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: Assimulation - By Scott Bieser w/Lea Jean Badellas

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 2416

Panel 1
New scene: In the Pillars’ conference room: Alyss, Jorge, Enrique, Kofi, and Hugo (who stands in the background)

Caption: Speaking of the Pillars:

Kofi: So where is de Cleyre?

Enrique: She may not be able to attend.

Panel 2
Cut to show the de Cleyre mansion being attacked by a squadron of Invaders

Enrique (inset): Her home is under continued assault and she doesn’t want to leave it, even though the defenses are mostly automated.

Jorge: Well, she’s the only one of us who never experienced a war.

Panel 3
Back to the four remaining Pillars. Kofi jerks a thumb towards Hugo.

Alyss: We’ll have to proceed in her absence.

Jorge: We should re-think the traditional rule for in-person meetings.

Kofi: What about HIM?

Panel 4
Alyss, Kofi, Hugo et al. Hugo is doing his silly grin and hand-wave.

Alyss: With Albert gone and Kāng Min-Chèng in hospital, Hugo is the best military strategist we have.

Kofi: If you say so, Alyss.

Panel 5
Alyss, Kofi, Hugo, Jorge, Enrique, Hugo

Alyss: Don’t disappoint me, Hugo.

Hugo: Well for one thing, I brought a new, more powerful capital ship in our fleet. I named her ‘Polyphemus.’

Alyss: Cool name. By the way, where is Murphy?

Panel 6
Cut to Polyphemus zapping Invader vessels which are attacking the SchildHaus.

Hugo: Oh, aboard Polyphemus, amusing herself by defending your Schildhaus from the invaders.
