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 2296

Panel 1
Cut back to Bok and Li in Li’s ship.
Bok: Geez, your whole family? Talk about vindictive.
Li: My first impulse was to kill that bastard on the spot.
Panel 2
Back to Li in the lion’s den, thinking furiously. We can see the two Enforcers behind him.
Caption: ‘But reason set in and I realized that I’d be unable to protect Nicole … that is, Alyss, or our kids, if I was killed there and then for my trouble.
Caption: ‘So … I played along, looking for an opening.’
Panel 3
Li and Barnhill.
Li: I … would need some time to get my family in the city to safety.
Barnhill: Of course. But don’t wait too long.
Barnhill: Send me the codes when you’re ready to evacuate.

Panel 4
The two enforcers are now standing either side of Li.
Li: You’re … remarkably trusting.
Barnhill: As I’ve explained, our victory is virtually guaranteed, either way.
Barnhill: But don’t take more than three days, or my trust will falter.
Li: My guards will see you out.
