Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale!
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.
Staple! This weekend! Yikes!
Yikes! We almost forgot to tell visitors to the Quantum Vibe page that Scott will be making an appearance at Staple! the indie comics expo, in Austin, Texas this coming weekend, October 12-13.
Scott will be premiering his latest collection of Quantum Vibe strips, QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périllieu. Exclusively available at this show! The trade-paperback will go on sale in other channels soon afterwards.
Sorry for the late notice, hope to see readers there.
The Transcript For This Page
In Guy's office. Reggie lays a calming hand on the distraught Guy's shoulder, while still holding the nuke in his other.
Reggie: Ceres City houses lots of industrial nukes, Guy.
Reggie (2): At any rate, this is a popgun.
Medium close-up on Reggie, looking grimly at the nuke in his hand.
Reggie: Yields a tenth of a kiloton, the same as a measly 100 tons of TNT.
Reggie (2): Great for cracking planetoids, but a piss-poor weapon.
Looking over Reggie's shoulder at Guy, who has the look of dawning realization;
Reggie: Unless, of course, you deliver it right into the landing bay of the ship you want to destroy.
Medium close-up of Guy, who is looking quizzical again.
Guy: But how are we going to shoot that into their cargo bay?
Guy (2): I am certain they have all sorts of anti-missile defenses.
