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: Assimulation - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas

Updates delayed by Thundersnow [ Feb 21, 2021 ]

It's cold and dark in here.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.

QUANTUM VIBE will resume uploads on March 1, 2021

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.
