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!
The Transcript For This Page
Aerial view of 26th-Century Brussels. The city should be vaguely recognizable from today but also have various newer structures, traffic-ways, etc. A thin haze permeates the lower levels.
Caption: Brussels, European District.
Caption: Commercial capital of Western Terra.
Voice (from somewhere in city): How long will you be gone this time?
The luxurious bedroom of Wayne Bobinardi. Wayne is overseeing the packing of his luggage, which is being done by an android servant. Also in the room is Alissa, Wayne's wife. Wayne is tall, tan, broad-shouldered, greying at the temples. Alissa is of Armenian descent and still retains much of her youthful glamour.
Wayne: Depends on how things go, Alissa. Anywhere from two weeks to several months.
Two-shot of Wayne and Alissa.
Alissa: Wayne, Jack will be graduating in May.
Wayne: Excellent. Boston University is a great admin school.
Alissa looks at Wayne scornfully. Wayne is slightly embarrassed by his gaffe.
Alissa: Jack couldn't get in to Boston, remember? He's been at Van Rompuy Politek for three years now.
Wayne: Oh! Uh, that's right, how silly of me.
The android servant has completed packing the large bag. Wayne opens the smaller case.
Wayne: Thank you, Cleo, I will pack my own toiletries kit.
Servant: Yes, Sir.
Alissa: It would mean a lot to Jack if you could attend the ceremony.
Wayne has moved into the adjacent bathroom, is gathering up shaving gear etc for his kit.
Wayne: If time permits, I would be delighted.
Alissa: Can't you make the time? Jack really looks up to you.
Wayne turns to face Alissa, gently placing a finger under her chin and looking at her levelly.
Wayne: My wife, we have often had this conversation.
Wayne: The needs of the Mercorp outweigh the needs of its officers.
Alissa: Or their families, yes, I know.
Toiletries kit assembled, Wayne walks out of the bathroom with his wife following in his wake. He glances back at her with some annoyance.
Alissa: My parents were also officers.
Alissa: But what is the great Mercorrp GENSAXWAL to a boy who needs his father?
