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: Seamus - By Scott Bieser w/Zeke Bieser & Lea Jean Badellas

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.

Transcript For Strip 451

Panel 1
Back in the drawing room, a largish holoscreen has appeared in front of the fireplace.
Peng-Bo: So, how many other shareholders are there?
Seamus: Only three -- one at L-5 City now, one on Gannymede and one on Hyperion.
Panel 2
Two-shot of Xie-Po and Peng-Bo. The former looks alarmed, the latter, annoyed.
Xie-Po: Gannymede! Hyperion? That's one of Saturn's moons!
Xie-Po: It takes more than 22 huofen for a signal to reach Gannymede, and 63 huofen to reach Saturn!*
Caption: * About 33 minutes and 95.3 minutes, respectively.

Panel 3
Seamus is smiling smugly
Seamus: A bit more than 64 huofen, actually, since Saturn is nearly opposite Sol from us now.
Xie-Po (OP): Gaah!

Panel 4
Three-shot of the men. Xie-Po is grimmacing in frustration, Peng-Bo is calm, Seamus grins wryly.
Peng-Bo: I propose we dispense with small talk and get this done with two exchanges with Hyperion. That way we're not here more than 26 or 27 huoke*
Seams: Agreed. With any luck.
Caption: * Roughly 6 1/2 hours.
