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
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole, and Vanessa Oresme, having met on the Pellucidar Station walkway. Nicole looks scandalized, but Seamus and Vanessa are smiling.
Nicole: MOTHER! I can't believe you called my boss a walrus!
Vanessa: Oh, we've said worse things about each other, haven't we, Seamus?
Vanessa has stepped forward to take Seamus' extended hand in greeting. Now Nicole looks confused.
Seamus: Regrettably, we have, and yet we're still friends if I'm not mistaken.
Vanessa: Not on that point.
Vanessa: So, what the hell happened to you?
The three begin moving along the walkway together. Vanessa between Seamus and Nicole. Vanessa and Seamus banter like old friends, Nicole is just getting over her surprise.
Seamus: My last rejuvenation went awry, and my current project has not allowed me time to fix it.
Vanessa: You always did put your work before everything.
Nicole: You – do you know each other?
Three-shot of Seamus, Vanessa, Nicole.
Seamus: Oh, yes, for quite some time. But we haven't seen each other in years.
Seamus: In fact, the last time was 23 years ago, when you called me to consult on your osmotic cloning project.
Three shot from reverse angle, putting Nicole on the left and Seamus on the right.
Nicole: Your osmotic cloning project – you mean, the project that produced me?
Vanessa: Yes, dear, that project.
Swing around again to show the trio from the front. Now Vanessa is looking a bit distressed.
Seamus: And I was a bit more than a consultant.
Nicole: What do you mean?
The group pauses at the entrance to a restaurant named, 'La Bocca.'
Vanessa: Ah, here we are! I made reservations in advance.
Vanessa: I hope you still like novo-Italiano quisine, Seamus.
The three are inside the restaurant, at the hostess station. The hostess is ready for them.
Seamus: I think it's past time you told her.
Vanessa: I will, but I want a glass of wine first.
Nicole: Tell me what?
