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
A couple of Chinese 'Underground Railroad' members introduce Robyn to Robert 'Bobcat' Katzman, a space pilot. Bobcat is on the large side, thought not as large as Sajjan, and has a big curly mop of dark-blond hair and a half-beard.

Caption (Robyn): My Underground Railroad protectors introduced me to Robert Katzman, owner/operator of the Wandering Jew, a tramp steamer out of Ceres.
Caption: Everybody calls him 'Bobcat.'

Panel 2
Bobcat walks through an airlock leading to his ship, with Robyn following behind, carrying a small rucksack. She turns to wave good-bye to her UR benefactors..
Caption (Robyn): Bobcat was headed for Vesta, but was willing to make a stop at Ceres where I'd be dropped off.
Panel 3
Bobcat shows Robyn to a very small, private cabin with a sleeping cocoon, a compartment for her belongings, and a tiny sink with a mirror.
Caption (Robyn): 'I was apprehensive at first, traveling with a strange man, but I had my own private space and Bobcat was a perfect gentleman.'
Panel 4
Exterior view of the Wandering Jew blasting away from the Moon.

Robyn (thought, from inside the ship): If this ain't flying 'up, up to the sky,' I don't know what is.

Panel 5
In the control cabin of the Wandering Jew, Bobcat monitors his instruments while Robyn, in the co-pilot's seat, gazes out a port-hole.

Caption (Robyn): 'The Underground Railroad had given me some clothes, a T-comm, and several grams of gold.

Caption: 'I was supposed to find someone named Reggie King once I got to Ceres.

Panel 6
Robyn in the Ceres Spaceport Terminal, shuffling along with difficulty in the low gravity, rucksack slung over her shoulder.

Caption (Robyn): During my time with the Underground Railroad people and then with Bobcat, over a year's worth of stress had melted away.

Panel 7
Robyn is walking (still with some difficulty) along a causeway, unaware of a shadowy figure that has appeared behind her.

Caption: For the first time since my arrest in Singapore, I felt safe.
