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.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Establishing shot: Hyperion, from space. We can just see Cissonius arcing in for a landing, looking tiny in the scale.
Caption: The Saturnine moon Hyperion.
Caption: Discovered in 109 B.S.A (1848 C.E.), his unique characteristics discovered by the Cassini probe 158 years later.
Caption: Hyperion is a gigantic, dusty, dirty ball of ice.

Panel 2
A closer-in shot of the moon featuring a cluster of its jagged-edged, deep craters. One crater has something of a plateau next to it, and near the edge of that crater we can see an artificial structure. The structure appears to have spider-like legs reaching out in all directions to anchor itself in the ice.
Caption: Bond-Lassel Station is owned and operated by Lewis & Canter JSC, based in L-5 City.
Caption: The station collects scientific data concerning both Hyperion and the outer reaches of Saturn's trans-Titan space. An associated orbital observatory studies distant Kuyper Belt objects.

Panel 3
Inside the ship-bay, the passengers of the Cissonius disembark onto extended causeway. We see some other ships berthed nearby.
Caption: Because of this station, Muc Ar Foulain, L-5 City's mercorp agency, claims Hyperion as protected under its laws.
Caption: The claim is disputed but at present no other System power has felt inclined to press the issue.

Panel 4
Three-shot of Murphy, Nicole and Seamus walking along the causeway. Something to the side has caught Nicole's eye and she is glancing questioningly at it.
Caption: Of course, political situations can sometimes change overnight.
