New Guide For Newbies
This week we return to brand new strips of Quantum Vibe. Yay!!! We pick up where Seamus is in the middle of having a major metaphorical bowel movement, when he hears a helpful voice via his cortical implant.
Last week's series of strips, Our Story Thus Far, is now easily access-able through our new guide for readers.

A handy link is positioned to the right of the page navigation buttons on the Quantum Vibe web site.

Ed: Hi, friend, you look lost.
Ed: Let me help you find what you're looking for.
