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
Back at the hearing, Montoya addresses the arbiters.
Caption (Bok): The hearing resumes:
Montoya: Hayami Leigh was not merely an employee of Alyss Roaz. She betrayed Roaz at a critical moment, resulting in the destruction of Roaz' former biological body.
Montoya: But like most of us, Roaz had created a 'back-up' of her personality and memories and those were restored to the artificial body who sits with us now.
Panel 2
Looking back at Montoya, we see Roaz, Diana and company at their table. Diana is casting a sympathetic glance at Roaz, who is a bit downcast.
Montoya: While Roaz' personality was being restored, Hayami was found dead.
Montoya: Not only was her plancktronic brain destroyed, her back-up container came up missing.
Montoya: She could neither be restored nor assist in identifying her killers.
Panel 3
Focus now on Sergio Cooper, looking thoughrfully stoic. The others on their side are glancing side-eyed at him.
Montoya (OP): As her assurance agency, Smith & Holder investigated Hayami's murder, but after a few cycles could find no solid leads.
Montoya (OP): When such a renowned agency gave up the case, Roaz was left to ponder her situation. You don't have to be a genius to suspect that those responsible may have prompted Hayami's betrayal and were covering their tracks.
Panel 4
Montoya faces the arbiters again, who are looking slightly amused.
Montoya: This is why Roaz engaged the services of Juan Gómez and Diana Martelli, to find those responsible. Their contract is in the record.
Montoya: Not some secret experiments funded by de Castries, of which Roaz knew nothing.
Montoya: That particular theory has no legs, as the saying goes.
Montoya: Obviously I know all about having no legs.
