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
Now, Alyss stands before the Arbs. Bok narrates from a cameo.

Bok: Complainants and defendants can decline to testify personally, but when Alyss Roaz was called, she stepped right up.
Alyss: I am Alyss Roaz, a.k.a. Nicole Oresme, inventor of the Murphy Displacer Engine, the Oresme Shield, and co-founder of this city. I wear this artificial body after my original was destroyed on the moon called Zytemonde.
Arb Andrews: Yes, Senhora Roaz, we know all that.
Panel 2
Looking past Alyss at the Arbs.
Arb Sandini: The written and oral testimony explains how you connected the name 'Château Périllieu' to the deCastries building, and how you reasoned that Senhora Martelli was being held there.
Arb Sandini: But why the armed assault? We have procedures for dealing with situations like this peacefully – procedures which you, yourself have advocated.
Alyss: The assault was extraordinary, but this was an extraordinary situation.
Panel 3
Alyss in the foreground, we can see Miller and de Castries seated behind her.
Alyss: At that time we were no longer contracted with Smith & Holder Assurance, as one of their agents had assaulted Senhora Martelli, a researcher I'd hired to investigate Hayami Leigh's murder. I regarded her safety as my own responsibility.
Alyss: Considering that Martelli's partner had been kidnapped and beaten almost to death, and a previous investigator of Hayami's murder had been driven into hiding ...
Panel 4
Similar shot, now Miller is leaping to his feet and de Castries is red-faced.
Alyss: … I reasoned that Diana was in immediate peril. And when I confronted de Castries, he refused to even acknowledge holding her.
Miller: That's a LIE! My client will not tolerate this calumny!
Alyss: If your client had been more honest, I would not have had to blast holes in his building.
