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 of Causa Sui and the Dryhaven in a triple-star system, at station-keeping near a largish comet. The nearest star is a brown dwarf. A nebula fills the background star-field. Present-Murphy is in a cameo, narrating:
Murphy: While Eithne and Ralf were en-route to Campeche Rock, Hugo and I arrived with our Soraxian friends at the system they called, 'Back of Behind.'
Captain Shlack: It's a triple-star system including two red dwarves and one brown dwarf star.
On the bridge of the Soraxian vessel, Captain Shlack stands with Hugo and Murphy as the bridge crew tends their stations.
Shlack: The brown dwarf is a nova remnant, and there's a cloud of pulverized planetoids orbiting, full of metals and rare minerals practically laid bare for the taking.
Hugo: Then why aren't there mining colonies here?
Shlack: Back of Behind has several … problems.
Closer 3-shot of Shlack with Hugo and Murphy
Shlack: For one thing, the planetoid cloud is still fairly new, and chaotic. Hazardous to work in without really good shielding.
Shlack: For another, the nebula around us is full of negatively-charged gasses which interfere with subspace 'radio.'
Shlack: The Commies don't like to be out of touch with their network.
