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 ponds are in a glade surrounded by tall bamboo stalks.
Rosenberg: Hello, I am Pablo Rosenberg.
Rosenberg: Your seconds have retained me to officiate at your duel.
Rosenberg: Are you ready to get started, Sv LeBoeuf?
Pierre is touching the hilt of his sword. Angle the shot so that the sword and the gesture are prominent in the frame. We see Rosenberg in the background, who is noting the sword.
Rosenberg: You won't be needing that, sov.
Rosenberg: Under the Common Code Duello of the Belt and Other Human Space, the person challenged has choice of weapons and field.
Looking over Rosenberg's shoulder at Pierre. Pierre is looking surprised.
Pierre: Well, Mr. Rosenberg, I had assumed ...
Rosenberg: 'Sv Rosenberg,' please. The weapons chosen by Sv Freeman are a pair of three-kilo blacksmith hammers, one for each hand, in ...
Two-shot of Pierre and Guy. Now Pierre looks shocked. Guy is giving his cousin a bemused glance.
Pierre: What! That is not fair!
Pierre: It is barbaric and I have no experience with hammers as weapons!
