A personal message from the cartoonist: [ Aug 31, 2015 ]
Hey everyone, I really appreciate all my readers, new and long-standing, who enjoy reading my fanciful stories. Even though only a small percentage of you buy the printed volumes. I understand, times are tough. Yesterday I saw a pimp driving an old Honda Civic.
That said, I still need to pay rent, keep the lights on, and feed myself and my disabled child.
Maintaining a 5-day-per-week schedule on this strip is a full-time job, even with the help of a hired colorist. Advertising, book sales and sporadic donations help support me but to put it plainly, after the death of my wife I need more income to keep the strip going. I've been supplementing my income with savings which will run out next year if I don't bring in more dough. So, I've turned to Patreon.
Patreon is a website that was originally created for musicians who distribute work on-line but also works for authors and artists in the new Internet world. If you like the strip and want it to continue updating more than one or two days per week, please become a patron, donating anywhere from one dollar per month upwards through my Patreon page. Just click on the Patreon button below the comic on the quantumvibe.com page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.
Again, thanks for reading!

The Transcript For This Page
Bok and Zander seated in the monorail car. Bok is surreptitiously handing Zander a small packet.
Caption: Two days later:
Zander: Thanks. I was completely out.
Bok: No hu-hu. Have people been talking about, you know …?
Zander: No, not that I've heard.
Bok and Zander.
Zander: But I'm not exactly a social butterfly, you know.
Bok: True, but that's one point in your favor.
Bok: Social butterflies tend to go flapping their jaws all over the place.
Sofia is seen from the left, walking up the aisle towards where Zander and Bok are sitting ...
Bok: Oh, hey, Sofia! Miss me?
Sofia walks right past Zander and Bok, towards the back row of seats. Zander had been getting ready to vacate his own seat for her.
Sofia: Keep your seat, Zander.
Bok: What gives?
Sofia is seated in the rear row. Bok has gotten up and is standing in the aisle next to her. She doesn't look at him.
Bok: Are you mad at me for something?
Sofia: I'm sorry Bok, but … after last Threeday, I'm afraid we can't be together anymore.
Sofia: You're too much of a bad-boy now. I … can't risk my family's social standing.
Bok angrily stomps back up the aisle. Sofia looks unhappily up after him.
Sofia: I hope you understand?
Bok: Oh, I understand completely.
Bok: You're not worth my time.
