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 ]
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
Dr. Sharkisian stands behind her furry assistant, who is working at the rejuv-vat control console.
Assistant: Re-quickening sequence now complete, Doctor.
Sharkisian: Okay, let's see what we've got.
Shot of Seamus' rejuv vat, Seamus is sitting up, so covered in goo that we can hardly recognize him. Dr. Sharkisian stands by, holding a Screen – the scene looks a lot like the one where Nicole rose from her medi-vat.
Sharkisian: Good afternoon, Dr. O'Murchadha. Can you hear me?
Angle shot so that we see Seamus' goo-covered head and shoulders in foreground right, Dr. Sharkisian in middle ground left.
Sharkisian: Your vital signs are all looking good.
Sharkisian: Let's get you cleaned up and then I need to fill you in on what happened.
Seamus (croaking): What … happened?
Seamus starts walking through a Cleen Brane – we just barely see his outlines pressing into the screen, his nose and one arm has made it all the way through, but we can already tell he's no longer walrus-shaped. Sharkisian walks around the Brane, still holding her Screen.
Sharkisian: You had some … very rude visitors the second day of your treatment.
Sharkisian: If you'd warned me about your security situation I could have been better prepared.
Sharkisian hands a robe to Seamus – all we see of him is a silhouetted shoulder and arm
Sharkisian: They tried to pull you out of your vat, which probably would have killed you.
Sharkisian: We stopped them, but the interruption forced us into a more extensive treament regimen.
Seamus: How long?
Sharkisian and Seamus – we see Seamus from behind, donning his robe. His hair is now white and flowing, rather than brown and curly.
Sharkisian: It's been 10 days, O'Murchadha
Seamus: TEN DAYS! Nicole must be beside herself. I should call her.
Medium shot of Sharkisian, holding her hand out towards Seamus.
Sharkisian: Yes, well, before we go into that, let me introduce you to someone.
Sharkisian: Let's step over here.
Seamus stands before a full-length mirror. This is the reveal of the new Seamus. Still very tall, but no longer grossly obese, with long, flowing white hair and and more angular facial features.
Seamus: By the gods! I daresay I've lost more than 50 kilos.
Sharkisian: One hundred seventeen. Hope you don't mind.
