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

Strip 219
Panel 1
An observation deck on the side of one of the central towers in Aldrinopolis. A tall, broad-shouldered man leans on the rail, gazing out at the city. We'll call him 'Rando,' because that's his name. He doesn't seem to react to the voice that calls from behind him, OP. We'll call the owner of that voice 'Bill,' at least for now.
Bill (OP): Sorry I'm late, got stuck in traffic.
Rando: Yeh, Ai can see three jammups frum heer, geez.
Panel 2
Bill walks up beside Rando, a half-meter away. Bill is also tall, but barrel-chested. He has a strong jawline but seems just on the verge of being jowly. His hair is light brown, his eyes are a bit too small, his nose is a bit bulbous at the tip.
Rando looks Mediterranean, not as dark as Nicole, but with thick, black hair and the kind of eyes women go for, and a closely-trimmed goatee.
Bill: Hope you can modulate your mouth to society standard, Greene.
Bill: Loonie-speak won't do for the upper-class targets we have this time.

Panel 3
Bill holds up a calf-skinned, gloved hand between himself and Rando, with index finger pointed upward. A rectangle containing images of Nicole and Seamus appears to balance on his fingertip. Rando looks at it closely.
Bill: A crazy old coot with a glandular problem who's also a science wiz is onto some kind of potentially huge breakthrough, and my friends want to know what he's up to.

Panel 4
Another angle two-shot on Bill and Rando. Rando smiles big.
Bill: I'll deal with the crazy old coot, you get the cute young assistant who's with him.
Rando: You're a gentleman and a scholar, Mr. Graves.
