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.

Transcript For Strip 1994

Bok explains it all:

Bok: In the 11th Century of the space age, the city of Novo Paolo, a.k.a. ‘bubbleopolis,’ is a shining jewel of free humanity.

Thirty million souls inhabit this artificial, prosperous world, unburdened by kings, or presidents, or anything resembling a monopoly state.

Of course, no state doesn’t mean no law. Here, the law is a matrix of contractual agreements, based on a covenant all residents are asked to sign.

Like the old English common-law, our law develops organically from decisions rendered by reputable arbitrators, one dispute at a time.

Sure, there will always be those who resort to violence to get what they want. This is why self-defense is regarded as not only a right, but a duty.

Murders, rapes and robberies are fairly rare here, as those who do such things are quickly removed from the population. or existence.

Now, one might reasonably ask, ‘without a state, how is the law enforced?’ Or more to the point, how are disputes peacefully settled?

To answer that question, please allow me to tell you a story about how one very major dispute was settled recently.

I like to call this story, ‘The trial.’
