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
In Seamus' hotel room – looks a lot like Nicole's but the wall decorations are a bit different. Seamus is packing his last suitcase. Nicole stands with her suitcase near the door.
Nicole: Ready soon?
Seamus: This is the last suitcase.
Seamus stands with his three suitcases near Nicole with her one. He is trying to be jovial, but she has a flat expression.
Seamus: Well, that was some adventure, wasn't it?
Seamus: And now, on to Venus! Excitement awaits!
Nicole simply turns and walks out of the room. Her suitcase follows her. Seamus stands there, a bit flummoxed.
Walking as fast as he can with his cane, Seamus catches up with Nicole in the hallway. She still has a flat expression. Their suitcases follow.
Seamus: I sense a lack of enthusiasm.
Seamus: Have I said or done anything to offend you?
The two continue down the corridor.
Nicole: This isn't what I signed up for.
Seamus: Beg pardon?
Nicole stops and turns to face Seamus. She speaks through gritted teeth, anger and resentment beginning to manifest.
Nicole: In the last three days I was nearly burned up in the Sun, had to endure a hellish return trip, and was nearly murdered – first by vacuuming and then by zing-fire.
Seamus: Er, well, yes ...
Nicole and Seamus
Nicole: Goddammit, I never wanted to be a stunt-woman, or a shucking adventurer. I want to do science, not feats of daring, or zing-fighting, or this idiotic intrigue you're so into!
Seamus: Point taken. How can I make this right for you?
Nicole gets in Seamus' face as best she can. He looks cornered.
Nicole: I want to know exactly what I've nearly gotten killed for.
Nicole: No more secrecy, Seamus! Tell me what your project is really about or I'm going home!
