Just In Time For Christmas? [ Dec 10, 2017 ]
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!
New Quantum Vibe Starts Monday! [ Dec 1, 2017 ]
Just a heads-up QV fans, new strips for QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périlieu start their run on Monday, December 4th!.
This time around you will notice a slight change in format. Instead of 3 panel strips, Monday through Friday, we are switching to 4 panel strips, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This move helps with meeting monthly budget requirements for producing this fine story, as well as provide a better story telling in each strip byd adding the extra panel.
We hope you enjoy the new format. Don't forget to click the ad links on our site and if you are enjoying this slightly mad sci-fi adventure do please click over to our store and purchase some copies (both in print and digital formats). That's what allows us to keep telling the Quantum Vibe story.
The Transcript For This Page
Exterior view of the Transport Ship El-Kady, accelerating on ion drive, with Huoxing a very small disk in the background. The ship is roughly bullet-shaped, with six external pods arrayed around its wider section.
Caption: The Transport Ship El-Kady, two days out from Huoxing.
Cut to interior of the El-Kady -- a curved corridor lined with rounded-coffin-like pods, amidst a web a tubing. Lighting is low, just bright enough to see. The pods have little windows on the top -- sort of like the hibernation pods on the spaceship Discovery in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Closer shot of one of the pods. We see a lighted panel on the side identifying this as Seamus o'Murchadha's pod, and can barely make out Seamus' sleeping face through the window.
Moving along, we can see Nicole's face in the next pod, and beyond that, a cubby-hole in which a female figure sits.
Cut to the same corridor, but two days earlier. The lights are brighter. Seamus, Nicole, Buford and Murphy are approaching the now-open pods.
Caption: Two days earlier:
Seamus: I believe that one is Nicole's, this one is mine, and Buford's is across the corridor from Nicole's.
Nicole: Do we really have to travel this way?
Three-shot of Seamus, Nicole, Buford. Seamus looks a bit irritated, the two girls look abashed.
Seamus: The next cruise liner to Vesta does not depart for another 14 days.
Seamus: Our schedule cannot permit that delay, and besides we really ought to get clear of Huoxing as quickly as possible.
Seamus: Need I explain why?
Medium close-up on Nicole, looking embarrassed to admit her weakness.
Nicole: It's not that I expect luxury on every flight, but ... I've been having trouble with sleeping, since Luna.
Nicole: I ... I get nightmares sometimes, and I really don't want one I can't wake up from for 34 days.
Seamus lays a reassuring hand on Nicole's shoulder. Buford and Murphy look on sympathetically.
Seamus: I've done this many times -- the sleep is dreamless, I assure you.
Seamus: Now, let's get a move on. They must vacuum this section before departure.
