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

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

Strip 10 -- Turnaround

Panel 1
Establishing shot of the Burner arcing through space. Leave room for EFT logo.

Guy: (from inside ship) Ms. Stellina, I am certain that ever since our encounter with that insolent – handcuff monger – there’s something different about my food.

Panel 2
Inside Guy’s 'cabin.' It’s actually a cramped little 2.5m x 2m x 1.5m alcove with a sliding fabric door across the open face. Guy is sitting cross-legged on his bunk, picking absently at a tray of food in front of him, looking annoyed as usual. Fiorella is seated on a small desk facing the foot of the bunk. (There is no chair, one would sit on the bunk while working at the desk.) Trying to cheer him up.

Fiorella: Well, I did scan it. Nothing poisonous, but they seem to have left out any spices. You can have my food if you like, it tastes wonderful.

Guy: Perish the thought. I will endure this insult, and deal with these jokers later.

Panel 3

Focus on Fiorella with chin on knuckles, gazing thoughtfully at Guy, who we see a bit of from behind at the right edge of the frame.

Fiorella: I wonder how the Cerereans will react to us?

Fiorella 2: What do you know about Ceres?

Panel 4

Focus on Guy, picking at his plate, regaining his usual annoyed expression, not looking back at Fiorella.

Guy: They’re getting rich and not paying their share. I’ve got all the numbers in my PDA. That’s all I need to know.

Panel 5
Two-shot of Guy and Fiorella, at a very awkward-looking upside-down angle. Should be as disorienting as you can make it. Fiorella looks unconcerned, Guy is visibly nauseated.

Guy: Fiorella ….

Guy 2: I think I’m going to be sick.

Fiorella: Relax, Guy.

Panel 6

Looking at Fiorella from Guy’s POV. She sitting there talking like nothing’s wrong but there seems to be a spiral warp effect distorting her and the wall behind her.

Fiorella: It’s Turnaround. Your inner ear is reacting to the Burner’s rotation as we flip ends.

Fiorella 2: Be glad they did it under power instead of cutting engines.

Panel 7
Looking at the outer side of the fabric door, listening in.

Fiorella: Zero G would have been a lot worse on your ….
