The Making of Quantum Vibe

This week, before we take a short 2 week hiatus, Scott is going to treat Quantum Vibe fans to a look behind the scenes, at it were, of the making of Quantum Vibe. Each day this week, readers will be given a guided tour through Scott's process for creating the daily strip we've all come to love.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
The trio approach a section in the wall where doors have slid open to reveal a row of five high-backed seats, facing to the right.
Buford: So how does t'is tube t'ing work?
Nicole: A combination of magnetics and pneumatics. We board this capsule, and air gets pumped out of the section of tube in front of us ...

Panel 2
The trio strap themselves into the rear three of the five seats. It's a tight fit for Buford.
Nicole: ... while magnetic accelerators move us forward at high-grav.
Nicole: Most of the tube is vacuum, so there's little friction along the mag-lev track. We coast most of the way to the other end.

Panel 3
The girls, seated, brace for departure.
Buford: Oh, t'ey haf somet'ing like t'at between t'e domed cities on Luna.
Buford: I never rode on 'em, t'ough.
Buford: How fast do t'ey accelerate?

Panel 4
As the capsule leaps forward, the high-acceleration pushes the girls back into their seats.
Nicole: Oh, nudding doo exdweme.
