Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 On Sales Now! [ Oct 17, 2016 ]
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 ]
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
Rando Greene is sitting at a table at a sidewalk cafe. We can see a sign 'Cafe de Quark' nearby. Rando is reading something on a pop-up holoscreen.
Medium shot of Rando, from the POV of someone standing on the other side of his table. He's looking up at his interlocutor.
Voice: Mr. Greene, please pardon the intrusion ...
Looking over Rando's shoulder at the interlocutor. It's a tall, tanned woman with flowing blonde hair, and she is dressed to kill.
Woman: ... but I'm in need of a publicist and my friend referred me to you.
Rando: Ah ... please have a seat, Ms -?
The woman is now seated across the small table from Rando.
Woman: Paula Steele. I'm an actress, and I sing a little. I was referred by Obie Carlson, my manager.
Rando: Oh yeah, Obie. Why didn't he call to set up an appointment?
Full two-shot of Rando and Steele. We can see her playing footsie with him under the table.
Steele: He's, um, busy with some kind of legal issue. And I thought it best to meet you in person.
Steele: To find out if you're as ... good as Obie says you are.
Looking over Steele's shoulder at Rando. He's looking interested.
Rando: Oh, Obie has no idea how good I am.
Rando: So, tell me a little about your, um, professional background.
Close-shot under the table, in Steele's lap. She's got a device about the size and shape of a thumb drive and is pointing it towards Rando.
Steele: Well, I studied at the Mulberry Academy, and have had speaking roles in a dozen A-Trade shows, including three musicals.
Steele: I'd like to show you my portfolio. Can we go to your office?
Steele and Greene arise from the table, Rando dabs a napkin at his mouth, having finished his breakfast. Steele is all smiles.
Rando: Sure, it's not far. But I hope you don't mind that it's a home-office.
Rando: I like to keep my overhead low.
Steele: I don't mind at all.
