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

We Made It! [ Jun 2, 2022 ]

Indiegogo box for the project showing total collection of $4808, 120% of goal.

Third try, as they say, is a charm.

The crowdfunding campaign for QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War Part 2 made its goal one day before the closing, and climbed a bit over the top in the final day.

Over the next week Scott will design the back cover and assemble the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books (as well as the cards and T-shirts) on hand in the second half of June and will ship them out to backers ASAP.

(The e-book version will also be released by then and we'll announce that date when we have it locked down.)

Please help Scott keep QUANTUM VIBE alive!

Transcript For Strip 856

Panel 1
Bill and Pearl are inside the lift when a sudden shaking knocks them sideways, with Pearl falling against Bill.
Caption: Inside the lift:
SFX: WHUMP!
Bill: What the hell!
Panel 2
Cut to Manny, on the control deck.
Manny: Something just launched out of the cargo bay!
Bill (electronic): Didja get a look at it?
Panel 3
Manny's hand pointing at a monitor. We see an image of Baines flying a single-engine hopper open to space with a human-sized capsule bundled behind him.
Manny: One of the cameras did. Got it on monitor 2, if you want to take a look.
Panel 4
Bill in the lift with Pearl. He's got his fingers to his temple and is looking at a holoimage about 15cm in front of his face. Pearl is standing by, blushing.
Bill: That's our Pinocchio, all right. Could he have Nicole in that capsule?
Panel 5
Manny in the control cabin.
Manny: Could have anything in it, Cap'n.
Manny: I recommend a thorough search to make sure he hasn't, uh, stashed her body in a cranny somewhere.
Panel 6
Pearl is emerging from the lift to the lounge deck, while Bill remains in the lift.
Bill: A gloomy thought but I agree with you.
Bill: Hugh, get up to cargo deck and see if you can get it re-sealed and pressurized. I'll grab my suit and meet you there.
Panel 7
On the lounge deck, Pearl joins Mineola, Dorothy, Fred and Nelson gathered around where Seamus is lying on a sofa that has been converted into a chaise lounge.
Pearl: How's he doing?
Dorothy: Sleeping, for the moment.
Panel 8
Focus is on sleeping Seamus with a gadget about the size of a cartoon boxing glove covering his right hand.
Pearl: Bill thinks that douche-bot took Nicole away with him.
Dorothy: ...
Dorothy: Let's not tell Seamus right away.
