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.

Daskalov: The back side was melted into the wreck of a flyer she was found in.
Daskalov: Worst burn case I've ever seen someone survive.
Panel 3
Daskalov is reaching around the sides of the bandaged head, her arm blocking part of the patient's exposed face
Daskalov: We think the blast hit while she was in one of the spheres adjacent to Villa-Lobos, the instant she entered a junction matrix.
