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.

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 448

Panel 1
Back at the drawing room -- Seamus, Xie-Po, and Peng-Bo-Bo are seated in the overstuffed chairs.
Peng-Bo: There is one important thing that I do know about your project, Dr. O'Murchadha.
Peng-Bo: And that is, you have invested most of your own rather, if I may say, modest fortune in this project.

Panel 2
Closer 3-shot of Seamus, Xie-Po, and Peng-Bo
Peng-Bo: Clearly you have high confidence in a rather large pay-off, yes?
Seamus: Possibly, or perhaps I'm quite mad. I could lose it all.

Panel 3
Seamus, Xie-Po, and Peng-Bo. We can see Bo-Nu behind Peng-Bo, examining an ancient astrolabe he found on a shelf.
Peng-Bo: Ha-ha. Possibly. Your reputation does indicate a sometimes ... unstable personality.
Seamus: Thank you.
Peng-Bo: But that is also the classic mark of scientific genius.

Panel 4
Xie-Po jumps in.
Xie-Po: Let us get to the point, gentlemen.
Xie-Po: Mr. Peng-Bo has offered a ... handsome compensation for my shares in this ... enterprise.
Xie-Po: I believe it is in my best interest to accept that offer.

Panel 5
Seamus sits with the fingertips of both hands pressed together. He looks levelly at Xie-Po.
Seamus: The problem, Mr. Tong, is that under our agreement any transfer of shares, other than by inheritance, must be approved unanimously by the other shareholders.
Xie-Po (OP): Yes, I know that.

Panel 6
Now Peng-Bo looks levelly at Seamus.
Peng-Bo: We are hoping that you will help us deal with that problem, Dr. O'Murchadha.
Peng-Bo: We want you to contact the other shareholders and arrange a vote on the matter.

Panel 7
Three-shot. Seamus sits with his arms crossed.
Seamus: Why do you need me to call the vote? Mr. Tong could to that himself.
Peng-Bo: We feel that the vote is more likely to go our way with your endorsement.


Panel 8
Medium close-up on Peng-Bo, looking rather malevolent.
Seamus (OP): My ... endorsement?
Peng-Bo: As a visitor in my domain, you and your assistant are under my ... protection.
Peng-Bo: Certainly, you should grant me the courtesy of an endorsement, yes?
