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.

What's Next?

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux concludes

Château Périlleux may have concluded, but Quantum Vibe continues. We're taking a short break, but we will be back in a few weeks with new story. In the meantime, be sure to check back each Monday as we'll have a "break" strip for you to enjoy with announcements about the upcoming Quantum Vibe stories among other things. See ya!

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
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.

Panel 2
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.

Panel 3
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.

Panel 4
Robyn cocks her head quizzically, Sajjan continues smiling.
Robyn: Huh?
Sajjan: Our 'psychotic breakdown' trick didn't work, but it looks like we got our divine intervention after all!
