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.
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.
The Transcript For This Page
In the monorail terminal (we see an electronic sign saying, MONORAIL 14), Bok is casually leaning against a pillar, looking at his Screen. Zander is half-walking, half-running up to him. We see other people of various ages standing, leaning, sitting on benches, waiting for the monorail.
Zander: Hey, Bok.
Bok: Hey, Zander.
Zander: D'ja get ahold of your, uh, friend?
Bok: That I did.
As the two walk together, Bok surreptitiously hands Zander a small package.
Zander: You sure it's the right, uh, flavor churro?
Bok: I know churros well enough to tell one kind from the other.
Zander: I doubt that, but I guess I'll find out later when I, uh, taste it.
The two step aboard a monorail which has stopped at the platform. There are other people around, not paying attention.
Zander: Wish you'd introduce me to your friend. Would be more convenient.
Bok: You wouldn't like my friend. He's kind of an asshole.
Zander: Hey, you're kind of an asshole sometimes, and I like you.
