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.
Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]
Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.
Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.
Bok is at lower left, superimposed on a security-cam view of citizens fighting with Libérateurs. His Las Noticías Indelicadas logo is in the other lower corner.

Bok: On Day 7 of the Invasion, sporadic violence continues as the so-called ‘Libérateurs’ enforce their declared lockdown.
Cut to Jerome Falstaff on his own set with his own Noticícias Increditável logo.
Jerome: Invaders continue to pour in through the city’s Displacer network, establishing themselves in sphere after sphere.
Jerome: In contrast to the initial arrival, Libérateurs in the spheres later penetrated are finding the citizenry already in hiding.
Back to Bok. Behind him is file footage of Sergio Cooper.
Bok: Both Cooper Seguridad and Proteção Griswalds are advising citizens to shelter in place, and avoid confrontations with the well-shielded Libérateurs.
Bok: Sergio Cooper would only tell me that a response to the invasion is being assembled.
Back to Jerome. Behind him is a view of the Segundu Azul bank, being swarmed by snappers.
Jerome: Security forces are already fighting back, at certain key locations.
Jerome: One of them is Segundo Azul, the largest banking institution in the city.
Jerome: The building is shielded, but has little in the way of weaponry.
Back to Bok, who narrates as in the background, Eva Jeanne roars past the Segundo Azul building, guns blazing.
Bok: … at least until Alyss Roaz showed up in the Eva Jeanne, which was originally designed to fight a whole planet.
Jerome looking a bit sullen, against a backdrop of Eva Jeanne flying past debris of blasted snappers.
Jerome: At least ONE of the Pillars is doing more than hunkering down.
Jerome: Of course, it helps to have one’s own personal battleship.
