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.

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Panel 3
Pandora explains:
Pandora: It's an old secure-comm software plug-in from before the Calamities, called 'FreeSpeechMe,' based on a protocol called 'Namecoin' for reasons I'm not clear about.
Pandora: Dr. O'Murchadha re-discovered it and updated it for our needs.

Panel 4
The girls share smiles.
Nicole: Pre-Calamies? 'Software plug-in?' Not even Seamus is that old.
Murphy: I imagine he found a document describing it in some ancient archive on Luna.
Pandora: The man is a walking wikipedia solaria.
