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

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 591

Panel 1
Murphy, now wearing skingloves, is holding the magnetic resonance scanner over the corpse's head. As Nicole looks on.
Murphy: Well, there is a blockage in the basal artery.
Nicole: Ah, they were right after all. Let's get out of here.

Panel 2
Murphy hands Nicole a device that looks like a large syringe, but with a 40 cm long, thin plastic tube at the business end and a couple of wheels at the other end. Nicole is also wearing the skingloves.
Murphy: Not so fast. We need to get a sample of the blocking material.
Murphy: Here, take this and run the tube into her left nostril.
Panel 3
Murphy holds the scanner over the corpse's head, while Nicole manipulates the little wheels on the syringe – looking very uncomfortable about it.
Murphy: Use the wheels to guide the probe through the nasal passage and into the meninges.
Murphy: Straight .. now a bit left … a bit downward … now to the right … that's it.
Panel 4
Murphy and Nicole continue working with the sampler syringe. Nicole is looking more and more distressed.
Murphy: Okay, at this point you'll need to use the micro-cutter. There's a red button next to the left wheel.
Murphy: A little further …
Nicole: There's blood coming out her nose!

Panel 5
Murphy and Nicole continue this process, Nicole looking like she wants to crawl out of her own skin.
Murphy: That's to be expected.
Murphy: Okay, stop. You're at the blockage.
Murphy: Now, gently pull the back-stopper to draw the material into the probe.
Panel 6
Murphy and Nicole. Nicole is looking even more distressed.
Murphy: Well done! Now, slowly withdraw the probe, out the way you came.
Nicole: Eeeeee. Blood everywhere, everywhere.
Panel 7
With some relief, Nicole hands the bloody syringe over to Murphy.
Murphy: Okay, now to use the molecular spec-analyzer ...
Nicole: Thank goddard this is over …
Murphy: Oh, we're not done yet. If this is what I think it is we'll have to take more samples.

Panel 8
Same shot, but now Nicole is no longer visible. Murphy looks down at where Nicole has slumped.
Murphy: Okay, you can take a break for a few minutes.
Nicole (OP): You're too kind.
