Strip 370 -- First Seen: 2010-02-12
Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.
Staple! This weekend! Yikes!
Yikes! We almost forgot to tell visitors to the Quantum Vibe page that Scott will be making an appearance at Staple! the indie comics expo, in Austin, Texas this coming weekend, October 12-13.
Scott will be premiering his latest collection of Quantum Vibe strips, QUANTUM VIBE: Château Périllieu. Exclusively available at this show! The trade-paperback will go on sale in other channels soon afterwards.
Sorry for the late notice, hope to see readers there.
Château Périlleux may have concluded, but Quantum Vibe continues. We're taking a short break, but we will be back in a few weeks with new story. In the meantime, be sure to check back each Monday as we'll have a "break" strip for you to enjoy with announcements about the upcoming Quantum Vibe stories among other things. See ya!
The Transcript For This Page
We are back at Arana Awatere's theme park. Doris and Fiorella are just leaving Arana's office after their conference. They are moving along a corridor, pulling themselves along in zero-gee via hand-grips in the walls. Buzz is flying along ahead of them.
Doris: So Arana told us to 'get out there and enjoy' ourselves.
Doris: I don't know about you, but I'd like to get a few hours of sleep before we sally forth.
They continue along the corridor. We see them passing an intersection.
Fiorella: No argument from me.
Fiorella: Buzz, is there someplace we can sleep for a bit?
The girls pause, eyes widening, as Buzz turns to answer them.
Buzz: Yes, Fiorella. Arana has put the presidential suite at your disposal.
Same shot. The girls cast sideways glances at each other as Buzz turns to lead the way.
Buzz: Please follow me.
Very large panel, taking entire remainder of page. Allow space for a small inset Panel 6 in the lower right.
Buzz leads the girls into a hangar, filled with a variety of fanciful flying passenger vehicles. Included are a mechanical winged horse, a 2/3-scale model of Baron von Richtofen's red tri-plane ('the bloody Red Baron'), the Wright Brother's plane, the Apollo lunar lander, a flying carpet, a flying saucer, a convincing 'magic cloud,' something that looks like a giant version of Buzz with 'Buzz Bomb' stenciled on the side,and if there's room, any other fanciful conveyance you can think of.
This is a zero-gee area, full of handrails to assist in human movement. The room is hexagonal, with no particular 'floor'. The aircraft appear to be sitting on walls, ceiling, etc.
Buzz: Doris and Fiorella, these are personal vehicles for use within the park's airskin.
Buzz: Are there any craft here that appeal to you?
Close-up of Doris, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.
Doris: Oh, yeah.
