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
Seamus and Nicole riding the same elevator they were in shortly after they first arrived at Ishtar Station. They are both looking tired.
Caption: A few uneventful hours later, back at Ishtar Station:
Seamus: Now, for a good 8 hours' rest and we can prepare to meet your mother at Pellucidar.
Nicole: ...
Panel 2
Closer 2-shot of Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Is there a problem?
Nicole: I'm not sure now that I should take you to meet Mother.

Panel 3
The two emerge from the lift into a busy concourse. Seamus is expressing a mix of surprise and mild grief. Nicole looks a bit grim.
Seamus: I beg your pardon?
Seamus: I promise to shower and put on a clean mu-mu.
Panel 4
Seamus and Nicole walk down a corridor.
Nicole: It's not your body odor – which is surprisingly inoffensive, given, well, given the circumstances.
Seamus: Well, that's a relief.
Panel 5
The two approach the entrance to their hotel, the Óstán O'Siodhachain .
Nicole: Maybe it's not your fault, but you attract danger, Seamus.
Nicole: And I don't want to expose my mother to that.

Panel 6
Seamus and Nicole make their way through the hotel lobby. Nicole is looking exasperated.
Seamus: Are you serious?
Nicole: Am I serious? Seamus, first someone tried to kill us on Mercury, and just a few hours ago we were nearly shanghaied by East Terrans, according to your speculation.
Panel 7
Seamus and Nicole walking down a hotel corridor, approaching their rooms.
Seamus: Nicole, believe me, your mother would not be endangered by meeting us.
Nicole: Huh.

Panel 8
At the door to Nicole's room, she's standing just inside the doorway, facing Seamus who is still in the corridor.
Seamus: Let's continue this discussion in the morning when we're both refreshed, eh?
Nicole: All right, Seamus. Good night.
