BHP Adds Digital Distribution [ Sep 29, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 1.1 -

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!

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 page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.

Again, thanks for reading!


The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Hari and Seamus walk down a hallway in Sharkisian's clinic.
Hari: So, did Dr. Sharkisian bring you up to speed on Nicole's situation?
Seamus: Mostly. She was arrested on some bogus charge and thrown into a dungeon.

Panel 2
Two-shot of Hari and Seamus.
Hari: That's the gist of it. I suspect that rat bastard Andrew Koak is behind this, but I can't prove it … yet.
Seamus: It could be Wayne Bobinardi with Gensaxwal. He's been dogging us since Mercury.

Panel 3
The two men pause outside a doorway.
Hari: Well, whoever it is, I've got Antigone Stone on the case.
Seamus: Good choice. She already has the background she’ll need to sort this out.
Panel 4
Two-shot of Hari and Seamus, who is grinning an evil grin.
Hari: Too bad that mystery android got away. We could've learned something from him.
Seamus: I doubt it, but it would've been fun trying.
