Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]

Big Head Press Supply Store - Mugs, T-Shirts, Posters & More...

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!



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Seamus, Nicole, Ventura and Buford are again walking along a city street. Buford is loudly blowing her nose into a handkerchief someone has provided.
Buford: HONK!
Nicole: How could Buford be sick? She checked out fine at L-5 City and had all her vaccs.

Panel 2
Two-shot of Nicole and Seamus, walking along.
Seamus: It's possible a new strain has developed which is immune to our prophylactics.
Seamus: But given the season, I think it more likely this is an allergy.

Panel 3
Another 2-shot of Nicole and Seamus, showing a bit of city skyline
Nicole: Season? Allergy?
Seamus: Up to now you and Buford have only experienced closed, filtered environments.
Seamus: But Huoxing has a natural ecosystem, derived from Terra's.

Panel 4
Four-shot of Buford, Nicole, Ventura, Seamus (maybe a vignette). Buford is sneezing again.
Seamus: Suffice to say, at certain times of the year various plants and fungi generate trillions of airborne spores and pollen grains ...
Buford: ut-CHOO!!!
Seamus: Which plague certain unfortunates whose mucous membranes are sensitive to them.


Panel 5
The quartet approaches the entrance to an apothecary shop.
Buford: Wait, is this the Apothecary's? How did you find it so easily?
Nicole: His implant.
Nicole: He called up a local directory from the Network and got directions.

Panel 6
Inside the shop, the quartet passes by some display shelves full of various nostrums.
Seamus: If you'll put your visor on, that and your earpiece will give you a similar capability.
Buford: I hate that visor -- it makes me look stupid.

Panel 7
Seamus is now standing at a counter, behind which is a female Huoxingian of Han extraction. Buford is right behind him, holding a small box of something.
Seamus:
Buford: Hey, what about this?

Panel 8
The apothecary doesn't quite suppress a giggle as she looks at the box. Buford is chagrined, Seamus and Nicole are grinning.
Shopkeeper: {hee-hee}
Buford: What?
Nicole: The visor's real-time translations help you NOT look stupid.
