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 2207

Panel 1
Two pairs of eyeballs, ‶1″ and ‶2″, looking at each other in the total dark.
Caption: Historical flashback: Texas, the winter of 64 SA:
1: Three days without electricity! What the heck happened?
2: Texas has its own electrical grid, and it wasn't prepared for this freak winter storm.
Panel 2
Two pairs of eyeballs, ‶1″ and ‶2″, looking at each other in the total dark.
1: Who's responsible for this disaster?
2: Well, some blame the wind turbines, some blame the natural gas suppliers, others blame state regulators and power suppliers.
2: So, politics as usual.
Panel 3
Two pairs of eyeballs, ‶1″ and ‶2″, looking at each other in the total dark.
1: So, we freeze in the dark due to typical human folly.
2: That's the size of it. Helluva punch-line, eh?

Panel 4
Suddenly the space is illuminated. We see a single light-bulb above which has snapped on. And our interlocutors are, The Cartoonist and a wild javelina, reacting in shock to each other.
SFX: CLICK!
1 and 2 in unison: AAAAAAAAA!!!

Panel 5
Entirely filled by caption.
Caption: I swear all of the above is true. Well, metaphorically true, anyway. No javelina was harmed in the production of this cartoon.
Seriously, I had no power to my home/studio for three days which completely ate up my buffer and left me exhausted from scrambling for firewood and tending the fire in my fireplace so I didn't freeze to death. So I need to pause updating the strips for one week. Sorry about that. QUANTUM VIBE will resume Jan 29.
