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 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.

Seamus (thoughtsend): When we learn more, follow my instructions.

Panel 3
Nicole cocks an eye at Seamus, who smiles back at her wryly.
Nicole (thoughtsend): I can't believe you haven't hacked into the ship's comms to get the inside scoop.

Strider: Aye, sir.

Panel 5
Bartoli and Santos.
Bartoli: What do you think will happen?
Santos: Best scenario is they'll strip us of everything of value, then send us on our way.
Bartoli: Worst scenario?
Panel 6
Santos looks at Bartoli through narrowed eyes.
Santos: Our android crew get sold into slavery on Europa ...
