Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke Bieser Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]
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.)
Cut to: Outer space. A spacecraft is moving across the starfield, which has one very bright, almost-disc in one corner.
Caption: Five days earlier, 18 million km sunward of Jupiter:
Voice 1: I still can't see it, Mike.
Voice 2: It's here, I'm sure of it.
Inside the spacecraft control cabin, we see Spike and Mike peering intently at the monitors.
Spike: Wait – wait! There's something – it's like a hole in the starfield.
Mike: Woah! Better put on the brakes, Spike.
Exterior shot, the craft approaches a large, potato-shaped, black-black object.
Spike: Jiminy Crisco! It's just a faint, fuzzy patch on the radar.
Spike: How can we even tell how big it is?
Mike: Let's see if we can swing around it.
Inside the cockpit again with Spike and Mike.
Spike: How can something have an albedo of ZERO?
Mike: It's not quite zero, but close enough, this far from Sol.
