Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Colors: Zeke Bieser Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
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.
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.
Inside a passenger 'safe area.' Nicole, Seamus and Murphy sit cheek-by-jowl among some other passengers. An armed crewman stands by, his hand cupped to his ear.
Nicole (thoughtsend): So, pirates?
Seamus (thoughtsend): Most likely, yes.
Murphy (thoughtsend): What should we do?
Close-up on Nicole, Seamus and Murphy.
Seamus (thoughtsend): Until we know more, stay calm and follow the crews' instructions.
Seamus (thoughtsend): When we learn more, follow my instructions.
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.
Seamus (thoughtsend): Why do you think I haven't?
Cut to Santos leading his command-deck officers down a curving ramp.
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.
Bartoli and Santos.
Bartoli: What do you think will happen?
Santos: Best scenario is they'll strip us of everything of value, then send us on our way.
Bartoli: Worst scenario?
Santos looks at Bartoli through narrowed eyes.
Santos: Our android crew get sold into slavery on Europa ...
Santos: … the rest of us get vacuumed.
Santos: Any other questions?
The Argosy officers round a corner, and are confronted by a group of the pirates, backed by combat-bots. The officers' eyes widen, especially Mueller's.
Mueller (trembling): Oh. my. Gore. It's ...
Big reveal of the pirate chief Jesús Hernandez, flanked by other pirates and combat-bots.
Hernandez: The Space Pirate Jesús Hernandez. And as of now you are at my service.
