Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]
He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.
THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.
Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]
QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)
Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.
The Transcript For This Page
Medium shot of the MP. A panel in the wall near him opens, and a three-pronged, thick line snakes out through the air.
MP: Indeed, you will show us your edge, Alyss Roaz.
MP: Although not quite in the way that you mean, of course.
MP: The edge you have that we want is something else entirely.
The line's three prongs, with flat ends, attach themselves to Alyss' head.
MP (OP): You are the source of the so-called Murphy Drive technology.
MP: You have an understanding of it deeper than can be reverse-engineered, even by other humans.
MP: You will give us that understanding, and we will no longer be at the mercy of you anarchists.
Close-up on Alyss, grimacing while glaring back at the MP in a rage.
MP (OP): We cannot defeat your implant's defenses, but with a direct physical connection, we can extract what we require.
Alyss: Oh, you think so? You thugs are all alike.
