Get Your EFT v3.1! [ Nov 23, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 3.1 - The King & I: Mars / Space Scouts

So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.

Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.

The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

EFT v2.4 Now @ DriveThru! [ Nov 16, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 2.4 - The Christmas War

They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.

Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terra’s own bloody history which might avoid the horror of war. And if there is, what resistance might there be from those who crave the battlefield?

These questions are answered and more in 40 pages of “The Christmas War”.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Exterior view of the L5-City. It is an enormous, jumbled complex of artificial habitats orbiting at the Terra-Luna Lagrange 5 point.
Caption: L5-City
Nicole (from somewhere in the City): No, Mom, I'm still working at Audio-Chrome.

Panel 2
Inside a concourse within one of the city habitats. A dazzling, almost incomprehensible jumble of shapes, platforms, railings, and people (themselves often of weird shapes) some of whom are flying through the open spaces in their Bubbs. Somewhere in the midst of this is Nicole, riding in her Bubb.
Nicole: They give me flex-time, so I can attend Philbert's shows.

Panel 3
Full-length shot of Nicole gliding along in her Bubb. She has one palm placed along-side her face, with her fingertips over her ear, indicating she's having a tele-convo with someone (her Mom) via her 'Plant. The hand gesture is more a social habit than a technical requirement – it's so people don't think you're talking to yourself. We can see some other people flying by in their own Bubbs.
Nicole: Yes. No. Yes, I'm still covering expenses for both of us.

Panel 4
Medium close-up on Nicole, her hand aside her face, rolling her eyes in annoyance.
Nicole: He's going to be a big hit real soon, Mom, you should hear him perform.

Panel 5
Full-length shot of Nicole flying away from us, into what looks like a major traffic zone of flying Bubbs – something like an aerial turnpike, with no pedestrians.
Nicole: {sigh} Mom, we've been over this a hundred times already.

Panel 6
Medium shot of Nicole flying in her Bubb, we can see other people in their Bubs flying along all sides of her in a fairly tight formation.
Nicole: It's not that I don't appreciate the education you paid for.

Panel 7
Medium close-up on Nicole, she's grimmacing and has her eyes shut for a moment as she contains her frustration.
Nicole: Mom, no … Mom, will you listen?

Panel 8
Suddenly Nicole's Bubb stops in a chain collision with the other Bubs in front and behind. The Bubs instantly expand to contain their users, cushioning the impacts and preventing harm.
