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
Nicole and Seamus, with their luggage at their feet, stand outside the door to Nicole's stateroom, looking into it. The stateroom is very small – more like a slot tall enough to stand in, with a bed on one side and a wash basin on the other.
Nicole: Are you kidding?
Nicole: The bathroom in my apartment is bigger than this.
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus, still in the corridor.
Seamus: I'm sorry about this, but I'd reserved a larger room for both of us previously.
Seamus: When we decided to go with separate rooms, these … smaller rooms were the only ones left.
Nichole steps into the room, her bag following. Seamus remains outside the door.
Nicole: I guess it'll have to do. For sleeping, anyway.
Seamus: You're welcome to spend the day cycle with me in my stateroom.
Nicole grins back at Seamus, who is looking back at her askance.
Nicole: That's okay. There are several lounges on board.
Nicole: I'll be in one of them most of the time I'm not sleeping.
Seamus is not looking happy.
Seamus: It would be better if you limited your drinking.
Seamus: I don't wish to be a Pelosi, but you are my assistant and I may have need of you from time to time.
Medium shot of Nicole, tapping a finger to her temple.
Nicole: Gotcha boss. I'll stay sober … well, mostly.
Nicole: And if you need me, just call me on our direct line.
In the hallway, Seamus begins walking away, his luggage following. Nicole sticks her head out her doorway after him.
Seamus: Please join me for dinner at 1900, in my stateroom, will you?
Nicole: Still playing hermit? Suit yourself.

Nicole: After what we've been through, I'm looking forward to a relaxing 4-week cruise.
