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!



 

The Transcript For This Page

Exterior shot of the Dejah Thoris, rocketing through space.
Caption: Aboard the Dejah Thoris, bound for Luna.
Nicole (from ship): This is zero magnification?
Seamus (from ship): I believe it is.
Panel 2
Another shot of space, focus is on two bright points close together, in the center of the field. We see Seamus' hand pointing at them.
Seamus: We're a third of the way there now.
Seamus: Terra and Luna can now be seen as two separate objects.
Panel 3
Establishing shot of Seamus and Nicole, seated at a small table. The wall beyond them is a wall-screen, showing a real-time view of space ahead of them.
Seamus: In a couple more days we'll be able to see them as discs rather than points of light.
Nicole: I've been thinking of going out to one of the lounges after dinner.
Panel 4
Looking past Nicole at Seamus, who brushes a lock of his hair away from his eye with a finger.
Seamus: Good. You need to learn how to deal with your situation, rather than ...
Seamus: Ffft. Stupid curls.
Nicole: If your hair bothers you why don't you cut it?
Panel 5
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus
Seamus: I need to find an anesthesiologist I can trust first.
Nicole: An anesthesiologist?
Panel 6
Two-shot of Seamus and Nicole, who's looking a bit disgusted.
Seamus: My botched rejuvenation has presented many odd problems, besides my giantism.
Seamus: For example, I can fart at will.
Panel 7
Medium close-up of Seamus, again brushing a lock out of his eye.
Seamus: But specific to your question, my scalp hair has, well, mutated.
Seamus: Each strand has a single, long nerve growing in the center.

Panel 8
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, who looks incredulous.
Nicole: You mean your hair hurts?
Seamus: Only when I try to cut it.
