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
Wook, Diana, and Alyss at the hopper landing. Diana looks dubiously at Alyss as she waves a hand dismissively.
Diana: That sounds bad. Really bad.
Alyss: Or, it could be nothing! A false alarm!
Diana: But, I mean, our entire civilization?

Panel 2
Cut to an imagined scene where a man is sitting on a toilet. A bomb is popping into position right in front of him. Alyss explains from a cameo inset.
Alyss: Discontinuous displacement technology not only allows us to travel across the universe ...
Alyss: … but also down the street, or next door, into anyone's private space.
Panel 3
Another scene, somewhat diagrammatic. We can see a section of a building with a visible force-field around it, and that same bomb is bouncing off the outer surface. Alyss again explains from an inset.
Alyss: Almost immediately after Murphy and I developed the Displacement Drive, I went to work on a shield that would protect your bathroom, your flat, your city, or your planet from malicious entry.
Alyss: Just like cyber-security, shield-tech requires continual refinement and updating.
Panel 4
Cut back to the hallway at the hopper landing: Wook, Diana and Alyss.
Diana: You explained all that when I arrived here, but ...
Alyss: But think! What happens if someone finds a flaw in the shield that we can't counter?
Diana: Then we'll either need to spend less time on the toilet, or a lot more.
