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
Murphy, Hugo and Theo are standing in front of a double-pressure door.
Theo: Think of it, my friends! As I speak with you here, I am also in contact with billions of Cush, directing their activities.
Hugo: What are you directing them to do?
Panel 2
Medium c/u on Theo. A light next to the pressure door is flashing.
Theo: Oh, a great many things … explore, gather resources, build more ships, assimilate new technologies ...
Theo: … by the way, did you know a hive-mind can't really invent anything? And I don't mean design a better can opener, I mean something really new, a conceptual leap!
Theo: All it can do is modify other species' concepts and processes. But it can be remarkably adaptable.
Panel 3
Another three-shot. The door behind them is starting to open.
Hugo: But what are your plans? To escape this galaxy?
Theo: Oh, at some point, certainly.
Theo: What I'm focusing on presently is annihilating the Brennir.
Panel 4
Theo has stepped across the threshold and is half-turned back towards a hesitant Murphy and Hugo, gesturing them to follow.
Theo: Before you judge me, consider that the Brennir are a vicious, savage people.
Theo: This galaxy will be better off without them.
Theo: Please do come along.
Panel 5
We can see that they are in a large bay, and dominating the space is the Causa Sui.
Theo: Here is your personal craft. From my scans I gather you've been tinkering with the Displacement Drive, trying to make it work.
Theo: A laudable project, which I would encourage.
Panel 6
Another three-shot of the trio. Hugo and Murphy are glancing nervously at each other.
Theo: In the meanwhile, I offer you this Icosaship as your sanctuary.
Theo: Beyond that, I hope you will consider joining me in my war with the Brennir.
Theo: And perhaps after that we can finally establish peace in this galaxy.
