First Seen: Fri 2012-03-30
Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
In the visitors' room, we look over Nicole's shoulder at a middle-aged Latino man, with a friendly demeanor, dressed in conservative business attire.
Caption: Inside the jail, Nicole meets her visitor:
Bustamante: Herberto Bustamante. I understand you've gotten in a bit of trouble, and I'm here to help.
Nicole: Are you from Smith & Holder Resolutions?
View of the visitors side of the visitors' room. We've seen this scene before, although at present there are no other visitors besides Bustamante.
Bustamante: Yes, that's right. They assigned me to advocate for you.
Nicole: I haven't been able to call anyone. How did you know I'm here?
Closer-in shot, looking over Bustamante's shoulder at Nicole. She's looking thoughtful.
Bustamante: Ah, the company has an arrangement with the Lunar authorities to notify us in the event one of our clients is arrested.
Nicole: I guess that makes sense.
Looking over Nicole's shoulder at Bustamante. He is smiling like a satisfied cat.
Nicole: Although I don't know why they'd honor that agreement but not allow me the tel-call their own laws call for.
Bustamante: No matter, I'm here now, and you'll be taken care of.
