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.

Suddenly, Buford drops to her knees, supporting herself on one arm while the other rests near her kidney.
Buford: Gaah! Feek!!

Buford: We Beltapes are designed for micrografity.
Close three-shot of Nicole, Buford and Ventura. The Beltape has an arm around each companion's shoulders.
Buford: Our backs don't do so well walking around t'e way you Standards do.
Buford: We can manage well enough in Luna's 1.6-graf field, but Huoxing's 3.7 grafs* put a lot of stress in the wrong places.
Nicole: I can relate to that.
