IGG Campaign Concludes
A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Thanks again and click on, me hearties, click on.
Referral Contest Update #2
Update: Inked Drawing
We still can use your help getting more people to contribute to our campaign with a referral contest. The campaign backer whose referrals raise the most money for our campaign, will win a one-of-a-kind ink-on-paper drawing of Alyss, Hugo and Murphy, drawn and water-colored by QUANTUM VIBE creator Scott Bieser!
Here's an inked drawing of what you might win: Alyss, Hugo and Murphy enjoying a rare vacation on Nuveau Mo'orea. Click on the image to see a larger version (in a new tab or browser window - depends on your browser settings). Stay tuned for more reveals. The final result will be a unique creation a real QUANTUM VIBE fan would love to have.
You must have an IndieGogo account to participate. Go to this page for more info on how to participate. Don't delay and risk missing out on the chance of winning a one-of-a-kind piece of original art. The campaign ends, July 5th, 2021.
Strip 11 – All ashore
The Transcript For This Page
Large panel, ship at left approaching Ceres at right. Actually the Burner is backing towards the planetoid, engines slowing her velocity. The planetoid surface is essentially one giant frozen water-ocean, covered with a layer of dust, with several small, rocky islands protruding here and there. The icy surface is peppered with thousands of small, shallow craters, and criss-crossed with small ridges and cracks. See the Wikipedea page for Ceres for details. Some astronomers believe Ceres resembles the Saturnine moon Dione Although the dust layer would soften the outlines of the craters and ridges somewhat. The planetoid is less than 1,000km in diameter, but still large enough we don’t see structures on its surface at this distance. The ice is overed with a layer of dust perhaps a few cm thick – if we were rendering in color we might see a subtle red-ochre mottling effect.
Captain (from inside the Burner ship):
All hands, this is the Captain. Prepare for arrival at Ceres Spaceport, landing pad 3. Please secure all loose items.
Panels 2 and 3 should be same size, side-by-side
At the gangway to Landing Pad 3 (there should be a sign close-by) Guy and Fionella descend on an escalator. Guy looks exuberant, and is starting to take a step forward and downward from the escalator landing. (there should be a pair of vertical bars in the foreground, one on either side of the hatch opening)
Guy: Ms. Stellina, do you realize that you and I are going to make an entire world pays its fair share for the care for Terra's …
Same view, but now we only see Guy’s lower legs going up out of the panel frame.
Guy: … needy masses?
