Strip 601 -- First Seen: 2010-12-27
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!
Tall panel. The 'coal-mine canaries' walking (almost marching) through the Ceres Spaceport lobby. An older (about 38) Asian male, a younger and slightly taller Asian male with intense black eyes and an aura of lethality, a tall, sinewy Ethiopian woman, a big and beefy young white man with red hair and freckles. The men all have buzz cuts, the woman's hair is also fairly short. They wear work cover-alls, no weapons, and walk with ram-rod-straight posture. In this panel they are carrying ruck-sacks.
The Transcript For This Page
Caption: They arrived on an express burner from Luna. No one paid much attention to them when they arrived, but Belters who met them noticed a few odd things about them.
Caption: They only socialized with each other, but they were definitely not 'couples' of any sort. They wore civilian clothes but gave off an unmistakable aura of military experience.
The Water Bros. Café. The 'canaries' have just entered, and are lined up with the older Asian male in the lead. He is talking to Robyn who has some menus in hand.
Caption: The older Asian male was clearly in charge – he told the others what to do and they did it.
Now Robyn is clearing dirty dishes from a table not far from the Cashier stand. The 'canaries' are exiting the cafe single-file, again with the older Asian male in the lead. Emily Rose is at the Cashier-stand, looking at the departing newcomers with concern.
Caption: Most people figured them for deserters.
Caption: However, that was the sort of inquiry that Belter courtesy and respect for privacy avoided.
