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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks 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. And speaking of, 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.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Transcript For Strip 2183

Panel 1
Alyss and the Pillars are in their small meeting room, seated in a semi-circle around the table. (Lorelei to Alyss' left, Jorge to her right) Above the center we see a hologram of Sergio's head and shoulders.
Caption: Not long afterward, the Pillars assembled.
Alyss: What did you mean, 'better than I hoped, but worse than I feared?'
Panel 2
Focus on Sergio's hologram image.
Sergio: In my opinion she is telling us what she believes to be true.
Sergio: And given that her DNA and cerebro-scan match, and that there is no one else around claiming her identity …
Sergio: Then by our laws she really is the Diana Martelli we've known and worked with.
Sergio: Even though she's an unauthorized clone and likely an enemy plant.
Panel 3
Pull back to show all the Pillars -- Alyss and Lorelei, who both look chagrined, the others looking thoughtful.
Alyss: What about the weird gaps in her memory?
Sergio: Those can be explained by the damage to her implant. The hardware/wetware interface is complicated, as we all know.
Panel 4
Medium shot on Alyss, looking like she's cornered.
Sergio: This means all recoverable property belongs to her.
Sergio: This would include the back-up she presumably kept in the house where she lived before the Gran Raio.
Sergio: Do you know what happened to it, Senhora?
