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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 2208

Panel 1
Scene change: Back at the médico in Bubbleopolis, Otto Sullivan is walking close behind Doctor Denise Daskalov, who is visiting the charity burn ward at Delosario Sanatório Diagnóstico.
Caption: Meanwhile, at Delosario Sanatório Diagnóstico, in Bubbleopolis:
Daskalov: Things are getting back to near-normal in the other wards, but ...
Panel 2
They walk between rows of beds in an open room. The beds have movable walls between them, so we view this from an elevated angle
Daskalov: These are the hardest cases, Otto. Severe injuries, can't communicate or be positively identified.
Daskalov: Therefore no insurance accounts. The beneficencias cover their basic care but not the more costly treatments.
Panel 3
They pause by the bed of a slightly-built person swathed from the shoulders-up in bandages. Exposed arms and hands are covered in what looks like latex. A shock of white hair emerges from the top of her head.
Daskalov: This one was barely alive when she was brought in.
Daskalov: She's gotten stronger and her burns are healing but short of a Lazarus Tank there's not much we can do for her.

Panel 4
Now they've moved in alongside the bed.
Daskalov: It's time for me to change her bandages and evaluate the slow healing.
Daskalov: I can use your assistance, but be warned: what you will see is shocking.
Otto: More shocking than triage after a bombing? Let's do this.
