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

We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]

Indiegogo box for the project showing total collection of $4808, 120% of goal.

Third try, as they say, is a charm.

The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.

Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.

(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 2209

Panel 1
Daskalov and Otto are now on opposite sides of the bed. Daskalov is applying a micro-scalpel to one side of the patient's face. Otto is standing by with an empty tray.

Daskalov: By now we should be able to change bandages without anesthetizing her.
Otto: 'By now?' Jeez, how much burn did she have coming in here?

Panel 2
Daskalov drops some bandage cuttings in the tray.
Daskalov: Almost total. The front side of her looked like cooked bacon.
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.
Daskalov: Now, if Robin put these on correctly, I should just be able to lift the rest of this off, like so ...
Panel 4
Revers view to show Daskalov placing the remaining bandages in the tray Otto is holding. Otto's mouth is agape, his eyes saucers – he is clearly shocked by what he sees.
Daskalov: Now, after I've had a chance to ...
Daskalov: Otto, I told you this would be shocking. Do you need a bucket?
