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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 1998

Panel 1
As Bok narrates again from a cameo, we see Miller addressing the arbiters.

Bok: Even though most of the evidence was presented to the arbiters in advance, all parties agreed that the verbal arguments would be video-recorded and broadcast city-wide.
Bok: By random lot, the de Castries side presented first:
Miller: For centuries, Roaz has jealously dominated the instant-transport market.

Panel 2
Miller continues his diatribe, we can see Alyss looking thoughtful in the background.

Miller: Her continuous updating of the Oresme-Shield tech forces everyone to also use her updated Displacer technology, which integrates with it.
Miller: We can't even move from one sphere in this city to another without paying a fee to her predatory financial empire.
Miller: But scientists working for de Castries hit upon a solution ...

Panel 3
Let's take another look at the group at de Castries' table. There's one new face we haven't seen before: a slim male, somewhat nervous-looking.
Miller (OP): I can't reveal the specifics but this new technology utilizes three extra spatial dimensions to create portals within the four-dimensional space-time we inhabit.
Miller (OP): At least, in theory. But one of Roaz's industrial spies learned about this and set out to either capture it or destroy it.

Panel 4
The arbiters question Miller.
Feingold: 'Spies?' Have you identified any spies for Roaz in the de Castries organization?
Miller: Well, no. But in order to learn about my client's project she had to have one, quod erat demonstratum.
Feingold: I suspect the correct Latin phrase here might be, 'quod bovem de stercore .'
