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
Close-up of Diana in severe anguish, her face surrounded by a black fog of despair.

Caption: It hit me like a steamroller I didn't see coming.
Caption: They tortured him. For information. About the Roaz case.
Caption: They were looking for me, too. They didn't find me.
Caption: They had to have asked him where I would go. But he didn't give me up.
Caption: No matter what they did to him, he didn't give me up.
Panel 2
Pull back, now we see that Diana is curled up in the lap of Wook, who is stroking her hair in an attempt to comfort her as she would a child. Diana is snapping out of her funk and realizing where she is.

Wook: … he will be healed … it's okay … he will be with you again ...
Diana: Buuh …
Panel 3
Diana quickly gets to her feet, looking embarrassed. Wook looks a bit disappointed. Areum, looking on, is deadpan as usual.
Diana: Sorry … sorry! I … Juan is a good friend, and … this ...
Areum: Unfortunately you will not be able to speak with him for another 16 days.
Areum: Perhaps we should return to the flyer now.
Panel 4
Diana bends close over Juan's sarcophagus. In the background are the bodyguards, and the snake.
Diana: So … Senhor Montoya, you said I have full control of his business and property?
Montoya: Yes, indeed. He must hold you in high regard, to be so trusting.
Areum: Take care that you do not precipitate another emotional collapse, Montoya.
