Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
A personal message from the cartoonist:
Hey everyone, I really appreciate all my readers, new and long-standing, who enjoy reading my fanciful stories. Even though only a small percentage of you buy the printed volumes. I understand, times are tough. Yesterday I saw a pimp driving an old Honda Civic.
That said, I still need to pay rent, keep the lights on, and feed myself and my disabled child.
Maintaining a 5-day-per-week schedule on this strip is a full-time job, even with the help of a hired colorist. Advertising, book sales and sporadic donations help support me but to put it plainly, after the death of my wife I need more income to keep the strip going. I've been supplementing my income with savings which will run out next year if I don't bring in more dough. So, I've turned to Patreon.
Patreon is a website that was originally created for musicians who distribute work on-line but also works for authors and artists in the new Internet world. If you like the strip and want it to continue updating more than one or two days per week, please become a patron, donating anywhere from one dollar per month upwards through my Patreon page. Just click on the Patreon button below the comic on the quantumvibe.com page, and you can view my cheesy video and read about the incentives and milestones.
Again, thanks for reading!

The Transcript For This Page
Pierre and Guy now approach Rosenberg, who greets them. Henry and Suki stand a few meters farther back. Sherwood stands by. Henry and Suki stand near the largest of seven circular koi ponds, six smaller ones spaced evenly around the larger one, which is about seven meters in diameter. 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 ...

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!
