Just In Time For Christmas?
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 Zazzle.com.
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
Re-establish the scene at the musical fountain. The Chinese toughs are closing in on Sajjan and his sisters, trying to paw at the girls, who are fending the toughs off, so far, by blocking and slapping hands away (Sikh girls are no cream-puffs). Sajjan is towering over everyone looking angry but not moving – yet.
Caption (Sajjan): 'The Chinese toughs were trying to uncover my sisters' hair and touch them .. uh, inappropriately.
Caption (Sajjan): 'You know I don't like to fight ...'
Snap back to the present, a two-shot of Robyn and Sajjan. Robyn is winking at Sajjan.Sajjan rolls his eyes.
Robyn: Like at your size you ever had to!
Sajjan: Yes, well anyway, I told them to stop ...
One of the Chinese boys directly confronts Sajjan, assuming some sort of 'martial arts' pose. The other Chinese boys are standing around laughing
Chinese gang leader: Or what? Are you going to punch me in the nose, Baby Huey?
Caption (Sajjan): Which was okay with me. You know, 'sticks and stones.'
The lead Chinese boy pulls the head-scarf from one of the Sikh girl's head. Sajjan looks enraged. Put an inset of current-Sajjan's head at the top and Robyn at the bottom of the panel, to identify their respective captions.
Caption (Sajjan): 'But then he pulled Safia's head covering off, so I ...'
Caption (Robyn): 'Punched him in the nose?'
A sort of mini-melee with Sajjan at the center; the Chinese youths are either punching or kicking at him, or getting knocked back hard as Sajjan defends himself.
Caption (Sajjan): 'Uh, yeah, something like that. Then they were all over me.
The aftermath: Sajjan is left standing, his clothes torn and skin a bit bruised but otherwise uninjured. The Chinese toughs are all on the ground around him, some holding hands over their noses, some with arms wrapped around broken ribs, one holding a broken leg, and one laying in the shallow water of the fountain behind him. The sisters are at the periphery of the scene, looking horrified.
Caption (Sajjan): 'In the end, they were all laying on the ground with broken noses, ribs, arms, and one leg, I think.
Caption (Sajjan): Actually, one of them wasn't on the ground; I threw him into the fountain.'
