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.

The Transcript For This Page
Exterior view, the space-schooner Spanish Wells is rocketing away from Mercury.
Nicole (from the ship): This is some ride you found for us, Seamus.
Aboard the schooner, Nicole and Seamus are strapped into acceleration couches. Seamus is sort of over-flowing his. The surroundings are very utilitarian, both passengers look uncomfortable.
Seamus: There being no commercial liner available at this time, I took what I could find.
Closer 2-shot on Nicole and Seamus.
Nicole: We're not going to be boosting at 20 gravs the whole trip, are we?
Seamus: Thankfully, no ...
The two of them suddenly look relieved, as if a weight has been lifted from them.
Seamus: The Captain said this would only be for the first hour, to build up some speed, then ...
Seamus: Ah! Much better.
Captain Pinder appears in a hatchway near Nicole and Seamus. Pinder is slender, with a weathered face and a large, somewhat bulbous nose. Nicole is unstrapping herself from the couch.
Pinder: Ha! Even six gravs feels pretty good to ya after a heavy boost, eh?
Nicole is now standing next to her couch. Pinder is in the frame, looking at her appreciatively.
Seamus: Better, although I'll still have some difficulty getting around, in my condition.
Nicole: Guess I'll be doing food service for you.
Pinder busts out laughing.
Pinder: Ha-ha! You can bring him his food, but are ya gonna take it away when he's done with it?
Pinder: – And clean up for him?
Nicole is looking really grossed-out, but Seamus seeks to re-assure her.
Seamus: It's okay, Nicole. I didn't hire you to be my nurse, and I can still take care of some things myself.
