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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 2086

Flip back to the viewscreen. Jerome is in front of an isometric 'map' of the City. The area attacked is indicated, and all the outward spheres are colored yellow. The inward spheres are blue, and then there's Pandemonium, a solid black.
Falstaff: With the source of these attacks as yet undetermined, the City remains enclosed in a nebula of foreboding.
Falstaff: The outer spheres are losing population as people draw inward, driving up the value – and cost – of living and working space in the inward spheres.

Panel 2
Falstaff stands before footage of a crowd of people, laden with luggage, at Deep Displacer Station. A queue is moving past a ticket counter and people walk into a trio of (hexagonal, of course)Displacer Portals.
Signage: Dieter Portal stelar | Please have Destination Code Ready
Falstaff: And for the first time in two centuries the city may be losing population, at least temporarily, as thousands are crowding the departure portals and starship bays.
Panel 3
Footage of Falstaff confronting Alyss and Kofi, with Sergio standing with them. Falstaff narrates from a cameo
Falstaff (cameo): As the tension continues, and commerce slows to a crawl, I asked two of the Pillars, if they could tell us anything to give people hope for the city's future.
Kofi: As always, we each must choose for ourselves where to place our hope.
Alyss: We have survived wars before, and we will survive this one ...

Panel 4
Flip back to face Otto and Sarah, who are facing the viewscreen. But Otto is starting to stand up, while Sarah remains entranced by Falstaff.
Alyss (OP): … while preserving our liberty, never surrendering.
Otto: I think I should get back to work. Thanks for the Cintilar.
Sarah: Huh? Oh, okay. See you.
