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 413

Panel 1
Seamus, Nicole, Ventura and Buford are again walking along a city street. Buford is loudly blowing her nose into a handkerchief someone has provided.
Buford: HONK!
Nicole: How could Buford be sick? She checked out fine at L-5 City and had all her vaccs.

Panel 2
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus, walking along.
Seamus: It's possible a new strain has developed which is immune to our prophylactics.
Seamus: But given the season, I think it more likely this is an allergy.

Panel 3
Another 2-shot of Nicole and Seamus, showing a bit of city skyline
Nicole: Season? Allergy?
Seamus: Up to now you and Buford have only experienced closed, filtered environments.
Seamus: But Huoxing has a natural ecosystem, derived from Terra's.

Panel 4
Four-shot of Buford, Nicole, Ventura, Seamus (maybe a vignette). Buford is sneezing again.
Seamus: Suffice to say, at certain times of the year various plants and fungi generate trillions of airborne spores and pollen grains ...
Buford: ut-CHOO!!!
Seamus: Which plague certain unfortunates whose mucous membranes are sensitive to them.


Panel 5
The quartet approaches the entrance to an apothecary shop.
Buford: Wait, is this the Apothecary's? How did you find it so easily?
Nicole: His implant.
Nicole: He called up a local directory from the Network and got directions.

Panel 6
Inside the shop, the quartet passes by some display shelves full of various nostrums.
Seamus: If you'll put your visor on, that and your earpiece will give you a similar capability.
Buford: I hate that visor -- it makes me look stupid.

Panel 7
Seamus is now standing at a counter, behind which is a female Huoxingian of Han extraction. Buford is right behind him, holding a small box of something.
Seamus:
Buford: Hey, what about this?

Panel 8
The apothecary doesn't quite suppress a giggle as she looks at the box. Buford is chagrined, Seamus and Nicole are grinning.
Shopkeeper: {hee-hee}
Buford: What?
Nicole: The visor's real-time translations help you NOT look stupid.
