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

Panel 1
Back in the L-5 City, Nicole enters an establishment identified by a sign, 'Alizadeh Interfacing.'
Caption: In the Arch, L-5 City.
Panel 2
Nicole stands before a receptionist desk, behind which is seated another young-looking woman of apparent Iranian extraction. Nicole is handing the woman a card.
Nicole: I'm Nicole Oresme, here for my 13:00 appointment. This is my referral.
Panel 3
Medium close-up of the receptionist looking at the card, eyes widening.
Receptionist: Peyman!
Panel 4
A rather large and not-too-bright-looking Persian man appears instantly next to the Receptionist, somewhat startling Nicole.
Receptionist: Escort this honored client to the preparation room at once.
Panel 5
The preparation room. Peyman remains by the door as Nicole enters. Also in the room are Farzad Alizadeh, a middle-aged Persian man, and a young, bright-looking male assistant, Yousef. Front and center is something that looks like a dentist's chair.
Farzad: Welcome, Ms. Oresme. I am Dr. Farzad Alizadeh and this is my assistant, Yousef.
Farzad: Please have a seat and we'll get started right away.
Panel 6
Three-shot of Farzad, Yousef and Nicole in the chair, looking slightly uncomfortable.
Farzad: You are to be receiving the M-6460 Series Cortical Processor Implant, the very latest, yes?
Farzad: Yousef, begin the anesthetic procedure.

Panel 7
Same shot. Youself is holding up a small facial breathing mask, but is interrupted by Nicole.
Nicole: Ah, no offense intended, but I'd feel more comfortable with a female assistant, please?
Farzad: Of course.

Panel 8
Suddenly, in place of Youself is a handsome young Persian woman. Nicole looks impressed.
Farzad: This is Niki.
Nicole: Now, that's customer service.
Farzad: Your employer Dr. Murtagh always demands the best.
