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
Back at the girls' hotel room in Xin Rizhao. As with their first night on Huoxing, they are seated on the floor in a circle, empty wine cooler bottles around them. They're fairly tipsy.
Nicole: Then a week later he shows up at the apartment, like nothing happened.
Nicole: Walks right in and heads straight for the pantry.
Buford: Men are such dicks.
Panel 2
Buford and Nicole exchange glances as Ventura delivers her one-liner.
Ventura: Well, that's what they're FOR, isn't it?
Panel 3
Buford and Nicole roar with laughter as Ventura takes a triumphal swig of her wine cooler.
Buford & Nicole: BWAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
Panel 4
Nicole and Ventura.
Nicole: So, Ventura, y'got any good bad-boyfriend stories?
Ventura: Well, the only relationship I remember is with Po Xu-ke, and really, no complaints there ...

Panel 5
The girls are suddenly somber.
Ventura: Except of course, when he died.
Ventura: I'll never understand why he didn't go in for another rejuve.
Ventura: It's as if ... he just grew tired of living.


Panel 6
The girls react to the door chime. Buford starts to rise.
SFX: BrrDEEP-DEEP
Buford: I'll get it.
Nicole (thought): Saved by the bell.


Panel 7
Standing at the door, Buford touches a panel which makes a circle in the upper part of the door transparent. We can see Seamus (changed back to his normal clothes) standing on the other side, waiting patiently. Buford's head is turned back toward Nicole.
Buford: Hey Nicole, w-were yuh expectin' any mad scientists?
Nicole (OP): You mean Seamus? Let him in.

Panel 8
Nicole gets rather shakily to her feet as Seamus walks in, wearing a stern expression.
Nicole: Uh, hi boss, what's shakin'?
Seamus: Shit-faced or not, young lady, you have some explaining to do.
