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 - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas & Gus Mendes

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
Diana slides into the booth next to Juan, across from Alyss.
Caption: It was Roaz who brought me here from my shitty homeworld.
Caption: I know I should be grateful for that, and up to a point, I am.
Caption: But there's a couple of things about Roaz that bother me.
Panel 2
Looking from behind Diana towards Roaz, who is looking pleasant as she makes small talk.
Caption: For one thing, she's a 'Bot.
Caption: Yeah, I know that's a rude term here. The polite word is 'gynoid.'
Caption: Or in Roaz' case, one could get away with saying 'Tin Man.'
Panel 3
Looking past Roaz towards Juan and Diana. Diana is looking cool. Juan is hoping for a big payoff.
Caption: She was a biological human when I first met her, but she managed to get herself killed in a daring effort to 're-program' the Master Processor that rules Zytemonde.
Caption: But people here make digital recordings of their personality and memories, and can 'cheat' death by uploading those recordings into an artificial brain and body.
Panel 4
Closer shot on Diana from the same, angle. She is looking very skeptical.
Caption: This … construct … is legally considered to be a continuation of the living person.
Caption: I have my doubts … but that may be because on my homeworld, Bots are an oppressive ruling class.
Caption: Clearly these machines can't have souls … but then I can't prove I have one, either.
