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
Wide shot of some of the teens rigging their hammocks. In the foreground, silhouetted, we see an arm extending from the side of each panel, clasping hands. The arms belong to Ernie and Lili.
Caption: Bunking the kids in the common area was Lili's idea.
Caption: She told Ernie she knew about boys and girls.
Smallish panel, close 2-shot of Ernie and Lili, looking sideways at each other with knowing smiles. (Ernie can be standing behind Lili and a bit to one side, to get them close in the frame.)
Caption: Lili and Ernie, however, snuggled up in the Captain's cabin.
Wide shot of the captain's cabin. Lily is laying supine on the bed, propped up on her elbows, looking coquettish. Ernie is pulling off his clothes as fast as he can.
Caption: Rank hath its privileges.
Caption: Lili took the opportunity, once again, to demonstrate to Ernie her knowledge about boys and girls.
Caption: It happened every time they got together.
Caption: Different life choices didn't allow Ernie and Lili to live together, but the attraction was always there – always like the first time.
