We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.
And We Are Back!
Quantum Vibe returns this week. So you thought exploding in the rings of Saturn would slow our intrepid heroines down? And what in the world is going to happen to Seamus? These questions and more will be answered in the upcoming daily strips of Quantum Vibe.
We at Big Head Press also hoped you enjoyed our guest story installment "Leap of Faith" by Mike Baron and Lee Oaks! A short story set in the Quantum Vibe universe telling the tale of a woman and how hard it can still be to get by in the solar system.
The Transcript For This Page
Escape From Terra is approaching its 1,000th srip. That represents the better part of four years of five weekly strips. During that time, EFT has nearly always been listed as one of the top 100 most favorite web comics. Wow! We could not have done it without you. You took time out of your life to vote for us and we appreciate it. Thank you readers. We have really enjoyed bringing the EFT universe, and its characters, to life for you.
However... Big Head Press has decided that in the current economy, it will have to concentrate its resources and efforts on Quantum Vibe. The EFT team accepts this and we continue to have the highest respect for Big Head Press for their support and cooperation over the years. Nevertheless, EFT will be comming to an end... or will it?
The EFT team, with the full cooperation of Big Head Press, is looking for a new home for EFT. Big Head has graciously agreed to continue the EFT forum during our search. New stories are not a problem. We have several finished, plus dozens of blocked-out new stories and hundreds of themes and ideas for years of entertainment.
What we need is a new venue. Currently, we are in discussions with a traditional comic publisher about offering EFT as a monthly "comic book". These are the comics some of us grew up on, so we find the idea intriguing. In addition, we are exploring the possibility of offering a portable EFT app for smartphones. We might even offer EFT books internationally in various languages. There are many possibilities.
It also occurs to us that we have the brightest and cleverest readers inthe world. So we would like to solicit your suggestions as t the best way to keep EFT alive and available. Please go to the EFT forum

P.S. If you would like to be notified about EFT plans and opportunities, please get on our mailing list. We will be setting up something a bit more sophisticated, but for now, just send Sandy an email (email@example.com
) with EFT Mailing List in the subject line and we will put you on the list.
