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
The Dryhaven, with Causa Sui still tucked in underneath, is at station near an asteroid roughly ten times its size. We can see a force-field bubble enclosing the asteroid as well as the ships. We can see several small flashes on the bubble. The local brown-dwarf star is large enough to show a good-sized disc, but is out-shined by its sister red-dwarf 100 gigameters distant.
Hugo (from Dryhaven):You weren't exaggerating about the 'chaotic' nature of this space.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Without our re-enforced shielding, we'd soon be cut to shreds by all these high-speed micro-liths.
The workshop aboard Dryhaven. Hugo is fussing over a gadget resting on a worktable as Shrack, Krasp, and Murphy look on.
Hugo: Krasp, I'm sorry, but this pento-matrix slicer is still not up to the specs I require.
Krasp: That was my third attempt, Doctor. It looks right to me, and I don't know what else I can do for it.
Closer two-shot of Hugo and Shrack.
Hugo: This is a waste of time. I have equipment aboard my ship that will serve.
Hugo: I must return to Causa Sui immediately.
Shrack: I'm afraid I can't allow that right now.
Another angle that show Krasp and Murphy in the background, looking on.
Hugo: 'Can't allow it'?
Hugo: I had been under the impression that we were guests here, not captives.
Shlack: Conditions here are too hazardous for you to space-walk back to your vessel.
Another exterior shot of the two vessels near the asteroid. A harvester craft from the Dryhaven is at work on the asteroid's surface, cutting into the megalith. The force-field bubble surrounds all, and we see several flashes across the barrier's surface.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Once we've completed our harvesting runs and return to the comet, it will be safe for you to disembark.
Hugo: But that will be several days from now! And this project has dependencies ...
Group shot of Shlack, Hugo, Krasp, Murphy. Shlack is laying down the law; Hugo and Murphy look unhappy, and Krasp looks uncomfortable.
Shlack: This discussion is over, Doctor Galvéz.
Shrack: I'm the master of this vessel and I aim to be fair and reasonable but my word is law here. Am I clear?
Hugo: As crystal … Captain.
