Story & Art: Scott Bieser - Sci-Fi Adventure Monday & Thursday.
Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
Referral Contest Update [ Jun 17, 2021 ]
UPDATE: Art in progress
We could use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign. So, we're launching a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
At right is a "study" (in the art biz, a sort of practice run on the final drawing) of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Scott is still working on it while he's not making the strip, and we plan to reveal works in progress very soon. It will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate.
Get started now. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
The interview continues:
Falstaff: Concerning the business climate … how long do you think we can manage under the current rate of closures, before the city collapses?
Da Costa: 'Collapses?' You must be kidding.
Da Costa explains, an image of the original Sphere appears next to him:
Da Costa: When this city was founded, more than three centuries ago, there was just one sphere, and all of twenty thousand pioneers. I know because I was among them.
Da Costa: From that point, we grew.
Da Costa: We could do that again if we had to.
Medium 2-shot again.
Falstaff: So you're not worried about the consequences of this siege?
Da Costa: Of course I'm worried. I've personally lost 20 percent of my net worth, and I'll probably lose a lot more before this is over.
Falstaff and Da Costa. We're pulled back a bit to see the outside edges of the monitor again
Falstaff: Twenty percent?
Falstaff: What do you say to those who've lost their jobs?
Da Costa: See me after this is over and my partners and I will find a way to help them create their own jobs.
