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 1946

Panel 1
The whole gang is in a flying tractor pulling a wagon. Wendy and Bob are on the tractor and the rest are huddled together in a seat-less flying trailer.

Caption: Wendy was gracious enough to let me have my break (and Areum, too). Then we clambered into a rather graceless machine.
Wendy: Sorry to make you ride in the wagon. My mini-bus is in the repair shop.
Panel 2
Diana shades her eyes against the overhead lights as she gazes out over a 'field' of growing victuals extending to a negatively curved horizon. Areum is sitting next to her.
Caption: At least I got to view for real the vast, emerald waves of, uh, ornikale or tomaccoli or whatever that was. I just wished it wasn't so farckin bright.
Areum: Why does Bob make you nervous? He doesn't seem aggressive.

Panel 3
Now we can also see Alyss sitting with the other two. Maybe the backs of the Martello brothers' heads. Alyss responds to Areum's question.
Alyss: I met Diana on a slave world ruled by demented arti-folk, and Bob resembles one of their enforcer-bots.
Alyss: An enforcer flash-fried my hand and was about to kidnap a small group of us when Diana bashed its brains out with a shovel. And so we escaped.

Panel 4
Areum is looking at Diana with a bit of awe. Diana looks uncomfortable. Dominic hooks a thumb at her and is talking to Guido.
Areum: You … never mentioned that.
Diana: I don't like to talk about it.
Dominic: What'd I tell you? Under that meek exterior is the heart of a lioness.
Guido: Hey, you're always lion about the women you like.
