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 636

Panel 1
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.
Panel 2
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.
Panel 3
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.

Panel 4
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.

Panel 5
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.
Panel 6
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?
Panel 7
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.
Panel 8
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.
