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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
More of a frontal angle on Zander, talking happily. Lanky older teenager sprawls in his chair.

Panel 2

Caption: So, I used code-words and other round-abouts to get across what I needed Zander to do for me.
Panel 3
Looking past Diana at a holo-image on Zander in front of her. He's looking cocky.
Caption: In the first few cycles after we arrived, I could ask Zander to do most anything that had to do with technical stuff and he'd happily do it for me.
Caption: But now he's caught on to how things work in Bubbleopolis, and the value of his skill.
Panel 4
Otto comes up behind Diana as she is still engaged with Zander, startling her.
Caption: We were negotiating his fee, when ...
Otto: Senhora Martelli! They've found your boss, Sr. Gómez!
