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
Robyn and Sajjan continue their lunch. Robyn is getting a bit animated, whereas Sajjan just listens silently.
Robyn: They said the eclipse caused rapid cooling on the windows when the Tower entered Earth's shadow.
Robyn: Because the Moon was at perigee, and the Sun, Earth and Moon were all in alignment, tidal forces were at maximum.
Robyn is holding her arms wide – we can see a bit of Sajjan eating quietly.
Robyn: That's what set off the Moon quake, which flexed the stressed windows and – KABLOOEY! – they blew out.
Robyn: There were 17 deaths, but – get this – they were all either guards or administrators. No inmates were harmed in the making of this disaster.
Looking past Robyn at Sajjan, who is smiling a funny little smile.
Robyn: Except for us – we're listed as 'missing and presumed dead.'
Sajjan: So I guess all that prayin' and meditatin' paid off.
Robyn cocks her head quizzically, Sajjan continues smiling.
Sajjan: Our 'psychotic breakdown' trick didn't work, but it looks like we got our divine intervention after all!
