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
Carmen gets to her feet, while Diana looks up at her quizzically

Carmen: But we shouldn't talk out here. It's too exposed.
Diana: But, this is the place you suggested we meet.
Panel 2
Carmen leads Diana (with Wook in tow) away from the bench and towards the shops.
Carmen: Oh, we don't need to go far.
Carmen: We can just be a couple of friends going shopping together.
Diana: I guess that will be ok.
Panel 3
Diana, Wook, and Carmen in a gift shop, pretending to examine the wares.
Carmen: Try to look as though you're interested in the merchandise.
Diana: I've often wondered about shops like this ...
Diana: In a city where all of this stuff can just be ordered, fabbed and shipped on-line, why bother with storefronts?
Panel 4
Diana, Wook, and Carmen continue browsing.
Carmen: You miss the point of shopping.
Carmen: We evolved from hunter-gatherers. It's in our nature to poke around in physical places looking for goodies.
Diana: If I find a mastodon tusk in here I'll let you know.
