Get Your EFT v3.1! [ Nov 23, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 3.1 - The King & I: Mars / Space Scouts

So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.

Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.

The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

EFT v2.4 Now @ DriveThru! [ Nov 16, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 2.4 - The Christmas War

They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.

Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terra’s own bloody history which might avoid the horror of war. And if there is, what resistance might there be from those who crave the battlefield?

These questions are answered and more in 40 pages of “The Christmas War”.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
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?
Panel 2
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!
Panel 3
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.
Panel 4
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.
Panel 5
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.
Panel 6
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.
Panel 7
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.

Panel 8
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.
