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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser

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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 271

Panel 1
Seamus and Sharkisian are in a treatment room. Prominent in the frame is a large, oblong open box that looks like a high-tech opened casket. Seamus is just wearing a towel wapped around his loins, and is looking at the box ruefully.
Seamus: Are you sure it's large enough for me?
Sharkisian: I had it re-scaled to your dimensions.
Panel 2
Sharkisian looks over the shoulder of a technician (a female furry) who is manning a control console. Seamus is dithering.
Seamus: You've screened the protocols for all ambiguities?
Sharkisian: Do you need help getting into the vat, Dr. O Murchadha?
Panel 3
Seamus is in the vat (sans towel but we only see the upper half of him). Sharkisian is standing next to the vat, tapping and scribbling on a hand-held Screen.
Seamus: You said I'll come out 50 kilos lighter?
Sharkisian: At most, but no guarantees except that you'll stop growing.
Panel 4
A lid has formed over the vat, and it fills with a gas which instantly renders Seamus unconscious.
Sharkisian: Pleasant dreams, O Murchadha.
