Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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 [ 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.
Back to full panel of Bok, with the Las Notícias Indelicadas graphic behind him.
Bok: Before we return to the Arb, I've received a few questions from viewers who are not familiar with the justice system here in Bubbleopolis, which I'd like to answer.
Bok: The first is: 'If the arbiters already have the evidence, why have a formal hearing like this?'
Bok: Well, in fact many disputes are settled without the parties facing each other in hearings.
Diagram illustrates Bok's words:
Bok: In most cases when person has a beef with another, he'll complain to his assurance agency, who will contact the other person's assurance agency, and they'll set up an arbitration to settle the matter quietly. Because it's more profitable than going to war.
Bok: The parties submit their evidence, and the arbiters can respond with questions in writing, to which the parties can also respond in writing, until the arbiters are satisfied they have enough information to render a decision.
Another diagram illustrates Bok's words..
Bok: But this case involves some very high-profile figures who have engaged in a rather shocking, by our standards, level of open combat.
Bok: The public is already interested, and people here have learned by experience that the best way to sort these things out is via a formal hearing, which literally everyone can view and consider.
Bok: When people can see that justice is being done, they have more confidence in the justice system, and this boosts everyone's sense of trust and safety.
