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!
New Quantum Vibe Starts Monday! [ Dec 1, 2017 ]
Just a heads-up QV fans, new strips for QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlieu start their run on Monday, December 4th!.
This time around you will notice a slight change in format. Instead of 3 panel strips, Monday through Friday, we are switching to 4 panel strips, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This move helps with meeting monthly budget requirements for producing this fine story, as well as provide a better story telling in each strip byd adding the extra panel.
We hope you enjoy the new format. Don't forget to click the ad links on our site and if you are enjoying this slightly mad sci-fi adventure do please click over to our store and purchase some copies (both in print and digital formats). That's what allows us to keep telling the Quantum Vibe story.
The Transcript For This Page
Cut to: The outskirts of Aldrinopolis, during day/gloom, a police cruiser soars over the edge-city-scape. There are two cops inside.
Voice from in cruiser: Busted two pay-grades and banished to the outer suburbs! Is this what they call justice?
Other voice: AI CAME VRY CLOSE 2 JUS TURNIN IN MAH BADGE, U KNOE.
Interior of the cruiser, we see it is the same two cops who busted Nicole way back around strip 310.
Female cop: Oh, really? And what would you do for a living?
Male cop: YA, THAZ TEH CONSIDERASHUN DAT STOPPD ME. THAR ISNT ANOTHR JOB DAT SUITS ME BETTR THAN DIS WAN.
Same shot, now the male cop is suddenly alerted to something going on outside.
Female cop: Same here -- also, the police pension is just too sweet a deal to walk away from.
Male cop: I GUES WELL JUS HAS 2 -- HAY, WUT WUZ DAT?
Exterior: Someone in a Bubb swoops and loops around them, practically taunting the cops. We can see a figure riding in it but can't make out who it is.
Female cop: Another joy-rider in a damn Bubb!
Male cop: LETS NAIL DIS TRAFFIC-TERRORIST!
The Bubb straightens its course and soars skyward, leading the cruiser high over the city outskirts.
Female: How high can those Bubbs go?
Male: IM GONNA KATCH HIM BEFORE HE FINDZ OUT.
The Bubb suddenly loops back and alights atop one of the cruiser's impeller-intakes, instantly destabilizing it. We can see its occupant now -- a dummy made up to look like Nicole. The cops panic.
Male: O FUCK!
Female: Get it off! Get it off!
The cruiser plummets thousands of meters in a spiral.
Male: AI CANT!
Female: Then we're going to die!
Cut to: Seamus' stateroom on the cruiser going to Mars. He's sitting in a reclining chair, with his feet up, his head supported, hands across his belly, smiling contentedly. From the doorway, Buford and Nicole peer in at him curiously.
Caption: Five million kilometers away:
Buford: Is he sleeping or in deep concentration?
Nicole: That smile suggests he's having a sexy dream -- better leave him be.
