Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]

Big Head Press Supply Store - Mugs, T-Shirts, Posters & More...

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!




New Quantum Vibe Starts Monday! [ Dec 1, 2017 ]

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - Starts Monday December 4th, 2017!

Just a heads-up QV fans, new strips for QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlieu start their run on Monday, December 4th!.

This time around you will notice a slight change in format. Instead of 3 panel strips, Monday through Friday, we are switching to 4 panel strips, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This move helps with meeting monthly budget requirements for producing this fine story, as well as provide a better story telling in each strip byd adding the extra panel.

We hope you enjoy the new format. Don't forget to click the ad links on our site and if you are enjoying this slightly mad sci-fi adventure do please click over to our store and purchase some copies (both in print and digital formats). That's what allows us to keep telling the Quantum Vibe story.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Nicole, Seamus and the Pilot inside the shuttle. Nicole is peering at her holographic display.
Nicole: Okay, we're at the 250 meter mark – now.
Seamus: Hit the lowest left icon, and a requester for range should come up.
Seamus: Set it at 50 meters.
Panel 2
Focus on Pilot, we can see Seamus behind him.
Pilot: I have just lost the beacon to Ishtar.
Pilot: Also, I've lost radar. What gives?
Seamus: I'm afraid this is an unavoidable effect of my EM-shield.
Panel 3
Focus on Nicole and her display. She still sees multiple blips on her screen but they look different.
Nicole: I'm still seeing the traffic – but it looks different.
Seamus: Ah, very good!
Panel 4
Closer shot on Nicole, looking confused.
Nicole: But what am I – hey, wait a minute!
Nicole: There's a new blip that wasn't there before – 12 hundred klicks away and closing at 7 klicks per second!
Panel 5
Close-up on Seamus, grinning triumphantly.
Seamus: AH-HA! I knew it!
Seamus: They can cloak their radar signature but they can't hide their mass.

Panel 6
Looking forward in the shuttle cabin from the rear – we see that one of the covered boxes has glowing lights showing through the tarp covering.
Pilot: Your device can detect gravitic-field displacements that small?
Seamus: Indeed it can.
Seamus: I developed it to detect small asteroids but this application works as well.
Panel 7
Exterior of the shuttle, rocketing through space, now it has a faint bubble around it.
Pilot: But why the EM-shield?
Seamus: Unless I miss my guess, our interlopers are trying to take control of your shuttle remotely, via wireless.

Panel 8
Three-shot of Nicole, Pilot and Seamus inside the shuttle, focus on Pilot and Seamus.
Pilot: To what end?
Seamus: Most likely to board and kidnap us. We have valuable information.
