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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 1833

Panel 1
Close-up of Diana in severe anguish, her face surrounded by a black fog of despair.

Caption: It hit me like a steamroller I didn't see coming.
Caption: They tortured him. For information. About the Roaz case.
Caption: They were looking for me, too. They didn't find me.
Caption: They had to have asked him where I would go. But he didn't give me up.
Caption: No matter what they did to him, he didn't give me up.
Panel 2
Pull back, now we see that Diana is curled up in the lap of Wook, who is stroking her hair in an attempt to comfort her as she would a child. Diana is snapping out of her funk and realizing where she is.

Wook: … he will be healed … it's okay … he will be with you again ...
Diana: Buuh …
Panel 3
Diana quickly gets to her feet, looking embarrassed. Wook looks a bit disappointed. Areum, looking on, is deadpan as usual.
Diana: Sorry … sorry! I … Juan is a good friend, and … this ...
Areum: Unfortunately you will not be able to speak with him for another 16 days.
Areum: Perhaps we should return to the flyer now.
Panel 4
Diana bends close over Juan's sarcophagus. In the background are the bodyguards, and the snake.
Diana: So … Senhor Montoya, you said I have full control of his business and property?
Montoya: Yes, indeed. He must hold you in high regard, to be so trusting.
Areum: Take care that you do not precipitate another emotional collapse, Montoya.
