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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 2161

Panel 1
Otto is in a room with two patient beds. He's refilling a cabinet with fresh linens. There's an upset patient in one of the beds, Cesar, yelling at the wall across from him. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown). His roommate, Ren, is looking simply grumpy. Ren has some tubes coming out of him but he seems less encumbered.
Cesar: Damn lyin' piece of hog snot!! You should be taken out back and shot!
Ren: {sigh}
Otto: What's wrong, Senhor ...Vásquez?
Panel 2
Angle view so we see Cesar pointing at the 3D Viewtank mounted on the wall across from him. It's showing Jerome Falstaff delivering another report.
Falstaff (electronic): … talks keep hitting one snag after another, while ...
Cesar: That mendacious nit-wit! He's tryin' t' tear the city apart!
Otto: Oh, yeah, Falstaff.
Panel 3
Otto has come over next to Cesar's bed, and is adjusting his pillows. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown).
Cesar: You don't believe his garbage, do you?
Otto: Not at all. But Senhor Vásquez, maybe you should avoid his newstreams.
Otto: Your Cardi-Pul machine has a difficult time when you're stressed.
Panel 4
New angle to include Ren in the frame. Now Cesar and Ren are bitching at each other, and Otto is looking nervous.
Ren: That old coot is not happy unless he's angry about something.
Cesar: 'Old coot?' I'm 53 years younger than you, ya bag'o'bones!
Otto: How about I put on a classic sit-com for you guys?
