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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

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.
