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.

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

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 .'
