A personal message from the cartoonist: [ Aug 31, 2015 ]
Hey everyone, I really appreciate all my readers, new and long-standing, who enjoy reading my fanciful stories. Even though only a small percentage of you buy the printed volumes. I understand, times are tough. Yesterday I saw a pimp driving an old Honda Civic.
That said, I still need to pay rent, keep the lights on, and feed myself and my disabled child.
Maintaining a 5-day-per-week schedule on this strip is a full-time job, even with the help of a hired colorist. Advertising, book sales and sporadic donations help support me but to put it plainly, after the death of my wife I need more income to keep the strip going. I've been supplementing my income with savings which will run out next year if I don't bring in more dough. So, I've turned to Patreon.
Patreon is a website that was originally created for musicians who distribute work on-line but also works for authors and artists in the new Internet world. If you like the strip and want it to continue updating more than one or two days per week, please become a patron, donating anywhere from one dollar per month upwards through my Patreon page. Just click on the Patreon button below the comic on the quantumvibe.com page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.
Again, thanks for reading!

The Transcript For This Page
Rando Greene is sitting at a table at a sidewalk cafe. We can see a sign 'Cafe de Quark' nearby. Rando is reading something on a pop-up holoscreen.
Medium shot of Rando, from the POV of someone standing on the other side of his table. He's looking up at his interlocutor.
Voice: Mr. Greene, please pardon the intrusion ...
Looking over Rando's shoulder at the interlocutor. It's a tall, tanned woman with flowing blonde hair, and she is dressed to kill.
Woman: ... but I'm in need of a publicist and my friend referred me to you.
Rando: Ah ... please have a seat, Ms -?
The woman is now seated across the small table from Rando.
Woman: Paula Steele. I'm an actress, and I sing a little. I was referred by Obie Carlson, my manager.
Rando: Oh yeah, Obie. Why didn't he call to set up an appointment?
Full two-shot of Rando and Steele. We can see her playing footsie with him under the table.
Steele: He's, um, busy with some kind of legal issue. And I thought it best to meet you in person.
Steele: To find out if you're as ... good as Obie says you are.
Looking over Steele's shoulder at Rando. He's looking interested.
Rando: Oh, Obie has no idea how good I am.
Rando: So, tell me a little about your, um, professional background.
Close-shot under the table, in Steele's lap. She's got a device about the size and shape of a thumb drive and is pointing it towards Rando.
Steele: Well, I studied at the Mulberry Academy, and have had speaking roles in a dozen A-Trade shows, including three musicals.
Steele: I'd like to show you my portfolio. Can we go to your office?
Steele and Greene arise from the table, Rando dabs a napkin at his mouth, having finished his breakfast. Steele is all smiles.
Rando: Sure, it's not far. But I hope you don't mind that it's a home-office.
Rando: I like to keep my overhead low.
Steele: I don't mind at all.
