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 2431

Panel 1: How not to move your domicile

Step 1: Schedule your move at the end of July, during the hottest Texas summer since 1931.

(TBH, this was kind of imposed on us by my now-former housemate, 'R,' who chose to depart at this time.

Panel 2: Step 2: During the week when you should be packing, make an emergency drive to San Antonio so your now-former Housemate can retrieve her beloved Jeep whicfh has been with her flaky mechanic friend for the last four months.

(The Jeep still won't pass the smog test but "R" was able to get it back home so she could put it on a trailer for her move.)

Panel 3: Step 3: The day before the big move, just after collecting your new keys, trip over a lip in the walkway, and break your fall with your ribs.

Panel 4: Step 4: On Moving Day, you're only 80 pct packed (because Step 2) (and you have way too much stuff anyway) so you're frantically 'tetrising' stuff into boxes while your hired helpers (who apparently never played Tetris load the big-ass U-Haul truck you rented.

Panel 5: Step 5: At the new digs, the hired helpers, apparently over-booked, haul in furniture and boxes at warp speed, dropping things wherever, leaving my place an almost un-naigable jumble of boxes and furniture.

To be fair, this flat is a 2nd-floor walk-up and it was hot as hell.

Panel 6: Step 6: Because of Step 2, you still haven't packed out your kitchen or cleaned out the old place. So you rent a smaller truck and take care of business.

Kudos to my former landlord for being understanding and allowing an extra day, and fully refunding my deposit.

Special thanks to my younger son, Ian, who worked his butt off helping his crippled old man.
