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 470

Panel 1
Cut to Nicole and Ventura in a clothing boutique. Nicole is looking at an outfit displayed on a mannequin.
Nicole: Somehow I'd expected Huoxingian fashions to be more ... exotic.
Ventura: These days the popular styles seem to come from your L-5 City, or so the 'zeens say.

Panel 2
Nicole and Ventura stroll along an aisle, Nicole looking around to find some item of interest.
Nicole: That's what I get, coming from the bleeding edge of human civilization.
Ventura: What is it like -- are there many androids there?

Panel 3
Nicole has stopped to look at another mannequin
Nicole: Oh yeah, lots .. although we usually call them 'artifolk.'
Ventura: 'Artifolk.' Artificial folk? Does Dr. O'Murchadha own any artifolk?

Panel 4
Nicole continues strolling along, not noticing that Ventura is standing in stunned silence.
Nicole: Own? Of course not. He does own non-sapient A.I.s, though.
Nicole: But where we come from, artifolk -- self-aware and volitional -- are persons with the same rights as humans.
