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.
Back aboard the Cissonius, Seamus is conscious now, a bit groggy still in the chaise lounge, still has the thing on his hand. Pearl and Mineola sit close-by, Fred is in a chair not far away.
Seamus: So Carl's going to live? Thank science.
Seamus: But why isn't Nicole here? Where is she?
Seamus, Pearl and Mineola. The women look reticent.
Pearl: Uh, yeah, Nicole ...
Mineola: Victoria thought you should rest, but …
Mineola: Baines got her. Took her off the boat.
Seamus bolts upright in alarm. The women try to calm him.
Seamus: Off the boat!! Where?
Pearl: Calm down! You're still concussed!
Mineola: We know where they went, Seamus.
Fred pipes up, Seamus and the women turn to look at him.
Fred: Took her to a passing freighter, GENSAXWAL registry, Bill said.
Fred: Likely taking her to ...
Seamus has bolted out of the chaise lounge and is halfway to the central lift in one leap.
Fred: … Herschel Station … uh …
Fred: Yeah, go see the captain.
In the control cabin, now it's Seamus poking head and shoulders through the hatch as he speaks with Bill Abbot.
Bill: I'm sorry Seamus, but there's no way we can catch them.
Bill: Without a strong EM field close-by they're faster than we are.
Seamus: But … we ...
Seamus rests his chin on his forearm, looking defeated at last.
Seamus: Oh god … Nicole ...
Seamus: What will those savages do to you? How can I help you now?
Same shot, Seamus suddenly raises his head, eyes widened, in reaction to what he hears.
Murphy (OP thoughtsend): Seamus? Seamus? It's Murphy. Can you hear me?
