-- First Seen: 2011-11-04
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
Re-establish the scene: Guy, Pierre, Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry, Suki, the koi ponds (which are now very important), the bambo beyond.
Rosenberg: Please, Sv LeBoeuf! I have not finished.
Rosenberg: The field of combat is in the central koi pond, immediately behind me.
Medium close-up on Pierre, looking shocked.
Pierre: What! Uh … how deep is it?
Sherwood steps forward to answer Pierre's question. Include Pierre and Rosenberg in the shot, with Henry and Suki behind him. Sherwood, Rosenberg, Henry and Suki are grinning.
Sherwood: It varies between about 160 and 165 centimeters.
Medium shot of Pierre, about to blow his stack. Guy, also grinning, stands by.
Pierre: But, that's nearly to the top of my head!
Pierre: This pédé would have the advantage! That is not fair!
Medium close-up of Rosenberg, smiling a bit as he speaks. Leave plenty of room for the dialog.
Rosenberg: But fighting with swords would have given you a clear advantage over Sv Freeman.
Rosenberg: You had no problem with that, did you?
Rosenberg: Yet, you complain if the circumstances favor your opponent.
Two-shot of Rosenberg and Pierre. Pierre can barely contain his rage.
Rosenberg: Sv LeBoeuf, you have two choices.
Rosenberg: Swim – or sleep – with the fishes or abandon your challenge. Which shall it be?
Pierre, his face very red, stalks away from the group, towards the right side of the panel. In the middle ground, Guy addresses the group. He is partly turned so that we can see him grinning. The rest of the group is all smiles.
Guy: As Second for Sv Pierre LeBoeuf, I hereby abandon his challenge to Sv Freeman.
