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 2217

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 ...
Panel 2
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.
Panel 3
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.
Panel 4
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?
