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 - By Scott Bieser

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 532

Panel 1
In a circular room, Seamus and Shen, with the security team fanned out around them, approach a kiosk with consoles on opposite sides.
Shen: You have all the relevant specifications and data?
Seamus: Of course. You have the funding?

Panel 2
Seamus and Shen stand on opposing sides of the kiosk, pulling out their personal Screens. The security team surrounds Shen, but one of them keeps his eyes on Seamus.
Shen: Of course. I will load it into the escrow account now.
Seamus: Likewise. So I've been wondering ... if they're disarmed, how will the commoners defend themselves against predators?

Panel 3
Seamus and Shen place their Screens, against the consoles.
Shen: That's what the peacekeepers are for.
Seamus: I was told the peacekeepers are for keeping the general peace and have no legal duty to defend commoners or their property. Is that not true?

Panel 4
Seamus and Shen, Shen starting to look irritated.
Shen: It is ... not practical for the peacekeepers to have such a legally-enforceable duty.
Shen: You ask a lot of questions, Dr. O'Murchadha.
Seamus: That's how I get answers, Mr. Peng-Bo.
