Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various 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.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.

Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.




SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.

For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Nicole starts to back into the side-corridor but the two men spot her.
Nicole: Feek!

Panel 2
Nicole tries to roll her Bubb quickly backward but can't quite move fast enough, as a Zing grazes the forward face of the Bubb, tearing a small gash across it. Nicole is terrified.
SFX: ZING
Nicole: AAAAA!!! Seamus, they shot me!

Panel 3
Nicole is cornered in the short side-space, one of the men rounds the corner and pauses to consider his options. His Zringer (looks like a large ring on his right-hand finger) is glowing. We see the rip in her Bubb has become a scar as the device heals itself.
Man 1: Whooo-ee!! Look what I found!

Panel 4
Nicole raises her right hand and points her own Zringer at the man. Three Zings emit therefrom and rip through Man 1's body like they were high-powered rifle shots
SFX: ZING ZING ZING

Panel 5
Close-up on Nicole, who is looking at her Zringer. The jewel on the front looks dark.
Nicole: Shuck! I'm out of my charge pack's range, and this Zringer only holds 3 shots.
Nicole: SEAMUS! I got one but the other's in the corridor, I'm in the utility section.

Panel 6
View from the corridor, we see the other man flattened against the wall, Zringer ready, creeping towards the corner around which Nicole can do little else but cringe. Which she does.
Nicole: SEAMUS! I got one but the other's in the corridor, and I'm in the utility section.

Panel 7A
Looking from Nicole's position, we see Man 2 suddenly whirl around the corner, Zringer presented, ready to fire.
No dialog

Panel 7B
Medium close-up on Nicole, cornered in her Bubb, glaring back towards the man about to kill her. She snarls.
Nicole (small, soft): fuck you

Panel 8A
Same angle shot as 7A but now Man 2 is getting blasted by several Zings from OP right.
SFX: ZING ZING ZING ZING
Panel 8B
Close-up on Nicole, fists clenched under her face, eyes wide and blurry, trembling like a leaf in a gale.
Seamus (filtered voice): Nicole?
