Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale! [ Oct 31, 2019 ]
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
Background switches to show the arbitrators: Andrews, Sandini, Feingold. Andrews looks completely laid back, maybe playing with a yo-yo. Sandini is all solemn. Feingold looks bored.
Bok (in cameo): De Castries and Roaz agreed for three of the most celebrated Arbiters in the city to render decisions: Harcourt Andrews, Wilson Sandini, and Jed Feingold.
Andrews: … so, we've reviewed the petitions and agreed to consolidate the various cases into Roaz et al vs de Castries et al.
Sandini: So mote it be.
Feingold: Let's get on with this.
Bok narrates from a cameo as de Castries' advogado, Abraham Miller, addresses the bench. Miller is a 'Tin Man,' an android with the memories and personality of a once-living human.
Bok: De Castries and company were represented by the highly-respected Advogado, Abraham Miller.
Miller: Alyss Roaz has unleashed an outrageous wave of violent assaults culminating in the vicious attack on de Castries' domain resulting in 27 casualties, with two requiring resurrections.
Miller: Also, an estimated 15.72 kilomoebits in property damage.
Miller continues. We can see Diana in the background, looking at him with an icy glare.
Miller: As a cover for her scheme, Roaz contracted with this young, inexperienced, so-called 'investigator,' to snoop around sowing discord and suspicion against a respectable beneficencia, Républicains Pour La Démocracie.
Miller: But don't let that sweet young face fool you … this woman is a vicious killer.
Miller jabs a finger for emphasis at Alyss, sitting at the defendants' table with Sergio and Diana and Montoya. Alyss mutters something.
Miller: But Senhora Martelli's crimes pail in comparison with her employers'. This illustrious founder of our city has become corrupted with power!
Miller: She thinks she can just trample over anyone who gets in her way!
Alyss (soto voce): Can't help it I got big feet.
