QUANTUM VIBE: ASSIMILATION on Sale Soon! [ Nov 1, 2017 ]

Cover art for

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

Panel 1
Seamus and Nicole riding the same elevator they were in shortly after they first arrived at Ishtar Station. They are both looking tired.
Caption: A few uneventful hours later, back at Ishtar Station:
Seamus: Now, for a good 8 hours' rest and we can prepare to meet your mother at Pellucidar.
Nicole: ...
Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Is there a problem?
Nicole: I'm not sure now that I should take you to meet Mother.

Panel 3
The two emerge from the lift into a busy concourse. Seamus is expressing a mix of surprise and mild grief. Nicole looks a bit grim.
Seamus: I beg your pardon?
Seamus: I promise to shower and put on a clean mu-mu.
Panel 4
Seamus and Nicole walk down a corridor.
Nicole: It's not your body odor – which is surprisingly inoffensive, given, well, given the circumstances.
Seamus: Well, that's a relief.
Panel 5
The two approach the entrance to their hotel, the Óstán O'Siodhachain .
Nicole: Maybe it's not your fault, but you attract danger, Seamus.
Nicole: And I don't want to expose my mother to that.

Panel 6
Seamus and Nicole make their way through the hotel lobby. Nicole is looking exasperated.
Seamus: Are you serious?
Nicole: Am I serious? Seamus, first someone tried to kill us on Mercury, and just a few hours ago we were nearly shanghaied by East Terrans, according to your speculation.
Panel 7
Seamus and Nicole walking down a hotel corridor, approaching their rooms.
Seamus: Nicole, believe me, your mother would not be endangered by meeting us.
Nicole: Huh.

Panel 8
At the door to Nicole's room, she's standing just inside the doorway, facing Seamus who is still in the corridor.
Seamus: Let's continue this discussion in the morning when we're both refreshed, eh?
Nicole: All right, Seamus. Good night.
