Scott's List of Proud Patrons



Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]

He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.

THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.




Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]

QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)

Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Exterior shot of the Dejah Thoris, rocketing through space.
Caption: Aboard the Dejah Thoris, bound for Luna.
Nicole (from ship): This is zero magnification?
Seamus (from ship): I believe it is.
Panel 2
Another shot of space, focus is on two bright points close together, in the center of the field. We see Seamus' hand pointing at them.
Seamus: We're a third of the way there now.
Seamus: Terra and Luna can now be seen as two separate objects.
Panel 3
Establishing shot of Seamus and Nicole, seated at a small table. The wall beyond them is a wall-screen, showing a real-time view of space ahead of them.
Seamus: In a couple more days we'll be able to see them as discs rather than points of light.
Nicole: I've been thinking of going out to one of the lounges after dinner.
Panel 4
Looking past Nicole at Seamus, who brushes a lock of his hair away from his eye with a finger.
Seamus: Good. You need to learn how to deal with your situation, rather than ...
Seamus: Ffft. Stupid curls.
Nicole: If your hair bothers you why don't you cut it?
Panel 5
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus
Seamus: I need to find an anesthesiologist I can trust first.
Nicole: An anesthesiologist?
Panel 6
Two-shot of Seamus and Nicole, who's looking a bit disgusted.
Seamus: My botched rejuvenation has presented many odd problems, besides my giantism.
Seamus: For example, I can fart at will.
Panel 7
Medium close-up of Seamus, again brushing a lock out of his eye.
Seamus: But specific to your question, my scalp hair has, well, mutated.
Seamus: Each strand has a single, long nerve growing in the center.

Panel 8
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, who looks incredulous.
Nicole: You mean your hair hurts?
Seamus: Only when I try to cut it.
