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
Another angle on Carmine and Diana.
Carmine: Well, it does seem likely the two murders were related.
Carmine: As to the motivation? Hayami only cared about two things. One was her job.
Carmine: The other was, well, a sort of cock-eyed idealism.
Diana: How do you mean?
Panel 2
Carmine and Diana contd.
Carmine: She wasn't comfortable with the … looseness of the city's legal arrangements.
Carmine: She wanted more well-defined and specific boundaries to lawful behavior, than our poly-centric system affords.
Carmine: Did you know we were both former members of Républicains Pour La Démocratie?

Panel 3
Carmine and Diana contd.
Diana: Yes, I know a little about that group, read some of their literature.
Carmine: What do you think of them?
Diana: I think establishing a democratic republic sounds good until you review the histories of democratic republics.
Panel 4
Carmine laughs, claps Diana on the shoulder.
Carmine: Ha-ha! You're so right! That's why I quit RPLA, and I thought that's why she quit, too.
Diana: But, now you think otherwise?
Carmine: I don't think she actually quit.
Panel 4B (inset)
Cameo of Diana in inset, looking intrigued.
Diana: Are you serious?
