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.

Transcript For Strip 2201

Panel 1
Albert tries to cajole Ka. She keeps her back turned to him but doesn't walk away. (We can see some people in the middle distance throughout.)
Albert: Listen, I'm worried about Zondra. She could be in trouble ...
Ka: Oh, she's always in trouble. Tons of stalkers. Like you, maybe? Does she owe you money?
Panel 2
Albert looks offended.
Albert: Stalker? I beg your pardon.
Albert: As it happens I owe her a moebit, but mainly I'm concerned for her.
Ka: You owe her? She's not one to go lending money to rubes.
Panel 3
Albert looks even more offended. Now she turns to face him, points at his torso.
Albert: 'Rubes?' Where do you get off calling me that?
Ka: Are you kidding? Look how you're dressed! Classic rube.
Albert (thought): This is ridiculous. But as long as we keep talking ...

Panel 4
Now Albert looks a bit mortified, looking down at himself.
Albert: What do you mean? I update my wardrobe every year. This is the very latest ...
Ka: In the ass-end of nowhere, maybe. To me you look like Sixth-Century Hicksville.
Albert: But … I was born in the Eighth Century.
