Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru
The hiatus is over, but now's still a good time to go back and read the previous volume of QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux. Now available in digital format on Kindle and Drive Thru Comics!
QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlleux asks 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. And speaking of, 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.
As a bonus, we've added sixteen pages of "The Trial", a supplement to "Château Périlleux" which was not included in the printed version. Enjoy!

The Transcript For This Page
We are back in the UWRS High Commissioner's office. This time Guy is absent, instead, his Chief stands on the other side of the desk. (This time we will have varying angles rather than one shot used repeatedly.)
High Commissioner: 80 Billion Continentals. This 'King Reginald' character must think we're idiots.
Chief: Our legal department confirms that his reading of our laws and treaties is correct.
Medium close-up of the High Commissioner, banging his fist on his desk with barely-contained anger
HC: Then we need a new legal department! Laws exist to help us implement policy, not to impede us!
Looking over the HC's shoulder at the Chief, who is looking uncomfortable.
HC: This is on the QT, understand? Our internal financial projections indicate we face a world-wide meltdown if we don't get an infusion of Three Trillion Continentals into our system.
Two-shot of HC and Chief, whatever angle you like so that we can see both of their faces.
Chief: Why don't we go after the tax havens here on Earth?
HC: If we did we'd be stepping on the toes of very powerful people. Smarten up.
