A personal message from the cartoonist: [ Aug 31, 2015 ]
Hey everyone, I really appreciate all my readers, new and long-standing, who enjoy reading my fanciful stories. Even though only a small percentage of you buy the printed volumes. I understand, times are tough. Yesterday I saw a pimp driving an old Honda Civic.
That said, I still need to pay rent, keep the lights on, and feed myself and my disabled child.
Maintaining a 5-day-per-week schedule on this strip is a full-time job, even with the help of a hired colorist. Advertising, book sales and sporadic donations help support me but to put it plainly, after the death of my wife I need more income to keep the strip going. I've been supplementing my income with savings which will run out next year if I don't bring in more dough. So, I've turned to Patreon.
Patreon is a website that was originally created for musicians who distribute work on-line but also works for authors and artists in the new Internet world. If you like the strip and want it to continue updating more than one or two days per week, please become a patron, donating anywhere from one dollar per month upwards through my Patreon page. Just click on the Patreon button below the comic on the quantumvibe.com page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.
Again, thanks for reading!

The Transcript For This Page
Seamus, Vanessa, Nicole seated at a restaurant table. Décor looks like an actual Italian bistro. Wine has been served, as have salads, but no main course yet.
Seamus: I must say, this Caesar dressing is quite good.
Nicole: Everything here is. I like the atmosphere of the place, too.
Nicole: So what is it you need to tell me?
Closer 2-shot of Vanessa and Nicole. Nicole is holding her half-finished wine glass.
Vanessa: I haven't finished my wine, darling.
Nicole: Quit stalling. Or were all your lectures about honest dealing just a load of brack?
Vanessa puts her wine glass down, and steels herself for a confession.
Vanessa: Very well, my child.
Vanessa: Remember how you asked who your father is, and I explained that as a clone you don't have a father?
Nicole: Yes … ?
Three-shot of Seamus, Vanessa and Nicole. Nicole does a take. Seamus smiles and wiggles his fingers at her.
Vanessa: Well, in fact, you have eleven fathers, genetically speaking.
Vanessa: And this walrus here is one of them.
