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 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
Seamus and Nicole are still at Baggage Portal 5, Seamus is dressing-down the halpless baggage clerk, as Nicole is pulling her own suitcase off the counter.
Seamus: Your response is unacceptable!
Seamus: You will look again and find my luggage, do you understand?
Nicole: Skewz me.

Panel 2
Clerk leaves hurriedly. Seamus fumes. Nicole is looking through her own suitcase (it has an automatic stand that extrudes to the floor). Other passengers are coming up behind them, wanting their baggage.
Seamus: Unbelievable! I've flown this service for more than a century with no problems, and now this!
Nicole: Hmmm.

Panel 3
The clerk returns. He looks nervous. Seamus looks like he's going to eat the little guy.
Clerk: Uh, we're running a trace on your bags now, sir, to see what happened to it.
Clerk: Would you mind having a seat in the lounge so I can help the other ...
Panel 4
Seamus practically roars at the clerk.
Seamus: NO I WILL NOT!
Seamus: I WILL REMAIN HERE UNTIL I HAVE MY BELONGINGS!

Panel 5
A pair of muscular-looking SecGuards (one beefy human, one android xtra large) suddenly appear flanking the clerk. Seamus is calmer but not intimidated.
Secguard 1: Waz ur problem?
Seamus: This transline is in violation of Lunar Articles Sec. 12 (8)(c) paragraph 11 and I may wish to file a formal complaint.

Panel 6
The Secguard puts a finger to his temple, and his eyes go unfocused as he consults his Plant. Seamus looks at him levelly.
Secguard: … ate… cee, right?
Seamus: Yes, with reference to the Trade Agreement with Muc Ar Foulain.

Panel 7
Medium shot of the group at the portal: The two secguards, the clerk, Seamus, Nicole, some people behind Nicole. The SecGuard now holds his palm to his ear. Nicole says something to Seamus. The people behind Nicole look impatient.
Secguard: rr, pleez stan by wyl Ai consult wid mai offis.
Secguard: [subvocalizations]
Nicole (to Seamus): At least nothing's missing from my bag.

Panel 8
Angle so we see past Seamus and Nicole down the line, which has gotten quite long. One of the people behind Nicole voices a complaint, and she responds.
Annoyed Passenger: Hai, wotz teh hang-up her?
Nicole: Pleez bear wid us, citizen. Iz a matter of nashunul security.
