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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 713

Panel 1
In an austere, low-ceilinged, rock-walled room illuminated by monitor screens, a broad-shouldered man, the 'Brain,' stands near a woman, 'Pandora,' seated in front of the monitor consoles. We see them from behind.
Caption: Four hundred million kilometers away:
Brain: Did Adam report in?
Pandora: Not quite an hour ago.
Panel 2
Three-quarters view of Pandora and the Brain, although the Brain's head is off the top of the frame so we can't see his face. Pandora has a lean face and long, dark hair.
Pandora: He's got the final chain-of-communication in place, and the last batch of the vanguard is in training now.
Pandora: They should be ready for X-day, assuming you can get them the gear they'll need.
Panel 3
The Brain turns and moves towards the door to the room. There is very low gravity here he half-glides.
Brain: They will have their equipment, Pandora, and it will ensure our victory.
Pandora: You're betting an awful lot on an untested technology.
Panel 4
The Brain turns back to look at Pandora we see him mostly in silhouette.
Brain: It's not untested. At least, according to our friend.
Brain: The technology works. Getting it to where it needs to be is our challenge.
Panel 5
Medium shot of Pandora, turned back to look at the Brain.
Pandora: And if it doesn't work? What then?
Brain: Since I'll be leading the charge, I guess it will be up to you to take the reins of what's left, and regroup.
Panel 6
Pandora is turned back to the monitors again, looking frustrated.
Pandora: I hate it when you talk that way.
Brain: We all knew there would be risks when we undertook this adventure.
Brain: And of all of the team, I have the most confidence in you to have my back.

Panel 7
Pandora turns once more to look at the Brain.
Pandora: Speaking of that friend of yours you have three hours to get ready for your rendezvous.
Brain: I know Moe is gassing up the jalopy right now.

Panel 8
The Brain turns to leave the room again. We see him in silhouette but we also see him start to put on a distinctive-looking wraparound visor.
Pandora: Will it do any good to tell you to be careful?
Brain: Hey, you know I'm always careful.
