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
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.
