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
Hugo and Murphy continue down the corridor. Zombies walk by, still ignoring them.
Murphy: This is creepy as fuck.
Hugo: There doesn't seem to be any locus here. No control center.
Hugo: This doesn't make any sense.
They are standing near something that looks like an alcove within a great junction box, with a flashy-lighty panel. It has a recess in it large enough to insert a hand.
Muphy: Yeah. Why transmat us over here and then ignore us?
Hugo: Maybe I should risk interfacing with their network.
Murphy: Are you sure? It's probably advanced beyond the others'.
Hugo stands in the alcove, his hand inserted into the recess. His eyes are white.
Murphy: So, what are you seeing, Hugo?
Murphy: Can you get a schematic of the ship?
Murphy: Which way should we go?
Looking a bit down the corridor at Murphy as she notices the zombies standing on either side of the corridor, their backs against the walls, all pointing up the corridor. Hugo has disengaged from the alcove.
Hugo: That way.
Rear view of Hugo and Murphy walking along a corridor past pointing zombies. At the far end is a glowing fog, in which a dark human-sized form is barely visible. 'Present-Murphy' narrates from a cameo panel:
Present-Murphy: We walked on in silence for almost 5,000 seconds. Hugo seemed even more distracted than usual.
Past-Murphy: Well, looks like something different up ahead.
Hugo and Murphy in the foreground flank the full figure in the background emerging from the fog.
Murphy: Who -?
Hugo: That face -!
