BHP Adds Digital Distribution [ Sep 29, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 1.1 -

That's right, Big Head Press has signed up with DriveThru Comics to begin distributing high quality digital copies of stories from the BHP catalog. Delivered as a 150 pixels per inch (ppi) PDF file, each digital book provides you a much higher resolution story viewing experience, whether on your smartphone, tablet or computer monitor.

(Not to mention, of course, you can keep the story on your own gadget(s) for convenient off-line viewing.)

Over the coming weeks and months, we will be releasing a new digital book each week. The first title of our catalog we are making available is the very first Escape From Terra story, World Ceres. Originally the leading story in the volume 1 print edition, we are making it available as a standalone hi-rez digital volume 1.1 at the very low price of $3.25(US). Each week, we will be offering more Escape From Terra stories in similarly sized hi-rez digital books until we complete the series.

So, get your DriveThru Comics account today and stand by for more digital book announcements!


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.
