Project Complete!

Guido and Kennerly celebrate the Quantum Vibe Omnibus 1 project completed and exceeding goal.

We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.

Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.

Strip 10 -- Turnaround

Panel 1
Establishing shot of the Burner arcing through space. Leave room for EFT logo.

Guy: (from inside ship) Ms. Stellina, I am certain that ever since our encounter with that insolent – handcuff monger – there’s something different about my food.

Panel 2
Inside Guy’s 'cabin.' It’s actually a cramped little 2.5m x 2m x 1.5m alcove with a sliding fabric door across the open face. Guy is sitting cross-legged on his bunk, picking absently at a tray of food in front of him, looking annoyed as usual. Fiorella is seated on a small desk facing the foot of the bunk. (There is no chair, one would sit on the bunk while working at the desk.) Trying to cheer him up.

Fiorella: Well, I did scan it. Nothing poisonous, but they seem to have left out any spices. You can have my food if you like, it tastes wonderful.

Guy: Perish the thought. I will endure this insult, and deal with these jokers later.

Panel 3

Focus on Fiorella with chin on knuckles, gazing thoughtfully at Guy, who we see a bit of from behind at the right edge of the frame.

Fiorella: I wonder how the Cerereans will react to us?

Fiorella 2: What do you know about Ceres?

Panel 4

Focus on Guy, picking at his plate, regaining his usual annoyed expression, not looking back at Fiorella.

Guy: They’re getting rich and not paying their share. I’ve got all the numbers in my PDA. That’s all I need to know.

Panel 5
Two-shot of Guy and Fiorella, at a very awkward-looking upside-down angle. Should be as disorienting as you can make it. Fiorella looks unconcerned, Guy is visibly nauseated.

Guy: Fiorella ….

Guy 2: I think I’m going to be sick.

Fiorella: Relax, Guy.

Panel 6

Looking at Fiorella from Guy’s POV. She sitting there talking like nothing’s wrong but there seems to be a spiral warp effect distorting her and the wall behind her.

Fiorella: It’s Turnaround. Your inner ear is reacting to the Burner’s rotation as we flip ends.

Fiorella 2: Be glad they did it under power instead of cutting engines.

Panel 7
Looking at the outer side of the fabric door, listening in.

Fiorella: Zero G would have been a lot worse on your ….
