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
Now the girls are approaching the Hotel cafe, bumping and grinding along. We can see about a dozen soldiers whooping and cheering.
Caption: The girls sauntered towards the staring soldiers who had joined in with Belters with their own cheers, whistles and bawdy catcalls.
Medium shot of Rhonda, among the soldiers, trying to bark out orders but being drowned out in the din.
Caption: Certain they would soon be under attack, Rhonda tried to order the men to be quiet and take defensive positions. But she was drowned out by the roar echoing across the domed plaza.
Now just 3 meters from the cafe railing, the girls continue bumping, grinding, and blowing kisses.
Caption: The girls continued their floor-show for a few minutes. Suddenly ...
The girls have about-faced and are walking Ceres-style back over to the Belter side of the plaza. The soldiers look confused and disappointed. Among them is Rhonda.
Rhonda (thought): Now what?
In the foreground, to one side, we see Ed. In the medium background, we see Rhonda at the cafe railing, pulling her comm up to her ear.
