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!



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Nicole, in her Bubb, in an airlock that's a bit darker than the one she left a few minutes before. A sigil on the wall reads 'EG1.' She's still shaky but recovering.
Electronic voice: Outer door sealed, lock pressurizing.

Panel 2
A door in the airlock ceiling opens, Nicole looks up at it.
Electronic voice: Please proceed through overhead door to reception area.
Nicole: Overhead -?
Panel 3
Nicole in her Bubb enters another room about 5 meters square. In the corner we see an airlock door in the floor through which she has egressed. Nicole is looking around with a mixture of nervousness and curiosity. The walls are covered in a pattern of large, circular dimples.
Electronic voice: Welcome to Castle Hodge-Podge. Please dismount your Bubb and approach the inner door.

Panel 4A
Split panel – having dismounted, Nicole stands before a rectangular doorway. There is no indication of a button or means of opening it.
Nicole: Uh – hello?

Panel 4B
The door whooshes upwards. We see Nicole through the doorway, and she's taken aback by the sudden movement.
Nicole: {GASP!}
Panel 5A
Split panel again. Medium close-up of Nicole looking slightly downward, eyes wide.
No dialog.

Panel 5B
Another split panel. A close-up of a man's rather pudgy hand held sideways across a broad torso, clad in dark, flowing clothing
No dialog

Panel 6A
Nicole looking slightly upward, still eyes wide
Nicole: huh ...

Panel 6B
View of the same man from the chest up to the treble-chin
No dialog.

Panel 7A
Nicole looking up at a 45 degree angle, her mouth agape.
Nicole: ... ubbuh ...

Panel 7B
Looking up at the face of Dr. Seamus O Murchada – clean-shaven, a broad, generous mouth, a prominent nose, a mop of curly hair, and tired , brow-less eyes looking down at the camera.
No dialog.

Panel 8A
Full-length shot of Nicole and Seamus facing each other across the doorway. Seamus is nearly two heads taller than Nicole and a bit more than a meter wide. His clothing is loose and drapes almost to the floor. On Earth he'd weigh 500 pounds.
Nicole: .. um ...

Panel 8B
Seamus turns around and motions Nicole to follow him.
Seamus: I get that rather a lot.
Seamus: Please come with me.
