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: This Means War (Part 1) - By Scott Bieser

We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]

Indiegogo box for the project showing total collection of $4808, 120% of goal.

Third try, as they say, is a charm.

The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.

Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.

(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)

Transcript For Strip 601

Panel 1
Nigel, Buford, Nicole, and Murphy are standing in a causeway. Nigel is holding a Screen and Murphy is pointing to it.
Murphy: It turns out four of the families are Beltapes, and three are Baselines, and one are Spyders.
Murphy: I've transmitted the Beltapes' addresses to your Screen, you interview them. Nicole and I will handle the others.
Panel 2
Nigel and Buford sitting in the living room of a middle-aged Beltape couple.
Beltape father: Hannah felt something was wrong and insisted we get a second examination.
Beltape mother (Hannah): The new examiner – a Dr. Foster – confirmed it was a stroke, but it seemed odd to him, too.
Panel 3
Nicole and Murphy in another living room, talking to a middle-aged man and a teenaged girl.
Man: So the examiner took a sample for analysis.
Girl: But later he said there was nothing unusual – it was just one of those things.
Panel 4
Nigel and Buford in another living room interviewing a lone woman Beltape.
Woman: When I t'ink about it, Dr. Greenberg seemed a bit, well, pensive.
Woman: Like he had somet'ing on his mind but didn't want to say.

Panel 5
Nicole and Murphy in yet another living room, talking with two men, one looks about 20 years older than the other.
Younger man: I wanted to press the issue – but Dad talked me out of it.
Older man: What's done is done, and picking at the wound won't help it heal.

Panel 6
The father and son begin bickering, while Nicole and Murphy exchange glances.
Younger man: The 'gift' Vesta Vista sent us certainly helped you heal.
Older man: You gotta be practical, Michael! That cash'll help us start our dream business!
Younger man: Your dream.
Panel 7
Buford and Nigel stand outside a doorway, behind which an annoyed male Beltape stands, with a female crying into his shoulder.
Male Beltape: Whatever you're after, get lost!
Male Beltape: My daughter has suffered enough!

Panel 8
Back in the causeway, Nigel, Buford, Nicole and Murphy have a quick huddle.
Buford: We got to t'ree out of four ...
Nigel: I … I feel completely drained.
Nicole: Do we have enough now?
Murphy: First thing tomorrow we'll go see Nina's supervisor.
