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!

Large panel. Exterior view of the Kobayashi Corporation headquarters, a not-terribly imposing office-park type building, three storeys tall. We see it from one corner, where the main entrance is situated. Above the broad entryway is space for the corporation logo – stylized pine trees beneath racing clouds (I'll handle the logo, just leave me some room for it). The building is about 100 meters long on each side and sits on a bit of a rise, so there are some steps (maybe a dozen or so) leading up from the curb to the entryway. The exterior is a combination of glass windows and faux-limestone facade. Along one wall near the entrance, at the ground level, is a patio with tables (some with umbrellas) and chairs. The Rolls has just pulled up in front.
The Transcript For This Page
Ernie: Dis mus' be de plaze.
Drenkowski: It is.
The three make their way up the stairs – Drenkowski is several feet ahead and off a bit to the right of the brothers, who are struggling against the unaccustomed gravity. Drenkowski isn't bothered at all. We are seeing them from the front, with the Rolls in the background.
Ernie (whisper): Stairs. Why did there have to be stairs?
Bert (whisper): Shush.
Reverse angle. The brothers are half-way up the steps. Drenkowski is closer to the entrance but stands to one side (the brother's left) as Tobikuman Kobayashi strides out of the doorway. Tobi is a not-tall, somewhat heavy-set, Japanese man wearing an aloha shirt, chinos shorts, sandals, and dark glasses. He holds his arms wide in a gesture of greeting.
Tobi: Hi guys, welcome to the Little Prince.
