Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On KIndle & DriveThru

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux, by Scott Bieser now on sale direct from Big Head Press.

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

Panel 1
We are back at Arana Awatere's theme park. Doris and Fiorella are just leaving Arana's office after their conference. They are moving along a corridor, pulling themselves along in zero-gee via hand-grips in the walls. Buzz is flying along ahead of them.

Doris: So Arana told us to 'get out there and enjoy' ourselves.

Doris: I don't know about you, but I'd like to get a few hours of sleep before we sally forth.

Panel 2
They continue along the corridor. We see them passing an intersection.

Fiorella: No argument from me.

Fiorella: Buzz, is there someplace we can sleep for a bit?

Panel 3
The girls pause, eyes widening, as Buzz turns to answer them.

Buzz: Yes, Fiorella. Arana has put the presidential suite at your disposal.

Panel 4
Same shot. The girls cast sideways glances at each other as Buzz turns to lead the way.

Buzz: Please follow me.

Panel 5
Very large panel, taking entire remainder of page. Allow space for a small inset Panel 6 in the lower right.

Buzz leads the girls into a hangar, filled with a variety of fanciful flying passenger vehicles. Included are a mechanical winged horse, a 2/3-scale model of Baron von Richtofen's red tri-plane ('the bloody Red Baron'), the Wright Brother's plane, the Apollo lunar lander, a flying carpet, a flying saucer, a convincing 'magic cloud,' something that looks like a giant version of Buzz with 'Buzz Bomb' stenciled on the side,and if there's room, any other fanciful conveyance you can think of.

This is a zero-gee area, full of handrails to assist in human movement. The room is hexagonal, with no particular 'floor'. The aircraft appear to be sitting on walls, ceiling, etc.

Buzz: Doris and Fiorella, these are personal vehicles for use within the park's airskin.

Buzz: Are there any craft here that appeal to you?

Panel 6
Close-up of Doris, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.

Doris: Oh, yeah.
