Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 On Sales Now!

Quantum Vibe: Venus 23, by Scott Bieser with Lea Jean Badelles - front cover

Exciting news boys and girls, the 310 strips of Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 have been collected into a fourth Quantum Vibe volume from Big Head Press and is on sale now from various online retailers.

Venus 23 is the story of life on a small backwater planet, 500 years after the invention of the Murphy Drive. "Zytemonde" is a well managed, orderly, and predictable world where all needs are provided for by powerful android rulers. But life is hardly paradise when managing resources also includes controlling every aspect of everyone's life. And despite best efforts by their android rulers, a slow decay of civil society is beginning to show; with growing black markets, supply shortages, and power outages becoming more common.

Yet, while the rot slowly breaks their world down, an unexpected question begins to be seen, asked on posters littered about the city and spray painted on walls: "Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?" Learn the answer to this question along with young Bolivar Eustace Clark ("Bok") and his friends, as they struggle to survive on a world designed to end all struggle.

Order your copy today. Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 is available in print as well as digital form. Go to the Big Head Press store page to find out more!

Scott @ Oni-Con XIII

Oni-Con XIII October - 28th-30th, 2016 - Galveston , Tx - Annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo

Hey kids! As the cold weather creeps in this fall, what better way to make summer last a little longer than to head down to the Texas island of Galveston, October 28 - 30, and enjoy margaritas on the beach while getting to meet (and get an autograph from) your favorite sci-fi comic artist and creator of the slightly mad Quantum Vibe webcomic, Scott Bieser, at Galveston's annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo: Oni-Con XIII. Hosted at the Galveston Island Convention Center you're a short walk from the beach. You're margarita won't have time to start melting before you begin imbibing that last little taste of summer.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Wide panel, the scouts – and now Lili – surround Jim's limp form. They're removing his envirosuit. Their own helmets are gone, it's not clear where they are yet but it's not in the airlock. Libby and Emily and Robyn are close together, and Lili is farthest from Jim's head, positioned in a supervisory role.
One of the boys: Whoa, does this guy stink or what?
One of the girls: Phew!

Panel 2
Medium close-up on Lili, showing a couple of other scouts in the frame, looking sideways at her.
Lili: The lower air pressure pushed everything out of his gut into his suit.

Panel 3
Broader shot, taking in more of the scouts, and some more parts of Jim's pressure suit coming off, but at the moment all the scouts are laughing uproariously. We can see now they are back in the common area of the hab.
Lili: It's called vacuum diarrhea.
Group: [laughter]
