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 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.
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?
The girls pause, eyes widening, as Buzz turns to answer them.
Buzz: Yes, Fiorella. Arana has put the presidential suite at your disposal.
Same shot. The girls cast sideways glances at each other as Buzz turns to lead the way.
Buzz: Please follow me.
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?
Close-up of Doris, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
Doris: Oh, yeah.
