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: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 2292

Panel 1
Cut to: Li in negotiation with two managerial types looking over a large holo-diagram in the center of a round table. Li speaks from a cameo.
Li: I was good at scrounging resources and setting up deals, arranging supply chains.
Li: I had spent more than 300 years establishing the needed contacts.
Panel 2
Now Li is conferring with two other floor-manager types at some factory. Large machinery in the background.
Caption: ‘I traded Yttrium and Dysprosium for Neodymium and pig iron for the ferro-fabber who used some of it to make updated machinery for the farmers on other worlds still willing to sell food to us.’
Panel 3
In some concourse, Li is confronted by a needle-nosed fellow in dark clothes. Li is noticing that two very wide-shouldered men dressed similarly have come up behind him.
Caption: ‘By and by my efforts came to the attention of the enemy.’
Needle-nose (quietly, small letters): Your presence is requested.

Panel 4
Needle-nose leads Li down a corridor, with the two enforcers close behind.
Caption: ‘I’ve gotten out of much hairier situations before, and since.
Caption: ‘But this was my chance to probe the enemy for weaknesses.’
