A personal message from the cartoonist: [ Aug 31, 2015 ]

Patreon

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

Panel 1
Nicole is sitting on the edge of her acceleration couch, looking pensive. Seamus, still reclined in his but without the straps on, has his Watson-tablet propped on his belly, reading it.
Nicole: {sigh}
Seamus: Something wrong?

Panel 2
Exterior shot of Spanish Wells rocketing through space (although the burners aren't glowing as hot as they were the first time we saw the ship).
Nicole: I don't think it was a good idea for us to set up a press conference and then bail on it.
Seamus: No?

Panel 3
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus.
Nicole: I'd think burning a bunch of journos is not really good public relations.
Seamus: Oh, don't worry – I found a fill-in who knows how to handle journos.

Panel 4
Cut to a stage in a room back at Helios Base. Enry (the Dispatcher) is behind the podium addressing a throng of journos. One of them is Claud Southend.
Claud: WY IZ SUN-DYVER GURL AFRAYD 2 FAYS TEH MEDIAZ?
Enry: Have you taken a look in the mirror lately, chrome-dome? I can barely stand to face you myself.
