BHP Adds Digital Distribution [ Sep 29, 2015 ]
That's right, Big Head Press has signed up with DriveThru Comics to begin distributing high quality digital copies of stories from the BHP catalog. Delivered as a 150 pixels per inch (ppi) PDF file, each digital book provides you a much higher resolution story viewing experience, whether on your smartphone, tablet or computer monitor.
(Not to mention, of course, you can keep the story on your own gadget(s) for convenient off-line viewing.)
Over the coming weeks and months, we will be releasing a new digital book each week. The first title of our catalog we are making available is the very first Escape From Terra story, World Ceres. Originally the leading story in the volume 1 print edition, we are making it available as a standalone hi-rez digital volume 1.1 at the very low price of $3.25(US). Each week, we will be offering more Escape From Terra stories in similarly sized hi-rez digital books until we complete the series.
So, get your DriveThru Comics account today and stand by for more digital book announcements!
The Transcript For This Page
Nicole and Buford are both on the exercycles when a guard approaches them.
Guard: Oresme, you have another visitor.
Nicole: Already? Do you know who it is?
The guard has done an about-face and, with a sneer, is gesturing for Nicole to follow him. She is dismounting her exercycle in a hurry.
Guard: Do I look like your social secretary?
Guard: Come with me or I'll tell whoever it is you've refused the visit.
Nicole: Okay okay!
In the visitor's room, Nicole is looking at a new, different middle-aged man, this one clean-shaven, with a long chin.
Visitor: Good afternoon, Ms. Oresme, my name is George A. Ringo.
Visitor: Hari Copperton asked me to be your attorney, if you'll agree.
Looking past George at Nicole, who is looking skeptical.
Nicole: Please don't take this personally, Mr. Ringo, but I've already had to deal with an agent of my employer's adversaries claiming to represent me ...
George: I understand completely.
Looking past Nicole at George.
George: That's why Hari told me to tell you this:
George: At dinner, you had pork loin salad with date vinaigrette, but didn't care much for the anchovies.
Split panel -- in the first half, close-up of Nicole still looking skeptical. In the second half, she's smiling.
Nicole: I hereby consent to your representing me, Mr. Ringo.
George (OP): You can call me George if you want.
Nicole and George, side views, separated by the window.
Nicole: Okay, George, I've been wondering just how private these visits are?
George: Oh, you can safely assume everything's being recorded by your jailers.
Cut to the listening room where the cops are looking really annoyed.
George (OP): They can't use anything they learn here in court, though, because the recording is supposed to be illegal.
Nicole (OP): Then why do they do it?
George (OP): They can't seem to control their urge to snoop, I guess.
