Quantum Vibe, Volume 2: Murphy On Sale! [ Mar 3, 2014 ]

Hey kids! The next print installment of Quantum Vibe is on sale now.

Volume 2: Murphy picks up with Nicole safely away from her imprisonment on Luna, bound for Mars, so that Seamus may take care of some business matters. Nicole quickly learns that Mars is a planet of intrigue disguised as civility, and it's not long before she stumbles head long into plots so twisted you'd need an AI to sort them out. Fortunately, she makes friends with one.

BONUS: For the first time, you will get to see the first 60 pages converted from black & white to full color. Now you get to experience the entire Murphy saga in "living color". As I'm sure many of you agree, it's good to have a colorist. Click here to get your very own copy.


The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
The students have rushed to Li, who is laying on his side, in agony. Nicole is pulling Murphy away so she can chew her out. Murphy looks stunned.
Nicole: What the shuck, Murphy? Have you lost your mind?
Panel 2
Two-shot of Murphy and Nicole. Murphy is still stunned, Nicole is enraged.
Murphy: I I thought he I thought you
Nicole: You weren't thinking, you stupid bucket of bolts!
Nicole: You're angry because you can't have Seamus and you took it out on poor Li!

Panel 3
Nicole pushes Murphy away to walk towards Li as a student carrying a pair of long poles rushes past them.
Murphy: No, I ...
Nicole: Just stay away from me!

Panel 4
Nicole kneels beside the supine Li. The poles have been laid along either side of him. One of the students has a medi-kit and is giving him a hypo-shot.
Nicole: Oh Li, I'm so sorry!
Li: Not your fault {gasp!}
Li: But this is not exactly the way I want you to unh remember me.
Panel 5
One of the students touches a button at the end of each of the poles, and a lozenge-shaped bubb materializes around Li. The area over his head and torso remain open.
Nicole: I won't leave you now, Li.
Li: But you must. You have important work to do, as do I.
Li: We will meet again after the hard work is done, and enjoy a lot more time together.
Panel 6
Two of the students lift the bubb with Li in it, like a stretcher. But he raises a hand to stop them. Nicole is surprised by what he says next.
Li: Wait. I must have a word with the gynoid.
Student: Yes, master.
Panel 7
Nicole, still angry with Murphy, stands a few meters away as a shaken Murphy stands beside Li's gurney-bubb.
Li: I want you to know, first of all, that I forgive you. I understand what anger does.
Li: But you must also forgive yourself.
Panel 8
Closer two-shot of Murphy and Li. Murphy looks like she'd be crying if she could.
Li: Promise me you'll look after her, bring her back to me safe. She's more precious than words can describe.
Murphy: I I promise.
