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
The Dryhaven, with Causa Sui still tucked in underneath, is at station near an asteroid roughly ten times its size. We can see a force-field bubble enclosing the asteroid as well as the ships. We can see several small flashes on the bubble. The local brown-dwarf star is large enough to show a good-sized disc, but is out-shined by its sister red-dwarf 100 gigameters distant.
Hugo (from Dryhaven):You weren't exaggerating about the 'chaotic' nature of this space.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Without our re-enforced shielding, we'd soon be cut to shreds by all these high-speed micro-liths.

Panel 2
The workshop aboard Dryhaven. Hugo is fussing over a gadget resting on a worktable as Shrack, Krasp, and Murphy look on.
Hugo: Krasp, I'm sorry, but this pento-matrix slicer is still not up to the specs I require.
Krasp: That was my third attempt, Doctor. It looks right to me, and I don't know what else I can do for it.

Panel 3
Closer two-shot of Hugo and Shrack.
Hugo: This is a waste of time. I have equipment aboard my ship that will serve.
Hugo: I must return to Causa Sui immediately.
Shrack: I'm afraid I can't allow that right now.

Panel 4
Another angle that show Krasp and Murphy in the background, looking on.
Hugo: 'Can't allow it'?
Hugo: I had been under the impression that we were guests here, not captives.
Shlack: Conditions here are too hazardous for you to space-walk back to your vessel.

Panel 5
Another exterior shot of the two vessels near the asteroid. A harvester craft from the Dryhaven is at work on the asteroid's surface, cutting into the megalith. The force-field bubble surrounds all, and we see several flashes across the barrier's surface.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Once we've completed our harvesting runs and return to the comet, it will be safe for you to disembark.
Hugo: But that will be several days from now! And this project has dependencies ...
Panel 6
Group shot of Shlack, Hugo, Krasp, Murphy. Shlack is laying down the law; Hugo and Murphy look unhappy, and Krasp looks uncomfortable.
Shlack: This discussion is over, Doctor Galvéz.
Shrack: I'm the master of this vessel and I aim to be fair and reasonable but my word is law here. Am I clear?
Hugo: As crystal … Captain.
