Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 On Sales Now! [ Oct 17, 2016 ]

Quantum Vibe: Venus 23, by Scott Bieser with Lea Jean Badelles - front cover

Exciting news boys and girls, the 310 strips of Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 have been collected into a fourth Quantum Vibe volume from Big Head Press and is on sale now from various online retailers.

Venus 23 is the story of life on a small backwater planet, 500 years after the invention of the Murphy Drive. "Zytemonde" is a well managed, orderly, and predictable world where all needs are provided for by powerful android rulers. But life is hardly paradise when managing resources also includes controlling every aspect of everyone's life. And despite best efforts by their android rulers, a slow decay of civil society is beginning to show; with growing black markets, supply shortages, and power outages becoming more common.

Yet, while the rot slowly breaks their world down, an unexpected question begins to be seen, asked on posters littered about the city and spray painted on walls: "Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?" Learn the answer to this question along with young Bolivar Eustace Clark ("Bok") and his friends, as they struggle to survive on a world designed to end all struggle.

Order your copy today. Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 is available in print as well as digital form. Go to the Big Head Press store page to find out more!

Scott @ Oni-Con XIII [ Sep 10, 2016 ]

Oni-Con XIII October - 28th-30th, 2016 - Galveston , Tx - Annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo

Hey kids! As the cold weather creeps in this fall, what better way to make summer last a little longer than to head down to the Texas island of Galveston, October 28 - 30, and enjoy margaritas on the beach while getting to meet (and get an autograph from) your favorite sci-fi comic artist and creator of the slightly mad Quantum Vibe webcomic, Scott Bieser, at Galveston's annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo: Oni-Con XIII. Hosted at the Galveston Island Convention Center you're a short walk from the beach. You're margarita won't have time to start melting before you begin imbibing that last little taste of summer.


The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In the encounter room at Dalliances, Seamus and Nicole continue their ultra-private conference.
Nicole: I hope you brought us in here for more than a history lesson, Seamus.
Seamus: Quite so. I was merely establishing the context for my purpose.
Panel 2
Medium shot on Seamus.
Seamus: It is my theory that humans flourish best when they have frontiers to explore and conquer.
Seamus: Keep us bottled up within boundaries long enough and our culture begins to rot and erode, and people become either ennervated or self-destructive.
Panel 3
Medium close-up on Nicole, looking dubious.
Nicole: I – I suppose so, but we still have plenty of unexplored places in the Solar System.
Nicole: Don't we?
Panel 4
Seamus, looking ominous.
Seamus: We have a few such places on the inhospitable fringes, and your mother's Venusian terraforming project may well give us one more interesting place to build upon.
Seamus: But the rot has already set in.
Panel 5
Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Luna was once much like L-5 City is now, but, well, you'll see when we get there.
Nicole: Ok, so granted we need new frontiers, and the stars are probably out of our reach. What else is there?
Panel 6
Now Seamus smiles one of his enigmatic smiles.
Seamus: While we've been looking for new worlds across the canyons of intersteallar space, we have overlooked countless new worlds almost literally right around the corner.
Seamus: In alternate quantum universes.
Panel 7
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, Nicole rolls her eyes.
Nicole: Alternate universes? Oh, come on.
Nicole: David Deutsch proved way back in the First Century that we could never even detect them, much less cross the dimensional barrier.

Panel 8
Medium close-up on Seamus, looking determined.
Seamus: David Deutsch was brilliant. And, he was wrong.
