BHP At Porcfest XI!

  PorcFest XI: Free State Project Porcupine Freedom Festival - June 22-29, 2014

Come see Scott and Frank at PorcFest XI this summer! We'll be running with the free-staters of New Hampshire selling books and talking up your favorite online web comic, Quantum Vibe.

Porcfest is a week long festival held by the Free State Project at Roger's Camp Ground in northern New Hampshire, just north of the beautiful White Mountain National Forest.

To our fans in the New England area and those north of the New Hampshire border, this is a great chance to come meet Quantum Vibe creator, Scott Bieser. So, dust off your passports, smile politely at the border patrol, and hope to see you this summer!

Stay tuned for more details!


Quantum Vibe, Volume 2: Murphy On Sale!

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
Exterior view of the L5-City. It is an enormous, jumbled complex of artificial habitats orbiting at the Terra-Luna Lagrange 5 point.
Caption: L5-City
Nicole (from somewhere in the City): No, Mom, I'm still working at Audio-Chrome.

Panel 2
Inside a concourse within one of the city habitats. A dazzling, almost incomprehensible jumble of shapes, platforms, railings, and people (themselves often of weird shapes) some of whom are flying through the open spaces in their Bubbs. Somewhere in the midst of this is Nicole, riding in her Bubb.
Nicole: They give me flex-time, so I can attend Philbert's shows.

Panel 3
Full-length shot of Nicole gliding along in her Bubb. She has one palm placed along-side her face, with her fingertips over her ear, indicating she's having a tele-convo with someone (her Mom) via her 'Plant. The hand gesture is more a social habit than a technical requirement – it's so people don't think you're talking to yourself. We can see some other people flying by in their own Bubbs.
Nicole: Yes. No. Yes, I'm still covering expenses for both of us.

Panel 4
Medium close-up on Nicole, her hand aside her face, rolling her eyes in annoyance.
Nicole: He's going to be a big hit real soon, Mom, you should hear him perform.


Panel 5
Full-length shot of Nicole flying away from us, into what looks like a major traffic zone of flying Bubbs – something like an aerial turnpike, with no pedestrians.
Nicole: {sigh} Mom, we've been over this a hundred times already.

Panel 6
Medium shot of Nicole flying in her Bubb, we can see other people in their Bubs flying along all sides of her in a fairly tight formation.
Nicole: It's not that I don't appreciate the education you paid for.

Panel 7
Medium close-up on Nicole, she's grimmacing and has her eyes shut for a moment as she contains her frustration.
Nicole: Mom, no … Mom, will you listen?

Panel 8
Suddenly Nicole's Bubb stops in a chain collision with the other Bubs in front and behind. The Bubs instantly expand to contain their users, cushioning the impacts and preventing harm.
SFX: BUDDADUMP!!!
