Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux Now On Sale!
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.
Big Head Press announces the release of the latest graphic novel in the QUANTUM VIBE series: Château Périlleux, in which 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.
Available now direct from Big Head Press.
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.
The Transcript For This Page
Bert crawls painstakingly along Dactyl's surface.
Caption: Bert had to move carefully towards his goal. In Dactyl's near-zero gravity, one false move could bounce him into space, where he'd be helpless without his jet-pack.
We see Bert from behind as he peers over the rim of the deep crater at Little Toot and the smuggler's spaceship. We can also see the two shuttle-craft.
Bert (thinks): Hope I'm not expected.
At the bottom of the crater, Bert carefully approaches Little Toot. We can see part of the other ship in the background. We should also see some lines anchoring both ships to the crater floor.
Bert (thinking): Little Toot's lights are on, the other ship looks dark.
Bert 'stands' near the base of Little Toot. He has an access panel on the side of her hull open and he's reaching inside. There's a wire attached to his helmet, the other end is in the hand reaching into the access panel.
Bert (thinking): Here goes nothing.
