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
External view of Spanish Wells approaching Venus, flying backwards against its deceleration. The planet is very large in the frame, about 40 thousand km distant.
Nicole (from ship): Unf! Couldn't Pinder spring for some electro-grav dampeners?
Seamus: I believe he said, 'dampeners are for sissies,' or something like that.
Panel 2
The ship is now about 12 thousand klicks from Venus – the planet is twice the size of the panel's height, but it is offset so we see the horizon arc and a bit of space to the right of it. In that section is Ishtar Station, a large space-station.
Captain Pinder (from ship): Attention all personnel: We are on final approach to Ishtar Station. Please remain strapped-in until we complete docking maneuvers.
Panel 3
Nicole and Seamus, and their luggage, make their way down a gangway. Seamus has his cane, and is struggling a bit.
Nicole: After 17 days of six gravs, the four gravs here make me feel light on my feet.
Seamus: {grunt} Not light enough for me, I'm afraid.
Panel 4
Nicole and Seamus emerge into a busy concourse.
Nicole: You should invent a personal electro-grav dampener for people, well, like yourself.
Seamus: First order of business after we're done with this project.
Panel 5
They walk by a large display informing us that 'this station is a joint project of:' and then the logos and names of Gensaxwal, Muc Ar Foulain, Omega-Tek, and HuoJiGong (Mars Robotics Corp). Nicole looks at it, Seamus ignores it.
Nicole: I was about to ask whose domain this is.



Panel 6
N & S are now on a moving walkway.
Nicole: So what's our agenda here?
Seamus: First, we check in to our hotel. Then, we take a shuttle to Staisiún Étaín.
Panel 7
They approach the entrance to Óstán O'Siodhachain .
Nicole: A hectic schedule, huh.
Seamus: I wanted to get business out of the way first ...

Panel 8
Cloase two-shot of Seamus and Nicole. Nicole is looking pleasantly surprised.
Seamus: I understand your Mother has been working at Pellucidar Station.
Seamus: There should be just enough time for a visit with her, if you like.
