Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
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 ]
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
Ralf has pulled Eithne away from the counter, where Mezzy and the two captains watch them.
Ralf: Twenty percent? I'm not sure I can get enough shifting this swag for the normal fees.
Eithne: I won't fail. Go on to the marketplace and do your best shifting.
Eithne: And maybe we'll have better than ship's rations for dinner.
Back at the counter, Mezzy confers with the captains.
Ephemeris Captain: Good to see you taking steps, but we still have damage needing repairs.
Mezzy: Go get some estimates and bring 'em back to me.
Mezzy: If they're reasonable … I'll cover your costs.
Satisfied, the captains depart.
Ephemeris Captain: Yer all heart, Mezzy.
Mezzy: Better a hole in my wallet than a hole in my head.
First Captain: Ya also got a way with words.
Eithne is sitting at a console, regarding the monitor and interface. Mezzy is standing behind her, supervising.
Mezzy: This link will lead you to the sensor net, and this menu will take you to the sequential-logic section.
Eithne: Yes yes, so far so good.
Eithne (thought): I wish he'd quit breathing down my neck.
Eithne is looking at her gloved hands.
Eithne (thought): This would go a lot easier if I could touch the console with my bare fingers.
Eithne: But I can't take off these 'fake hands' with him watching me.
Mezzy turns away in response to an angry voice calling him. Eithne sees her moment and takes off one of the gloves.
Angry voice: Mezzy! Ya pea-brained scum-bucket! Why'd ya direct me to an occupied slip?
Mezzy: Keep your pants on, Vinty! What slip was that?
Eithne (thought): Saved by the fail.
