Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.

End Of The War

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.


The Transcript For This Page

Strip 44

Panel 1
Medium close-up of Reggie, starting to doff his kingly attire – underneath he’s wearing a cotton t-shirt and trousers.

Reggie: But let’s get down to business. How do you guys think I did with our Terran friends?


Panel 2
Two-shot of Bert and Ernie. Bert is leaning forward in his chair.


Bert: Smashing light effects, Reggie! And where did you find that crown?

Ernie: Loved the uniform, too. Came from the Ceres Players production of ‘HMS Pinafore,’ right?


Panel 3
Medium shot of Reggie, carefully folding the uniform jacket.

Reggie: Mostly, though I borrowed some pieces from one of the Spartan costumes in ‘Lysistrata.’ The crown was from ‘Camelot.’


Panel 4
Reggie has turned away from the Guzmans while putting some of the Spartan accouterments in a box atop the filing cabinet. He has a wry smile, and you can see Bert and Ernie exchanging grins behind him.

Reggie: I had to choose between ‘Pinafore’ and ‘The Mikado’ and I was pretty sure I couldn’t pull off the ‘oriental potentate’ act.
