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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

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.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 392

Panel 1
Claud, Antigone, Hari, and Seamus standing outside the police center. A stretch hover-limo is parked on the street behind them. Hari is holding a small package under his left arm, with his right hand he points toward the building.
Antigone: They're late. I wonder what's going on?
Hari: Here they come.

Panel 2
Emerging from the building, Nicole (wearing her Sun-Divers jacket over her Anysuit, which isn't working properly) clings to George Ringo's arm as if she fears being dragged away. Behind them, Buford (dressed in the street clothes she was arrested in) follows, carrying a small pack.
Antigone (OP): Who's that with them?
Panel 3A
Medium close-up on Nicole. Her farraday-crown has been removed revealing a head with 8 days' growth of hair, with bald patches where the crown's bars were. She looks like a Holocaust/evil barber survivor.
No dialog.

Panel 3B
Close-up on Seamus, looking at Nicole. He looks shocked and appalled.
No dialog.
Panel 4
Hari steps forward to greet Ringo and Nicole, as Buford hangs back. He takes her hand gently in his.
Hari: Great to see you, Nicole.
Hari: Great work, George.
George: I couldn't have done it without some help from our friends.

Panel 5
George leads Nicole over to Claud. He smiles gently and holds her hand.
George: Claud's vid expose really sent the cockroaches scurrying, and destroyed our adversaries' resolve.
Claud: When you're recovered I hope I can get an exclusive.
Nicole: You bet, Claud.

Panel 6
Next up is Antigone, she and Nicole embrace.
George: Ms. Stone dug up the dirt that Claud dished, and, well, I doubt Rando Greene will be victimizing any women again for a long time.
Nicole: Thanks, Antigone.
Antigone: Glad to help, honey.

Panel 7A
Nicole stands before Seamus, looking up at him quizzically. There is an awkward silence.
No dialog.

Panel 7B
Nicole stands before Seamus, looking up at him quizzically.
Nicole: Uh, do I know you?

Panel 8A
Nicole stands before Seamus. Seamus looks pained. Nicole's eyes widen.
Seamus: I've lost quite a bit of weight, but surely you remember me?

Panel 8B
Nicole throws herself into embrace with Seamus. Both shedding tears.
Nicole: I'd know that voice anywhere, Seamus.
