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.

Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]

UPDATE: Art in progress

We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!

At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.

You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate.

Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 26

Panel 1
Aerial view of 26th-Century Brussels. The city should be vaguely recognizable from today but also have various newer structures, traffic-ways, etc. A thin haze permeates the lower levels.
Caption: Brussels, European District.
Caption: Commercial capital of Western Terra.
Voice (from somewhere in city): How long will you be gone this time?
Panel 2
The luxurious bedroom of Wayne Bobinardi. Wayne is overseeing the packing of his luggage, which is being done by an android servant. Also in the room is Alissa, Wayne's wife. Wayne is tall, tan, broad-shouldered, greying at the temples. Alissa is of Armenian descent and still retains much of her youthful glamour.
Wayne: Depends on how things go, Alissa. Anywhere from two weeks to several months.
Panel 3
Two-shot of Wayne and Alissa.
Alissa: Wayne, Jack will be graduating in May.
Wayne: Excellent. Boston University is a great admin school.
Panel 4
Alissa looks at Wayne scornfully. Wayne is slightly embarrassed by his gaffe.
Alissa: Jack couldn't get in to Boston, remember? He's been at Van Rompuy Politek for three years now.
Wayne: Oh! Uh, that's right, how silly of me.
Panel 5
The android servant has completed packing the large bag. Wayne opens the smaller case.
Wayne: Thank you, Cleo, I will pack my own toiletries kit.
Servant: Yes, Sir.
Alissa: It would mean a lot to Jack if you could attend the ceremony.
Panel 6
Wayne has moved into the adjacent bathroom, is gathering up shaving gear etc for his kit.
Wayne: If time permits, I would be delighted.
Alissa: Can't you make the time? Jack really looks up to you.

Panel 7
Wayne turns to face Alissa, gently placing a finger under her chin and looking at her levelly.
Wayne: My wife, we have often had this conversation.
Wayne: The needs of the Mercorp outweigh the needs of its officers.
Alissa: Or their families, yes, I know.

Panel 8
Toiletries kit assembled, Wayne walks out of the bathroom with his wife following in his wake. He glances back at her with some annoyance.
Alissa: My parents were also officers.
Alissa: But what is the great Mercorrp GENSAXWAL to a boy who needs his father?
