Quantum Vibe X 1000! [ Apr 17, 2015 ]
Today's (April 17, 2015) Quantum Vibe strip is the one thousandth strip of the Quantum Vibe saga. (This does not include the "Leap of Faith" guest strips, or the "Tales From The Front," "Our Story Thus Far" and other fillers which had pushed our total update count past 1,000 several weeks previously.)
Not many web-comics make it to the 1,000-strip milestone, and we thank our readers for staying with us through this epic story, especially those of you who have supported us with your purchases and donations. We would never have made it this far without you.
So, sit back and take in your place in history. Do you hear birds chirping? Drink deeply the sights, sounds, and smells of the moment. Or maybe have a drink. We have.
New Colorist [ Jan 15, 2015 ]
We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.
The Transcript For This Page
Nicole, Buford and Ventura enter a large building under a sign reading (in both languages) "TUBE STATION"
Buford: Why don't we take our limo to Xin Rizhao?
Nicole: Because I had to send it back to the Po estate for Seamus to use.
Nicole: Besides, this should be interesting.
The trio stands in a short queue before a ticket kiosk.
Buford: Is t'at 'interesting' as in, 'oh, cool,' or as in, 'oh, crat'?
Nicole: Well, I _think_ it will be cool.
At the ticket kiosk, Nicole peers at the monitor listing fares, and puts some dime-sized coins into the receptacle..
Nicole: Hm. Three fares to Xin Rizhao, comes to 4 yinke.
Ventura: Do you need me to go with you? You could return me to the rental shop.
The trio walks away from the ticket counter, Nicole, holding a small plastic fob, blushes a bit as she answers Ventura.
Nicole: Well, Seamus paid for three days, so we should get his money's worth.
Nicole: And besides, we may have to stay overnight and ... I might have nightmares again.
