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
In the encounter room, Nichole sits at the far side of the circular bed from Seamus, mostly covered up with pillows and bed-covers.
Seamus: You no doubt have heard about the various expeditions to the stars.
Nicole: Sure. Scores of docuvids have been made from their stories.
Seamus, in the lower left of the panel, against a backdrop of outer space with a late 21st-century spacecraft moving towards the Rigel Kentauri double-star.
Seamus: The first mission to the Alpha Centauri system, crewed by primitive A.I.s, arrived at its destination in 151 S.A.* after 50 years' transit without a hitch.
Seamus: There were no habitable worlds there, but none were expected. It was more a proof of concept. The ship parked itself on a suitable small planetoid and still awaits retrieval.
Caption: * 2108 C.E.
Seamus, in lower left panel, against a different space backdrop, a different ship rockets away from the Sol system.
Seamus: Twenty years after the first mission launched, a second, faster ship – the Enterprise – was sent forth – this one crewed by A.I.s but also containing 50 humans in stasis – bound for Epsilon Eridani, 10.5 light years away.
Seamus: It was expected to reach Epsi-Eri about the same time the first mission reached Rigel.
Two shot of Nicole and Seamus, in the room. Nicole looks interested.
Nicole: But they didn't make it.
Seamus: No. And one knows for certain why.
Seamus: Transmissions ceased when the craft was not quite six light-years out.
