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 Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Transcript For Strip 347

Panel 1
Nicole and Buford are both on the exercycles when a guard approaches them.
Guard: Oresme, you have another visitor.
Nicole: Already? Do you know who it is?
Panel 2
The guard has done an about-face and, with a sneer, is gesturing for Nicole to follow him. She is dismounting her exercycle in a hurry.
Guard: Do I look like your social secretary?
Guard: Come with me or I'll tell whoever it is you've refused the visit.
Nicole: Okay okay!
Panel 3
In the visitor's room, Nicole is looking at a new, different middle-aged man, this one clean-shaven, with a long chin.
Visitor: Good afternoon, Ms. Oresme, my name is George A. Ringo.
Visitor: Hari Copperton asked me to be your attorney, if you'll agree.
Panel 4
Looking past George at Nicole, who is looking skeptical.
Nicole: Please don't take this personally, Mr. Ringo, but I've already had to deal with an agent of my employer's adversaries claiming to represent me ...
George: I understand completely.
Panel 5
Looking past Nicole at George.
George: That's why Hari told me to tell you this:
George: At dinner, you had pork loin salad with date vinaigrette, but didn't care much for the anchovies.
Panel 6
Split panel -- in the first half, close-up of Nicole still looking skeptical. In the second half, she's smiling.
Nicole: I hereby consent to your representing me, Mr. Ringo.
George (OP): You can call me George if you want.
Panel 7
Nicole and George, side views, separated by the window.
Nicole: Okay, George, I've been wondering just how private these visits are?
George: Oh, you can safely assume everything's being recorded by your jailers.

Panel 8
Cut to the listening room where the cops are looking really annoyed.
George (OP): They can't use anything they learn here in court, though, because the recording is supposed to be illegal.
Nicole (OP): Then why do they do it?
George (OP): They can't seem to control their urge to snoop, I guess.
