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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Back on Huoxing: At the entrance to a building with a sign marked (in both languages) "Escrow And Exchange House", Seamus waits by the entrance, as Peng-Bo Shen approaches surrounded by a phalanx of muscular, business-attired men.
Peng-Bo: Sorry I'm late, Dr. Murchadha.
Seamus: That's quite a retinue you've brought with you, Mr. Peng-Bo.

Panel 2
Seamus and Shen stand face to face, with Shen's retinue forming a semi-circle around him, facing outwards.
Peng-Bo: Oh, this is just my security team.
Peng-Bo: They accompany me anywhere I go in public.
Seamus: I see.

Panel 3
Closer shot of Seamus and Shen. We can still see one or two of the guards.
Seamus: I suppose this is a wise precaution, as your adoring public may resent your designs to disarm them.
Seamus: But aren't you worried about the zringer I'm wearing?

Panel 4
Shen gestures for Seamus to enter the building with him.
Shen: The weapons ban I'm proposing isn't for people such as you and me.
Shen: That's just for the commoners.
