Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.

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 Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]
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.
Big Head Press announces the release of the latest graphic novel in the QUANTUM VIBE series: Château Périlleux, in which 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.
Available now direct from Big Head Press.

Cut to: A conference room. Medium shot of Francisco Da Costa, with Dominic Martello seated to his right, Achal Verma, engineering consultant, to his left.
Caption: Elsewhere in the city, a Crisis Committee meets:
De Costa: So, what's coming next? Another high-speed space-turd?
Caption: Francisco Da Costa, financial advisor
Dominic: I'd prefer something more creative. Like a high-speed Picasso.
Caption: Dominic Martello, science advisor
Panning right, we still see Dominic but sitting to his right are Kāng Min-Chèng, military advisor, and farther right, Albert J Montoya, foreign affairs consultant.
Dominic: Or something sexier, like a high-speed Olivia De Beradinis.
Kāng: The enemy could launch another relativistic missile at any time from any direction.
Caption: Kāng Min-Chèng, military advisor
Montoya: We should expect some kind of statement from … whomever ... before the next assault.
Caption: Albert J. Montoya, foreign-affairs advisor
Pan right so we still see Montoya; to his right are Sheldon Rico, chairman of Mentes Libres, and Sergio Cooper, security advisor.
Rico: Agreed. Whoever we're dealing with put some planning and expense into this. He must want something from us.

Cooper: I think in the short term he wants to generate chaos, put us on our back feet.

Panning back over to the far left of that table, we see Achal Verma, De Costa, and Martello.
Verma: But, to what end? We have no resources here. What could they want?
Caption: Achal Verma, engineering consultant
De Costa: Well, this is a financial center. Maybe they just want money.
Martello: Do you think they'll accept my collection of Bill Ward nudes?
