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
Seamus, Vanessa and Nicole, at the table, eating and not talking. But Vanessa and Nicole are exchanging sideways glances.
Vanessa and Nicole rise from their seats. Seamus continues eating, pretending not to notice.
Vanessa: I need to go to the Ladie's Room.
Nicole: Me too.
Seamus continues eating.
The waiter is standing next to Seamus, proffering a menu.
Waiter: While your ladies are away talking about you, would you care to see a desert menu?
Seamus: Yes, thank you.
The ladies' room in the La Bocca restaurant. Vanessa and Nicole are at the mirror, primping.
Nicole: I was going to ask your impression of Seamus ...
Vanessa: Yes, little did you know he impressed me long ago.
Nicole looks at Vanessa with some trepidation.
Nicole: He impressed … did you two ever … do it?
Vanessa: Not that it's your business but, yes, we did.
Nicole looks disgusted. Vanessa decides to go for broke.
Nicole: Mother! Ewwww!
Vanessa: He wasn't the bloated giant 23 years ago that he is now.
Vanessa: Back then he was rather dashing, in an eccentric sort of way.
Vanessa smiles with satisfaction. Nicole looks like she just ate a bug.
Vanessa: In fact, his … rubinetto was quite impressive.
Nicole: Ow, gawd, I'm so sorry I asked.
