off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]
How does a society without a formal government deal with crime and criminal conspiracies? In the far-future space-city known as Bubbleopolis, they do it with a mixture of wit, grit, and a culture based on rolling up one's sleeves and doing what must be done. Diana Martelli, a recent arrival, likes to call it compassionate individualism.
Big Head Press announces the release of the latest graphic novel in the QUANTUM VIBE series: Château Périlleux, in which young Diana is tasked with finding out who killed a supposedly un-killable android -- and uncovers a conspiracy which shakes the very foundations of the city and its culture.
Available now direct from Big Head Press.

OUR STORY THUS FAR (PART 1)
In the 566th year of the space age, at a place called L-5 City, orbiting 384 thousand kilometers from mother Terra...
There was this girl, Nicole Oresme. She was 22 years old and in most ways fairly typical for a youngster of her time and place. And in some ways, not so typical.
Needing employment, she took a job with this guy: Dr. Seamus O'Murchadha, the renowned 'mad scientist', inventor of electro-gravity and many of the other nifty technologies that make these times so exciting.
He needed an assistant for a highly secret research project that would take them on a tour of the solar system. He would not divulge the purpose of the project.
He also told her it involved making a hazardous dive under the sun's corona. She took some time to think things over before accepting the position. And so off they went to Mercury, and Nicole's first adventure.
On Mercury, they encountered this guy: Wayne Bobinardi, Vice President Tech Acquisition for GENSAXWAL, the Mercorp dominant in Western Terra. Bobinardi is as keen on learning what Seamus is up to, as Seamus is kee on on not letting Bobinardi find out.
Nicole's sun-dive was touch-and-go but successful, and as the first woman to perform the feat she became a system-wide celebrity.
Her celebrations were interrupted by an assassination attempt on her and Seamus... ... when persons unknown hacked the hotel computer and ordered their rooms to be 'vacuumed'.
