Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY!
He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.
THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.
Kudos from David Brin
QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)
Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.
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.
