Quantum Vibe X 1000! [ Apr 17, 2015 ]
Today's (April 17, 2015) Quantum Vibe strip is the one thousandth strip of the Quantum Vibe saga. (This does not include the "Leap of Faith" guest strips, or the "Tales From The Front," "Our Story Thus Far" and other fillers which had pushed our total update count past 1,000 several weeks previously.)
Not many web-comics make it to the 1,000-strip milestone, and we thank our readers for staying with us through this epic story, especially those of you who have supported us with your purchases and donations. We would never have made it this far without you.
So, sit back and take in your place in history. Do you hear birds chirping? Drink deeply the sights, sounds, and smells of the moment. Or maybe have a drink. We have.
New Colorist [ Jan 15, 2015 ]
We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.
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.
