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.
Project Complete! [ Oct 31, 2023 ]
We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive>, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.
Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.
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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
