Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]
He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.
THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.
Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]
QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)
Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.
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.
