Quantum Vibe X 1000! [ Apr 17, 2015 ]
Today's (April 17, 2015) Quantum Vibe strip is the one thousandth strip of the Quantum Vibe saga. (This does not include the "Leap of Faith" guest strips, or the "Tales From The Front," "Our Story Thus Far" and other fillers which had pushed our total update count past 1,000 several weeks previously.)
Not many web-comics make it to the 1,000-strip milestone, and we thank our readers for staying with us through this epic story, especially those of you who have supported us with your purchases and donations. We would never have made it this far without you.
So, sit back and take in your place in history. Do you hear birds chirping? Drink deeply the sights, sounds, and smells of the moment. Or maybe have a drink. We have.
New Colorist [ Jan 15, 2015 ]
We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.
The Transcript For This Page
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.
Seamus: Something wrong?
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.
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.
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.
