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.

He has a camera on a strap around his neck and a Ceres Chamber of Commerce map in his hand. His stance should mark him as military, despite his costume.
A few uniformed soldiers are standing nearby, but they are moving away at Ed's approach.
Ed (thought): Could he be any more of a cliché?
Ed meanders around in front of the hotel, a few meters from the Target but not walking towards him.
Caption: Ed meandered in front of the hotel, waiting for a signal.
Medium shot of Ed, with the Hotel Cafe area sort of over his shoulder and to one side of him. We can see a very agitated-looking Rhonda among the soldiers there, all watching him.
Caption: Finally, Rhonda's increasingly obvious agitation forced him to zero in on his target.
Ed casually saunters up to the Target, who is looking confused.
Ed: Hi, friend, you look lost.
Ed: Let me help you find what you're looking for.
Target: I …
