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!
The Transcript For This Page
Nicole, Buford and Ventura enter a large building under a sign reading (in both languages) "TUBE STATION"
Buford: Why don't we take our limo to Xin Rizhao?
Nicole: Because I had to send it back to the Po estate for Seamus to use.
Nicole: Besides, this should be interesting.
The trio stands in a short queue before a ticket kiosk.
Buford: Is t'at 'interesting' as in, 'oh, cool,' or as in, 'oh, crat'?
Nicole: Well, I _think_ it will be cool.
At the ticket kiosk, Nicole peers at the monitor listing fares, and puts some dime-sized coins into the receptacle..
Nicole: Hm. Three fares to Xin Rizhao, comes to 4 yinke.
Ventura: Do you need me to go with you? You could return me to the rental shop.
The trio walks away from the ticket counter, Nicole, holding a small plastic fob, blushes a bit as she answers Ventura.
Nicole: Well, Seamus paid for three days, so we should get his money's worth.
Nicole: And besides, we may have to stay overnight and ... I might have nightmares again.
