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 and Hitomi continue lounging in the observation lounge. Hitomi moves closer to Nicole.
Nicole: But don't you get tired of … servicing, these four men?
Hitomi: Sometimes, which is why periodically I like clean my palette, so to speak ...
Close 2-shot of Nicole and Hitomi. Hitomi is leaned way into Nicole's personal space, as if leading up to a kiss. Nicole recoils nervously.
Nicole: Clean your … oh!
Nicole: Er, ah, th-thanks, but I really don't, y'know, flop that way.
Medium 2-shot of Nicole and Hitomi. Nicole is still blushing a bit, as Hitomi touches a hidden button on her left wrist with her right finger. As she does, her torso and hair start to shimmer, outlines becoming indistinct.
Hitomi: Don't be embarrassed … we all have our tastes ...
Same shot, now Hitomi is transformed into a 'pretty' young man, in similarly slutty clothing. Nicole just looks stunned.
Hitomi: No -? Abdi just loves this look.
