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
An observation deck on the side of one of the central towers in Aldrinopolis. A tall, broad-shouldered man leans on the rail, gazing out at the city. We'll call him 'Rando,' because that's his name. He doesn't seem to react to the voice that calls from behind him, OP. We'll call the owner of that voice 'Bill,' at least for now.
Bill (OP): Sorry I'm late, got stuck in traffic.
Rando: Yeh, Ai can see three jammups frum heer, geez.
Bill walks up beside Rando, a half-meter away. Bill is also tall, but barrel-chested. He has a strong jawline but seems just on the verge of being jowly. His hair is light brown, his eyes are a bit too small, his nose is a bit bulbous at the tip.
Rando looks Mediterranean, not as dark as Nicole, but with thick, black hair and the kind of eyes women go for, and a closely-trimmed goatee.
Bill: Hope you can modulate your mouth to society standard, Greene.
Bill: Loonie-speak won't do for the upper-class targets we have this time.
Bill holds up a calf-skinned, gloved hand between himself and Rando, with index finger pointed upward. A rectangle containing images of Nicole and Seamus appears to balance on his fingertip. Rando looks at it closely.
Bill: A crazy old coot with a glandular problem who's also a science wiz is onto some kind of potentially huge breakthrough, and my friends want to know what he's up to.
Another angle two-shot on Bill and Rando. Rando smiles big.
Bill: I'll deal with the crazy old coot, you get the cute young assistant who's with him.
Rando: You're a gentleman and a scholar, Mr. Graves.
