Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

A Short Break For the Holidays [ Dec 20, 2018 ]

Hey gang, it's that time of the year again when folks step away from their computers and enjoy family and friends. We'll be doing that here at Big Head Press too.

Quantum Vibe will be update free next week. But never fear, we'll have 3 new strips the first week of the year starting Wednesday, January 2nd 2019.

Any of our U.S. readers wishing to purchase Big Head Press titles via Paypal for direct shipping, if you place your order after Saturday December 22nd, it will ship after new year's day. We will work to get them out as quickly as we can after we return.

We at Big Head Press would also like to thank all our readers for their support and wish you all safe and happy holidays.




About the Patreon Contretemps [ Dec 18, 2018 ]

Scott here.

Patreon's recent moves to de-platform some popular YouTube personalities who have upset a censorious subset of progressives has alarmed all of us who value an ethic of open discussion, even when opinions expressed are sometimes quite difficult to tolerate. Maybe especially then.

I have had several Patrons drop out of the system and ask me to set up an account with an alternative subscriber service. However, there seems to be a Twitter-based activist group of "Social Justice Warriors" which can attack and shut down alternative services lest they become a haven for the wrong crowd. Maker-Support and SubscribeStar have both fallen victim to these racketeers.

Now, I know that some of my readers are here because they like my politics, but many others don't care about the politics but enjoy the stories. And all of you are important to me. But some of you want an alternative subscription service and I am open to any such that seems able to withstand assaults from the Blue Meanies. I have word of such a system in the works and will adopt it quickly if it pans out.

I'm also following Minds.com and Steamit.com, which offer a means for people to support creators, but they deal in crypto-currencies, which at present are not as easy for most people to deal with as their national currencies. But new innovations may change this, so I haven't written them off either.

In the meanwhile, I'm sticking with Patreon, out of financial necessity. If and when I make a move to either add an alternate service or replace Patreon, I will announce it here and elsewhere. And I understand those of you who cannot bring yourselves to consider supporting me through Patreon and will happily welcome you back when I can offer you a better choice.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!


 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Diana awakens supine in what looks like an overstuffed recliner. The recliner is in what looks like a bedroom. Her right forearm is in a high-tech cast, she doesn't have her jacket on but her Anysuit is still projecting the clothing style from earlier.
Caption: I don't remember being hauled out of the flyer, or moved up to the house. But it must have happened.
Caption: Because I awakened in the most comfortable chair in the Universe.
Caption: I mean, seriously. My first thought was I'd somehow arrived in paradise.
Panel 2
She looks past the foot of her bed and sees Otto Sullivan, carrying a tray with a tumbler and a small bowl. He has a big smile on his face.
Caption: But then I saw Otto Sullivan.
Caption: Poor Otto. It was obvious he had a crush on me.
Caption: And of course I was absolutely not interested.
Panel 3
Otto is at the left bedside, handing Diana the glass from the tray, which is suspended above Diana's lap. The recliner has declined so that she's in more of a seated position.
Caption: But he was such a sweet kid. And, I might have been his first crush.
Caption: Not to mention, if I hoped gain refuge in this household I needed to be polite.
Panel 4
Diana sips on her drink, looking over her glass at Otto, tho stands there yapping like a fool.
Caption: So I sat and listened to him tell he his life story.
Caption: All 14 years of it.
Caption: He could remember a lot of trivial details, I'll give him that.
