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.

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 398

Panel 1
Seamus, Nicole (wearing a new Anysuit) and Buford in the concourse at the Circumular 2 spaceport. An overhead sign indicates "To L-5 City." Their luggage (Buford has a medium-sized case of her own) trails along at their heels.
Caption: The next afternoon:
Nicole: We're going back to L-5 City?
Seamus: Briefly. In four days there will be a high-speed liner departing for Mars, which would have been uncomfortably high-grav for me before ...

Panel 2
Seamus, Nicole and Buford. Seamus spreads his arms wide to show his new svelte body.
Seamus: But with my new -- ah -- sveltetude, I should be able to manage 78 days in five gravs with no trouble.
Nicole: I'm not sure I'm up to that, to tell the truth.
Panel 3
Seamus, Nicole and Buford stop to check their luggage next to the gateway. A large holosign announces HAUGHTY XL-5 Departing for L-5 City 15:30.
Seamus: That's why you will be getting a complete restorative physical, including two days at Aine's Spa.
Nicole: Sounds great. What about Buford?
Panel 4
Seamus, Nicole and Buford continue to their departure gate. Seamus flashes some tickets at a gate attendant.
Seamus: Buford will of course get a traveler's physical, and since Beltapes don't do implants I'll see if I can get her fitted with an earpiece. Will that be okay with you?
Buford: So long as I can remoof it whenefer I want to, t'at will be fine.
