Strip 554 -- First Seen: 2010-10-21
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!

Pablo (OP): Usually with miscreants who have insufficient funds we give them a track-and-disable collar that cannot be removed.
Cut back to Pablo. There's extra dialog in this panel so leave room for it.
Pablo: If they don't get a job we can indenture them to the highest bidder.
Pablo: There are contractual protections against physical abuse, dangerous work, and so forth.
Pablo: However, the jobs are usually dirty and difficult. Farm animals are often involved.
Cut to medium close-up of Merry, nearly shouting.
Merry: Sv. Rosenberg, I cannot countenance slavery!
