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.

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 2482

Panel 1
Otto sits back, somewhat stunned.
Diana: I can’t give you what you seem to want.
Otto: But, why? I’ve saved your life, twice! Doesn’t that mean anything?
Panel 2
Diana takes Otto’s hand in both of hers.
Diana: Otto, I am grateful. And I hope we’ll always be friends.
Diana: But, you’re a sensitive soul and it would be a mistake to take you to bed out of gratitude.
Otto: But … but ...
Panel 3
Diana braces Otto
Diana: Otto, sexual attraction is not based on gratitude, it’s not based on a sense of a debt owed.
Diana: It isn’t rational, and really, it isn’t fair.
Diana: It either happens, or it doesn’t.
Panel 4
Otto sits there, looking crushed.
Diana: I mean, your family is rich.
Diana: And I have to start over almost from scratch.
Diana: If I were a dishonest person I’d tell you I want you and live off your family fortune.
Panel 5
Diana and Otto
Diana: But you’d figure out the truth sooner or later.
Diana: Otto, you’re young, good-looking, and have a bright future.
Diana: Someday you’ll find your true love, and you’ll be much happier.
Panel 6
Otto has gotten up and moves toward the door. Diana looks after him, sadly.
Otto: Como desexes. I should go now.
Otto: Good luck getting your life back together.
