QUANTUM VIBE: ASSIMILATION on Sale Soon! [ Nov 1, 2017 ]

Cover art for

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

Panel 1
The Guard stands with Nicole just inside the door to a holding cell. The cell is 4x3x3, but we just see the end of it with the exit door and a couple of the other prisoners flanking it in this frame.
Guard: Dis iz ur new cellmaet, Nicole. Tell her da rulez.
Panel 2
A diminutive but tough-looking Korean girl, flanked by two Samoan flunkies, confronts Nicole. Nicole looks at her blankly.
Korean girl: My name is Mac Park. The rules are that you do what I say and don't shuck with me, got it, Elf?
Nicole: Uh ... got it.
Panel 3
Mac points toward the far end of the room.
Mac: Meals are in the common area, at 08:00, 13:00, and 19:00. They'll be opening for breakfast soon.
Mac: Your bunk is down at the end ...
Panel 4
View down the length of the cell. Two sets of bunk-beds alongside each wall, a sink and toilet in the center of the far wall. On the far right side, a Beltape lies in the upper bunk. The others in the cell stand well away from her
Mac: Under the Beltape.
Panel 5
Nicole approaches the bunk-beds designated to her. She eyes the Beltape warily, but the Beltape appears to be asleep (she's on her side with her back to us).
Mac (OP): Don't shuck with the Beltape neither.
Panel 6
Nicole sits on her bunk, pondering her situation.
SFX: BRRRIIINGGG
Mac (OP): That's the breakfast bell, get a move on, Elf!
Panel 7
Nicole is starting to get up but the Beltape rolls out of her bunk at the same time and they collide.
Nicole: Waugh!

Panel 8
Nicole and the Beltape both laying prone on the floor, the Beltape laying cross-ways on top. The Beltape looks confused. Nicole smiles nervously.
Nicole: Ah -- ha-ha -- sorry!
Nicole: I should've looked where you were going.
