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.

Panel 1
Seamus stands with Nicole and Ventura at a table with an elaborate spread of finger-food. Seamus serves himself some punch from the crystalline punch bowl.
Nicole: Too bad we had a late breakfast. I'm not really hungry.
Seamus: Nor am I, but with all the talking I'll be doing I need to keep my throat fresh.
Panel 2
Nicole notices Seamus picking up a few pieces of some sort of candy.
Nicole: Better be careful with the candy. You'll get fat again.
Seamus: Nonsense. These are for later.

Panel 3
The trio begins working their way through the crowd of people.
Nicole: I feel bad that we had to ditch Buford at the door.
Seamus: Oh, she's not alone. Many of these guests have valets, bodyguards, and so forth stashed in nearby anterooms.

Panel 4
Cut to an anteroom where we see Buford at a card table playing a poker-like game with four other bodyguards (one other Beltape and three Enforcer-types. She's triumphantly showing a winning hand.
Caption (Nicole): 'Even so, I hope she isn't feeling left out.'
Buford: Three Ceos, two nines. Looks like I win again.
