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 Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]
The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!
QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks how does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism. And speaking of, young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.
As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!
Cut to exterior, entrance to 'Ignition Pizza' restaurant.
Buford (from inside): And for all t'at trouble, you only got a scan of t'eir enemies list?
Murphy (from inside): Yes, I'm afraid so.
Inside the restaurant, Murphy, Nicole, Buford and Nigel are seated around a table. Nicole has her right hand laid affectionately on Murphy's left wrist. Murphy is downcast.
Murphy: It confirms what we suspected, but doesn't give us anything we can go to Oday Friedman with.
Murphy: And it doesn't give us a clue as to why Vesta Vista killed those people.
Nigel and Murphy
Nigel: Don't blame yourself, Murphy. Festa Fista is a powerful outfit, maybe too powerful.
Nigel: I'm t'inking maybe t'e only way I can get justice for Nina is just go shoot t'at bastard Frumm.
Buford, Nigel and Murphy.
Buford: You can't do t'at, Nigel! You'll become an outlaw! An outcast!
Murphy: Yes, the Belt has neither prisons nor executioners but the consequences for such an action are still quite severe.
Nigel, Murphy and Nicole. Nicole is distracted by something off-panel right.
Nigel: I see you'fe done your homework, studying our customs.
Murphy: I didn't want to screw up again.
Nicole: Looks like we have company.
A pudgy, beady-eyed man with a douche-bag mustache has approached our heroes, now standing between Nicole and Buford.
Eric: Hi, my name is Eric.
Eric: I understand you are seeking some information.
Eric: Do you have augrams?
Nicole and Buford regard Eric warily.
Nicole: What do you take me for?
Eric: I can prove I'm on the level. Just follow me.
The Scoobies rise from their seats to follow in Eric's wake as he walks away.
Murphy (Thoughtsend): A trap? A waste of time?
Nicole (thoughtsend): Could be either, but it's not like we have any other leads.
Nicole (thoughtsend): So long as we stay together, I'm sure we can deal with any skulduggery.
