Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
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.
And We Are Back!
Quantum Vibe returns this week. So you thought exploding in the rings of Saturn would slow our intrepid heroines down? And what in the world is going to happen to Seamus? These questions and more will be answered in the upcoming daily strips of Quantum Vibe.
We at Big Head Press also hoped you enjoyed our guest story installment "Leap of Faith" by Mike Baron and Lee Oaks! A short story set in the Quantum Vibe universe telling the tale of a woman and how hard it can still be to get by in the solar system.
The Transcript For This Page
We are in a medium-sized private room, looking up from a position a bit less than a meter above the floor. We can see Captain Chang, looking down at us expectantly, with a soft smile.
Chang: Other than that, Sv Turner, how did you like the show?
Swing around and pull back to reveal the whole scene. Chang is standing beside a bed on which Ed is resting. Bedsheets are pulled up to his chest, he's wearing a soft cotton shirt. A couple of tubes are running from under those sheets to some sort of high-tech device, about the size of a loaf of bread, resting on a shelf built into the bed's headboard. Ed is smiling. The bed is adjustable, like a hospital bed, but otherwise the room looks like an ordinary bedroom.
Chang: I'm really sorry she shot you, Ed.
Ed: No problem, Pardner. It was only a flesh wound.
Medium shot of Chang, looking pained and regretful.
Chang: She drilled you through the heart, Ed. You died.
Medium shot of Ed, smiling sardonically.
Ed: Yeah, but it didn't take.
Ed: They slapped me in the emergency autodoc with time to spare.
