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
Hugo and Murphy are relaxing in post-coitus on their bed.
Hugo: So. Theo's quite mad, unfortunately.
Murphy: Agreed. Which is why we need to fire up the Displacement Drive and get out of here.
Hugo: Not yet.
Panel 2
Murphy shifts to her side to face Hugo.
Murphy: Not yet?
Hugo: The Cush are our best means of finding Eithne.
Hugo: Otherwise we're looking for a needle in a truly gargantuan haystack.
Panel 3
Murphy and Hugo
Murphy: What do you propose?
Hugo: We're still well within Community space.
Hugo: We can tell Theo we want to work with him, and take this Icosaship on a course where we'll likely intercept Community ships and stations.
Panel 4
Murphy sits up in the bed, not exactly happy to be hearing this.
Murphy: You want us to help assimilate Gluteans?
Hugo: Only such few as are absolutely necessary.
Hugo: Unless you think they'll tell us where Eithne is being held if we just ask them nicely.
Panel 5
Murphy has stood up, and is re-projecting her holographic clothing. Hugo is sitting up in the bed.
Murphy: I … I'm not sure how this squares with our ethics, Hugo.
Murphy: Granted, the Community is predatory, but is every individual member at fault?
Hugo: I don't think that's a real concern here.
Panel 6
Murphy turns to face Hugo, who is now standing and projecting holo-clothing.
Murphy: What? How can you mean that?
Hugo: Because I have pierced the veil, revealing 'the man behind the curtain.'
Murphy: Veil? Curtain? What man?
Hugo: Let me explain …
