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
Ralf is standing next to a console that serves as a food/beverage dispenser. He's inserting one of the mugs into a slot, getting it refilled with guovett. We can see Eithne still in her pilot's seat, in the background.
Ralf: 'Flexiderm'? It sounds like a disease.
Eithne: It's something you can put over a spaceframe to change its color and even shape, a little.

Panel 2
Ralf has returned to the control cabin. Now he's standing with Eithne in front of the rear-center console, where a pair of screens show planar and perspective views of their police cruiser.
Ralf: So we can disguise our cruiser?
Eithne: Exactly. It's part of the 'stealth' system built into a craft like this.
Eithne: Although, I'm not sure an active scanner can't see through this, at short range.

Panel 3
Cut to exterior of the cruiser, warping through space.
Ralf (from ship): That should not be a problem at Campeche Rock.
Ralf: There, any active scanning is considered highly disrespectful.
Ralf: And likely to spark a fire-fight.

Panel 4
Same shot as panel 2, except the images of the cruiser are altered.
Ralf: That's a … classic design.
Eithne: It's a 35-year-old courier craft, modified extensively.
Eithne: It makes us look old and uninteresting.

Panel 5
Ralf studies the images.
Ralf: Yes … uninteresting will serve us well, here.
Ralf: As an independent craft, we shall need a name for it.
Eithne: What do you suggest?
Panel 6
Exterior shot of the cruiser with its changed 'skin.'
Ralf (from cruiser): Among my people is an ancient story about a daring wanderer who has many fantastic adventures. His name was, 'Ha'Arokk.'
Eithne (from cruiser): 'Space Cruiser Ha'Arokk.' Works for me.
