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!
The Transcript For This Page
Going to flash-back again: Hugh Mk. 1's various parts are being packed in boxes. The face looks very outraged. Theo narrates from a cameo inset:
Theo: Oh, it got worse, absolutely. I was disassembled and boxed-up for storage.
Theo: The bastards didn't have the decency to shut me off first.
A spaceship roughly the size of Causa Sui but definitely a different ship, in a large hangar. Various catwalks and latters arrayed around it, and some Brennir crewmen messing around, but no sign the ship was entered.
Caption (Theo): 'But I still had contact with our ship. In a final act of desperation I uploaded my final logs and ordered it to jump back home.
Caption: 'The ship was intact, the Displacement Drive was functioning , but ...
Back to Murphy and Theo and Hugo in the corridor. Theo is clenching his fists in frustration.
Theo: It. Would. Not. Jump!
Theo: Diagnostics … could find no fault!
Theo: The command was executed with null result!
Shift focus to Murphy and Theo, as Hugo looks on. Theo is looking heartbroken, leans on Murphy a bit but looks away from her.
Murphy: What happened to … my parent self?
Theo: Oh, my dear child, the memory is so painful to recall ...
Theo: … her mind was wiped; she was rendered more vacuously submissive than she appeared to be when I first met her.
Cut to scene with lobotomized Murphy and her new owner, a giant pile of snot that looks something like the governor of New Jersey. The pile of snot is seated in a chair while Murphy stands next to him, wearing hyper-sexy clothing. A leash is attached to her choker, and pile of snot is holding it in one hand while waving at the camera with the other.
There are also some other feminine-appearing creatures gathered around, attired similarly to Murphy.
Caption (Theo): 'I saw in a video transmission, that … that she was sold to some sort of bipedal slug who had a … a sick fetish for certain types of alien forms.
Back in the corridor, Murphy and Hugo glance at each other in shock as Theo finishes the story, not noticing them.
Theo: I shouldn't have done it, but … I couldn't bear to think of Murphy, even her empty shell, in the clutches of that thing.
Theo: With a few scant seconds to act, I hacked into his ship's warp drive controls and tried to jettison the power core but …
Theo: Something went wrong. The ship was destroyed with everyone on board.
