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.

What Comes Next [ Mar 18, 2024 ]

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

Transcript For Strip 621

Panel 1
In the foreground, we see Seamus sitting hip-deep in disassembled gadgetry, intently doing something to a circuit board with a tiny laser-welder. In the background, Murphy stands just inside the doorway to his suite.
Murphy: Seamus. I … was hoping you could advise me?
Seamus: Hurm.
Panel 2
Murphy draws closer. Seamus doesn't look up, continues working.
Murphy: Hope you're not unhappy with me but I've been trying to help Buford's boyfriend find out who murdered his sister.
Seamus: Hurm.

Panel 3
Murphy is as close as she can get to where Seamus is squatting. She leans forward a bit.
Murphy: I've been trying to hack into Vesta Vista's network, but I keep getting stymied.
Murphy: Can you help me? Or at least, give me some hacking tips?
Seamus: Hurm.
Panel 4
Now Murphy is looking annoyed.
Murphy: Seamus, are you even listening to me?
Seamus: Yes, I am, and no, I won't help you.
Panel 5
Murphy is taken aback.
Murphy: You … won't--?
Seamus: As I said, you should have avoided this entanglement to begin with. I am leaving Vesta in four days, with or without you.
Panel 6
Murphy is at a loss for words, starting to get angry.
Murphy: I … I … alright, then.
Seamus: Any other questions?
Panel 7
Murphy exits through the doorway in the background, leaving Seamus to work in silence.
[No dialog]

Panel 8
Seamus continues working.
Seamus: {tsk} Not enough curiosity to ask me what I'm doing ...
