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 Now On KIndle & DriveThru [ Nov 2, 2020 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!

QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks 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. And speaking of, 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.

As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

Transcript For Strip 2161

Panel 1
Otto is in a room with two patient beds. He's refilling a cabinet with fresh linens. There's an upset patient in one of the beds, Cesar, yelling at the wall across from him. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown). His roommate, Ren, is looking simply grumpy. Ren has some tubes coming out of him but he seems less encumbered.
Cesar: Damn lyin' piece of hog snot!! You should be taken out back and shot!
Ren: {sigh}
Otto: What's wrong, Senhor ...Vásquez?
Panel 2
Angle view so we see Cesar pointing at the 3D Viewtank mounted on the wall across from him. It's showing Jerome Falstaff delivering another report.
Falstaff (electronic): … talks keep hitting one snag after another, while ...
Cesar: That mendacious nit-wit! He's tryin' t' tear the city apart!
Otto: Oh, yeah, Falstaff.
Panel 3
Otto has come over next to Cesar's bed, and is adjusting his pillows. Here we can see that Cesar has a heart-lung machine installed (waiting for new heart and lungs to be grown).
Cesar: You don't believe his garbage, do you?
Otto: Not at all. But Senhor Vásquez, maybe you should avoid his newstreams.
Otto: Your Cardi-Pul machine has a difficult time when you're stressed.
Panel 4
New angle to include Ren in the frame. Now Cesar and Ren are bitching at each other, and Otto is looking nervous.
Ren: That old coot is not happy unless he's angry about something.
Cesar: 'Old coot?' I'm 53 years younger than you, ya bag'o'bones!
Otto: How about I put on a classic sit-com for you guys?
