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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

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

Panel 1
Boney has raised a hand and is snapping his fingers, as one of his minions brings forth a portable chair.
Boney: Cantwell! A chair for our guest!
Boney: Rayche! Freshen up our drinks.
Boney: Have a seat, Bok. We got stuff to discuss.
Panel 2
Bok is seated close to Boney on his sofa, as one of the girls from the sofa is filling Bok's glass from a bottle.
Boney: Transportation is something we never seem to have enough of, isn't it?
Bok: My Dad said that's a deliberate policy, one way the Machines control us.
Boney: Yeah yeah, whatever. Let's not get into political talk. I'm a practical man.
Panel 3
Medium shot of Boney, making his pitch.
Boney: The rails are what they are. Fixed routes, fixed schedules, when they work right.
Boney: And if there ain't enough resources to keep 'em running right, we sure as feek ain't gonna see any new rails raised.
Boney: That leaves the road buggies.
Panel 4
Medium shot of Bok, listening, considering Boney's words.
Boney OP: Only the machines can build new roads and buggies, sure.
Boney: And there aren't really enough buggies available for everyone.
Bok: The machines give buggies to favored jakes as rewards for 'good citizenship.'
Boney: Of course. Even machines like to get their asses kissed.
Panel 5
Two-shot of Bok and Boney.
Boney: But anyway, most of those buggies sit around idle most of the time, at night and when their owners ain't using them, right?
Boney: What if we could make those buggies available to other users who pay us during those times?
Bok: Make them available HOW? They're tracked and monitored by the Machines.

Panel 6
Boney contemplates his glass, smirking. Bok regards his friend with a cocked eye.
Boney: I need your gadget guy to make something that can unlock the buggies. Leave the central computer to me.
Bok: Leave the central what's that you're drinking, anyway?
Boney: Only the finest wheetshine, my friend. As you are, or I haven't taught you proper.
