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 42

Panel 1
View of Mars (aka Huǒxīng) from space. It is largely terra-formed, with an ocean spanning much of the northern hemisphere and the mighty Valles Marineris spread just south of the equator, and itself partially filled with water. There are water clouds but only about a fourth as much coverage as on Terra.
Caption: Huǒxīng, aka Mars.
Caption (Seamus): 'We have the Helio-Flyer reserved and I have an assistant now who will pilot the craft, since I will be unable to perform that task.'

Panel 2
Low-aerial view of a mansion, which has a broad balcony extending outward from its third storey. At this distance we can just make out an elderly man in something that looks like an overstuffed Barcalounger, facing the low Martian Sun.
Seamus: 'You'll get to meet her when we get up to your neighborhood. You'll like her – she's very bùqūbùnáo.'

Panel 3
Medium full-shot of the man, our Po Xu-ke, listening to Seamus on his own Screen device. Po looks ancient, bald-headed, is wrapped in saffron robes in his mobile barcalounger.
Seamus: 'I will of course inform you when Stage 1 is successfully completed. Until then, I remain your friend, Seamus Ó Murchadha .'

Panel 4
A beautiful femiform android, walks up next to Po. He looks ahead wistfully through sightless eyes.
Android: A message from a friend, Master Po?
Po: One of the few I have left anymore, I'm afraid.
