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
Sharkisian and the PA looking at the control monitor, as the PA points to it.
PA: See here? And here?
PA: And look at those telemeres.
PA: How old is this O Murchadha, really?
Panel 2
Two-shot of Sharkisian and the PA, Sharkisian assumes an authoritative pose.
Sharkisian: You know our code of ethics demands that we respect our patients' right to privacy.
PA: How can we give the best treatment to our patients if we don't have accurate information?
Panel 3
Sharkisian rolls her eyes.
Sharkisian: {sigh} Very well, let's assume the patient is really 500 years old, more or less.
Sharkisian: Set up the Bawerk-Simpson protocol, and administer as we would a 10-day follow-up treatment.
Panel 4
The PA, at her console. Sharkisian has turned to walk away and waves off her question.
PA: Yes, doctor.
PA: Oh, there's a note here that if the treatment is to run longer than 5 days, to inform the patient's, um, adjutant. Shall I --?
Sharkisian: I'll take care of that.

Panel 5
Cut to: Rando and Nicole at their table in Club Leykis. As Philbert continues his set, the phone in Nicole's head is ringing.
Philbert (OP): I know you think you heard me, but what you heard was not my heart ...
SFX: [musical notes]
Nicole: Hang on, my Tel is ringing.
Panel 6
Nicole is holding both hands over her ears, having difficulty 'hearing' her Tel through Philbert's din.
Philbert (OP): Heart and head are out of whack, at least until I can get you back ...
SFX: [Musical notes]
Nicole: What? Who? I can't hear you. I'm at a concert. Sort of.
Panel 7
Nicole has gotten up and is walking away from the table, leaving a discomfited Rando.
Philbert: Back back, won't you come back, won't you come back my love ...
SFX: [musical notes]
Nicole: Hang on a minute, I need to find a quieter place.

Panel 8
Nicole stands in a corner in the club's lobby.
Nicole: Okay, that's better.
Nicole: No, no bother, I was just getting my brain sand-papered.
