Mercado DeSoto, then wandered around a bit.
Panel 4
Diana tries to re-assert herself, but the Agents are persistent.
Agent Tieman: Wandered around … where did you go, in particular?
Diana: Just … around! Geez, I thought you guys respected the privacy of your clients!
Agent Tieman: I thought you'd want to help us find your missing employer.
