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: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

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!

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.
