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 is sitting on a stool in front of something that looks like it should be a telecom station, with a console and large viewscreen. But she's sitting facing away (towards us) in a classic lotus position, eyes closed. A psychedelic graphic on the viewscreen frames her head and shoulders.
Caption: Gyeon-hoon had cautioned me about communications concerning hacking.
Caption: At Roaz's house I was able to establish a super-duper-secure line to Zander, and feed him some names to look for:
Caption: Older, Belbenoit, and 'Château Périlleux.'

Panel 2
Diana and Zander are together in a 'cyberspace' frame similar to their previous contact. Diana is still 'sitting' in a more relaxed pose. Zander is reclined.
Diana: Also, any employee of Smith & Holder who had been connected to RPLD.
Zander: Wow. You want me to hack into one of the biggest security agencies in the City?
Zander: I will have to be really careful. This will take time.
Panel 3b
Another view of Zander and Diana.
Diana: Time is something we don't have a lot of.
Zander: Besides, would they even have that sort of information?
Diana: Like you said, they're a security agency. They'd damn well better vet their employees thoroughly, regarding associations.
Panel 4
In realspace, we can see Zander reclining in his workstation chair, eyes closed. Looking a bit irked. In the background we can see someone silhouetted at another work station.
Zander (thoughtsend): I suppose so. I wonder how much crap I'll need to sort through.
Diana (thoughtsend): Background checks on people who can count their years in triple digits, can go deep.
