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!

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 483

Panel 1
The Farmer, clearly annoyed, is standing with Nicole next to a wheelbarrow full of compost. He is handing her a shovel.
Farmer: Since you seem to have trouble with the tilling, you can follow behind and spread this compost between the lines of stations.

Panel 2
Nicole is hefting a blade-full of the compost from the wheelbarrow. Meanwhile, two of the children come up behind her.
Nicole: This smells even worse than those jerks.

Panel 3
The two children push Nicole over into the wheelbarrow full of compost.
Children: Ha ha ha ha ha!
Nicole: Yowp!

Panel 4A
Medium close-up of one of the children laughing heartily.
Children: HA! NOW who smells bad?

Panel 4B
The shovel blade (we can see Nicole's compost-soiled hand on part of the handle) whacks that kid upside his head.
