Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
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.
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.
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 ...
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.
