Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]
UPDATE: Art in progress
We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate.
Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
Cut to: A parlor, where Stauder and Acharya are visiting Kāng Min-Chèng.
Caption: Sometime later, a visit to Kāng Min-Chèng, head of the city defense corps, Demônios de Combate:
Kāng: So you want to organize a defensive system, but a non-military one?
Stauder: Let me put it this way ...
Same scene new angle
Stauder: You're lived here for more than two centuries.
Stauder: Do you think most of the people in this city are cut out for military life?
Kāng: Sadly, no. Most of us resist regimentation, either overtly or covertly.
Acharya and Kāng
Acharya: We want to draw in as broad a range of people as possible, so that everyone who wants to help defend the city can do so in a meaningful way, with whatever skills they can bring.
Kāng: So, an auxiliary, then. There are numerous precedents for this.
Stauder, Acharya, and Kāng
Archarya: Well, that's great! We won't have to re-invent the wheel.
Kāng: Unfortunately auxiliaries fell out of fashion almost five centuries ago.
Stauder: Do we look like people who care about what's fashionable?
