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

Not Safe [ Apr 24, 2022 ]

Starting Monday 4-25-2022, with part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, each strip installment has been extended to have six panels rather than four. We believe this will enable a smoother, fuller story flow for the reader. We will also be limiting uploads of QUANTUM VIBE to one installment per week so Scott has time to develop a new spin-off strip, Not-Safe.

Not-Safe will be a NSFW strip set in the Assimulation galaxy depicted in Volume 5, with Eithne Lamdagan as the central character. Our hope is it will bring in enough money so Scott can hire a colorist again and he can start producing more QUANTUM VIBE strips. More info coming soon.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 688

Panel 1
Looking past Nicole and Ed at Antigone still in the chair.
Antigone: Okay, I've warned your friends' guards. They're doubling their number for the next 12 hours.
Nicole: Yeah, but what about ...
Panel 2
An explosion from the doorway knocks Antigone out of her chair as Nicole and Ed instinctively cringe in reaction.
SFX: Ba-WHOOM!!!
Panel 3
Two very large men (not quite Terran enforcer-class but still scary) wearing shock-gauntlets barrel in through the ruined doorway and the vestibule.
Thug1: Shock and awe!
Panel 4
Suddenly a large net springs across the vestibule, snaring the thugs.
SFX: SPROING!
Thug 1: Hey!
Thug 2: Augh!

Panel 5
They fall in a long arc to the floor near Antigone, struggling helplessly as the net tightens up around them.
Thug 1: Dammit!
Thug 2: Wot the feek?

Panel 6
Antigone begins rising, a bit shakily, to her feet. She regards the thugs. We also see a shaken Nicole in the foreground right.
Antigone: Um, as booby-traps go, that was remarkably gentle.
Nicole: I'm glad I didn't think of barging in here that way.

Panel 7
Seamus is examining the mass-detector, which has gone inert.
Seamus: A little something I set up to activate in the event of a sudden barometric shift, as in the door exploding.
Seamus: Dammit, the shock-wave damaged my mass-detector.

Panel 8
Nicole joins Seamus in examining the mass-detector, as Antigone looks on.
Antigone: Uh, what do you want me to do with these two?
Nicole: Kick 'em a few times for me.
Seamus: Whatever you want, just keep them out of my hair.
