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
Krasp, Hugo, Shlack and Murphy, looking very nonchalant.
Hugo: You're back! What did you bring me?
Murphy: I thought that in addition to the pento-matrix slicer, you could use a hermeneutical quantizer and ...
Hugo: … the Varajiana Transducer! I'm glad you thought of it.
Hugo takes the cart and starts pushing it away. Murphy goes with him.
Hugo: With these in my lab I'll be able to fabricate the remaining components in almost no time.
Shlack: How much time is 'no time?'
Hugo: I'll have your new drive up and running in 20 kiloseconds, tops.
Cut to the Dryhaven bridge. Hugo and Murphy flank Shlack as he stands at his station.
Caption: Roughly 40 kiloseconds later:
Shlack: So, gentlemen, we are finally ready to test this Transwarp conduit drive.
Shlack: Assuming there's a conduit access location where Dr. Galvéz indicated.
Exterior view of the Dryhaven with Causa Sui transwarping through the conduit.
Shlack: Is this what the transwarp effect is supposed to look like?
Hugo: Ah, yes, it very much is.
Hugo: You will probably want to take the next exit point and get our bearings.
The navigator reports.
Navigator: We are … more than 25 light-years from our original point. Nearer the Soraxian border, closer to the Core.
Hugo: In 70 seconds. An effective velocity of 11.2 million times light-speed.
Exterior view. The Dryhaven is confronted by a much larger, ugly, dodecahedron ship.
Navigator (from Dryhaven): Captain!
Shlack: Oh, shit!
