First Seen: Fri 2020-05-22
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.
Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]
UPDATE: Art in progress
We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate.
Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
External view, Causa Sui coasts alongside the second 'space turd.' The rock is canted at an odd angle.

Murphy (from ship): And here we are, as I forecast.
Looking past Murphy and Hugo at the viewscreen in their control room. It is displaying the rock, with tactical lines and numeric readings.
Hugo: Unfortunately it's acquired a pronounced two-axial spin.
Murphy: I suppose we should be glad the drive system on it has gone inert.
Murphy and Hugo.
Hugo: Indeed. It's also good there's no guidance system on it smart enough to deal with getting Displaced to another system.
Murphy: We can use electro-grav beams to stabilize it.
Hugo: Perhaps, but first we need to make extensive scan-recordings of it, untouched.
Another external view of the ship and the rock, coasting and tumbling along.
Murphy: For clues as to its origin, I get that.
Murphy: But it has been 'touched' quite a lot by the radiation and gravity waves of Snake-Eyes back there.
Hugo: One problem at a time, Murphy.
