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: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

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 .'
