Scott @ Austin Comic Con Oct 2014!
Hey kids! If you live in, or happen to be passing through Austin Texas this October, you need to check out the Austin Comic-Con. Scott will be making a quick dash over to Austin from his current digs in Houston to attend. He'll be in the artist alley drawing and chatting with fans. If you've been dying to meet the creator of Quantum Vibe and get his autograph, that'll be your best chance.
Austin Comic-Con is a Wizard World hosted event running Oct 2-3-4, 2014. And if getting to meet Scott isn't enough, there are a number of other comics and sci-fi celebrities in attendance like Matt Smith (Dr. Who), Morena Baccarin (Firefly and Homeland), and many, many more. Click on the link above for more details on the event and be sure to check back here for updates!
New Guide For Newbies
This week we return to brand new strips of Quantum Vibe. Yay!!! We pick up where Seamus is in the middle of having a major metaphorical bowel movement, when he hears a helpful voice via his cortical implant.
Last week's series of strips, Our Story Thus Far, is now easily access-able through our new guide for readers. Perfect for the reader who just heard about Quantum Vibe, but wants the Cliff's Notes version because she wants to catch up fast and join the adventure now! A handy link is positioned to the right of the page navigation buttons on the Quantum Vibe web site.
The Transcript For This Page
Just outside the air skin, 40 km above. The Pale Man is floating a foot away from the skin, and is igniting an acetylene-oxygen torch.
Caption: As Tobi regales his invited guests, the Security System monitors the doings of his uninvited guest, the Pale Man.
Using a suction-cup hand grip to anchor himself to the skin, the Pale Man uses the torch to cut through the air skin. (At this point he's only cut an inch or two.)
Caption: Modern air skins are made up of nano-scale filaments held in place by nanobots.
Caption (2): If a meteor or other object punches a hole in the air skin, the nanobots can regroup, repair the damage and seal the leak.
The Pale man has cut a gash almost three feet wide. We can see a sheet of pressuirzed atmosphere blowing out through the gash now.
Caption: The Little Prince's air skin is more sophisticated. If he wanted to, Tobi could order it to eat the intruder.
The Pale Man is now attempting to push himself through the gash but is having to fight the atmosphere rushing outward.
Caption: But Tobi is curious about what this fellow is up to, so he has ordered the nanobots to stand down for right now.
