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 panel, the scouts – and now Lili – surround Jim's limp form. They're removing his envirosuit. Their own helmets are gone, it's not clear where they are yet but it's not in the airlock. Libby and Emily and Robyn are close together, and Lili is farthest from Jim's head, positioned in a supervisory role.
One of the boys: Whoa, does this guy stink or what?
One of the girls: Phew!
Medium close-up on Lili, showing a couple of other scouts in the frame, looking sideways at her.
Lili: The lower air pressure pushed everything out of his gut into his suit.
Broader shot, taking in more of the scouts, and some more parts of Jim's pressure suit coming off, but at the moment all the scouts are laughing uproariously. We can see now they are back in the common area of the hab.
Lili: It's called vacuum diarrhea.
