Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.
From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.
But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!
The Transcript For This Page
Panel filled entirely with text, except for cameo of Nicole, who is narrating. Next panel carries the illustration.
Caption: 'When I did call my mother, I think I nearly gave her a stroke. She was barely able to speak coherently. So, Li and I got on the fastest ship to Venus and visited her in Pellucidar Station. To say she was happy to see us is an understatement. I think she cried for hours. Made me feel guilty all over again for letting her think I had died.
I wanted to use our Murphy Drive-equipped four-seater to get there sooner, but Li pointed out that we really needed to limit exposing the technology until we were ready to go public with it. I couldn't persuade him otherwise, mainly because I knew he was right.
But after zipping around the System and to nearby stars, it was kind of frustrating that I had to spend eight days getting to Venus. At least I had Li with me to keep the time, well, interesting.'
Establishing shot, inside Vanessa Oresme's apartment. Nicole and Vanessa stride quickly forward to embrace one another, as Li and a handsome gentleman (presumably Vanessa's boyfriend?) shake hands.
Caption: 'She wasn't happy that I could only spend three days visiting. Mothers are funny like that. It didn't help that I couldn't explain to her what it was I was working on and why it was so important that I get going on it as soon as possible. She understands the need for trade secrecy but I guess she was naturally curious. I did promise her that within a year I could tell her everything.
Because with the embargo on our report and meeting with the Boneheads expiring after that time-span, we were on a deadline: Invent a defense against a Murphy Drive-based assault, or … I don't know what. Take all our gear, formulas and data and go hide in another solar system, I guess.
Li was able to help a little, but he also called in Moe, and she was able to help a lot more. That girl is a whizz at hardware design.'
Nicole, Li and Moe hard at work in a design laboratory full of equipment.
