Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]

He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.

THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.




Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]

QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)

Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
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.

Panel 2
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.

Panel 3
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.

Panel 4
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.
