QUANTUM VIBE: ASSIMILATION on Sale Soon! [ Nov 1, 2017 ]
The current Quantum Vibe story arc is drawing to a close, with the final strip in the story going live on Friday, November 10.
You know what this means, don't you?
This means Scott will be busting-ass through November to get the collected volume of QUANTUM VIBE: ASSIMULATION assembled and available for sale by the first of December! The front cover art has been completed and is shown here.
We will announce the exact sale date before Thanksgiving.
Also, the strip will be taking a three-week break while Scott gears up to produce the next exciting story in the QUANTUM VIBE universe. Tentatively titled "Château Périlleux," this story takes place mostly in 31st-Century "France" -- that is, the independent, intergalactic, free-trade space-city also known as "Bubbleopolis," "Novo Paolo," "Kūchū Rōkaku," or simply, "Oz."
When we last saw Diana Martelli, who we met in the "Venus 23" story arc, she had taken a job with Juan Goméz, a private investigator. Her life is mostly filled with investigating insurance-fraud and divorce cases, pretty hum-drum. Everything changes when Goméz and Martelli are hired to solve the cold-case murder of the gynoid, Hayami. Her investigation takes her through the various realms within "French" society, where she meets a variety of other-worldly yet strangely-familiar characters. And the solution to this case opens up a glimpse of a conspiracy which threatens the future of "France" itself.

OUR STORY THUS FAR (PART 2)
Meanwhile, on the planet Huoxing (Mars), Po Xu-Ke, oldest known human and Seamus' best friend, was breathing his last.
Po was attended by his beloved, the bound concubine Veronica, who'd been with him for a century. He promised that when he died she'd get part of his great fortune and her freedom.
Veronica loved Po, and would not leave him while he lived. But after he died, a pair of greedy nephews determined his promise to her would not be fulfilled.
During her sun-dive, Nicole had set off a pattern of nuclear explosions, which were recorded at various points throughout the solar system. Their first stop for the data retrieval was a remote station orbiting Venus.
On that excursion they were attacked by a larger craft, which attempted to capture them. The ship was believed to have been sent by the East Terran mercorp, Wokka-Dng-Hoy.
Whoever sent that ship learned the hard way, not to mess with Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha.
Also at Venus, Nicole and Seamus stopped in the floating Pellucidar Station to visit Nicole's mom, Vanessa Oresme, who works as part of a project to terraform that hot-house planet.
This is how Nicole learned that Seamus was a genetic donor as well as consultant to the osmotic cloning project which had produced her.
