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.

Ventura (who is a lot stronger than she looks) is helping Buford to her feet.
Buford: Didja efer wonder why a lot more Beltapes migrate to Luna rat'er'n Huoxing?
Nicole: I never thought about it, but now that you mention it ... why?
Buford: We Beltapes are designed for micrografity.

Panel 4

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.
