Quantum Vibe X 1000!
Today's (April 17, 2015) Quantum Vibe strip is the one thousandth strip of the Quantum Vibe saga. (This does not include the "Leap of Faith" guest strips, or the "Tales From The Front," "Our Story Thus Far" and other fillers which had pushed our total update count past 1,000 several weeks previously.)
Not many web-comics make it to the 1,000-strip milestone, and we thank our readers for staying with us through this epic story, especially those of you who have supported us with your purchases and donations. We would never have made it this far without you.
So, sit back and take in your place in history. Do you hear birds chirping? Drink deeply the sights, sounds, and smells of the moment. Or maybe have a drink. We have.
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.
The Transcript For This Page
Two-shot of Fiorella and Doris in the Split-Tail cabin.
Doris: So what is that thing, anyway?
Fiorella: Well, it looks like a Moai.
View of one of the monitors on the console, showing us for the first time what the asteroid looks like. It very strongly resembles one of the famous “Easter Island Head” carvings. We can see Fiorella's hand pointing to it.
Fiorella: Huge prehistoric carvings found on Easter Island, on Terra.
Fiorella: They look like what we saw, but a way lot smaller.
We see Doris in foreground right, looking thoughtfully at the monitor. In the background left Fiorella continues her mini-discourse.
Fiorella: Some people think the natives of Easter Island didn't have the technology to quarry, transport, carve and erect the Moai.
Doris: Then who do they think made them?
Medium shot of Fiorella, looking unsure of herself as she speaks.
Fiorella (quietly): Aliens.
