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.

Transcript For Strip 493

Panel 1
A taxi flies among the city's buildings.
Buford: Do you always carry a set of mini-tools wit' you?
Nicole: You never know when you might want to drive some screws, Buford.

Panel 2
Inside the taxi, Buford sits at one end of the bench seat, with Ventura resting her head in crossed arms on her lap. At the other end of the bench, Ventura's rear end is partially disassembled and up in the air as Nicole is doing something with the innards. (Nicole has changed her anysuit pattern to something more contemporary.)
Buford: You mean, screw some drifes?
Ventura: When you have disengaged the sacral motivator unit, move it to one side so you can access the cauda interface panel cover.

Panel 3
Closer shot of Nicole up to her forearms in Ventura's opened-up ass.
Nicole: Do you know what this tracer looks like?
Ventura: I only know it's location. It can't be very large.

Panel 4
Angled shot with Ventura's head in the foreground and Nicole in the background.
Nicole: How will I know what it is?
Ventura: Can you give me a direct visual feed via your implant? I'll know it when I see it.

Panel 5
Closer shot on Nicole peering into Ventura.
Nicole: There's like a gazillion fibers and diodes in here.
Ventura: You've got to be close. Just poke around a bit -- carefully -- and see if it turns up.

Panel 6
Medium close-up on Ventura.
Ventura: Wait -- that's got to be it!
Ventura: Looks like a tiny white machine-screw shaft, with a blue light. See it?
Nicole (OP): Yeah.

Panel 7
Medium shot of Nicole. She's holding a half-cm-long device between her fingertips.
Nicole: Here's the little bugger.
Ventura: Okay, now please close me up, so I can get out of Buford's lap.

Panel 8
Medium 2-shot of Buford and Ventura.
Buford: I'm glad t'is little caper is about over.
Ventura: You should try looking up your own ass some time. It will open worlds for you.
