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

Project Complete! [ Oct 31, 2023 ]

Guido and Kennerly celebrate the Quantum Vibe Omnibus 1 project completed and exceeding goal.

We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.

Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 724

Seamus (thoughtsend): Until we know more, stay calm and follow the crews' instructions.
Seamus (thoughtsend): When we learn more, follow my instructions.

Panel 3
Nicole cocks an eye at Seamus, who smiles back at her wryly.
Nicole (thoughtsend): I can't believe you haven't hacked into the ship's comms to get the inside scoop.

Santos: Strider, make sure Mueller doesn't try to run and hide somewhere.
Santos: I don't want any surprises when I deal with these pirates.
Strider: Aye, sir.

Panel 5

Santos: Our android crew get sold into slavery on Europa ...
