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!
