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 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 1832

Panel 1
Establishing shot of Juan's hospital room. Dominated by the 'bed' which is more like a sarcophagus through which his face protrudes, but the face is currently covered with a mask connected by tubes to machinery behind the head. Diana and the others look on, Diana and Wook look horrified, Areum is stoic as usual, the Snake is calm.
Diana: Total immersion life support?!
Diana: What in the flaming fuck did they do to him?
Agent: I have the report from the chief trauma-doc in my database.
Panel 2
Diana looks with increasing horror at Montoya as he recites from the report. We can see Wook standing behind Diana.
Montoya: Summary: Patient has 2,817 bone fractures from skull to feet, numerous hematomas and lacerations, brain and abdominal hemorrhaging, one collapsed lung, dislocations in both shoulders and hips, minimal cortical activity.
Montoya: Prescribed treatment: 20 days in total nanobiotic reconstruction, with another 90 days minimum physical therapy recommended.
Panel 3
Same shot, now Diana has tears streaming down her face, she is shaking, on the verge of collapse.
Montoya: There's an additional notation, with regard to mental health:
Montoya: While the body can be restored, a mind that has gone through the sort of trauma that produced these injuries, is not as easily healed.
Montoya: It is recommended that within 15 days after decanting ...
Panel 4
Diana collapses into a startled Wook's arms.
Snake: Senhora Martelli!
