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
Two-shot of Fiorella and Doris in the Split-Tail cabin.
Doris: So what is that thing, anyway?
Fiorella: Well, it looks like a Moai.
View of one of the monitors on the console, showing us for the first time what the asteroid looks like. It very strongly resembles one of the famous “Easter Island Head” carvings. We can see Fiorella's hand pointing to it.
Fiorella: Huge prehistoric carvings found on Easter Island, on Terra.
Fiorella: They look like what we saw, but a way lot smaller.
We see Doris in foreground right, looking thoughtfully at the monitor. In the background left Fiorella continues her mini-discourse.
Fiorella: Some people think the natives of Easter Island didn't have the technology to quarry, transport, carve and erect the Moai.
Doris: Then who do they think made them?
Medium shot of Fiorella, looking unsure of herself as she speaks.
Fiorella (quietly): Aliens.
