I can't tell you how much I appreciate everyone who backed our Kickstarter project. One small matter remains: a couple of you have yet to provide your shipping address for your rewards. As soon as possible, please either fill out the Kickstarter survey request found on the Kickstarter site, or simply send us an email Orders address and we will ship your reward soon after. If you're wondering why you haven't received a notice about this via email, please check your spam folder.
We made it! We exceeded our target goal and we're wrapping up the loose ends. Big thanks to our project backers. We're your biggest fans for supporting our project to create the Omnibus hard bound edition of Quantum Vibe: The Murphy Drive>, a collection of the first three volumes of the Quantum Vibe saga.
Over the next week or so, Scott will be assembling the book pages for printing. We expect to have the printed books and other items on hand and ready for ship in December 2023. The E-book edition of the Omnibus should be available for download from DriveThruComics to those backers who selected that award. Vouchers will be sent via email.
The Transcript For This Page
A well-dressed, blond gentleman strolls along Park Avenue in 22nd-Century New York City (which actually looks a lot like early 21st-Century New York, except for the clothing fashions of the citizenry, and the visible CCTV cameras placed all around, and more bicycles and pedi-cabs than cars in the street.
Title: Vesta, Massachusetts
Caption: Pilgrim Boner was a product of his history.
Caption: Born in California, just after his artsy parents had chosen to move to 'more progressive' Plymouth Massachusetts. Hence, his given name.
Boner walks towards the entrance to a century-old, high-rise apartment building, flanked by a doorman in traditional doorman's attire, and another man in a policeman's uniform with a sub-machine gun slung across his chest. The doorman cheerfully holds the door open for Boner while the armed guard grimly regards Boner through narrowed eyes.
Caption: His parents had always pronounced the family name, bohn-Air, but to their great irritation, people invariably called them BONE-er.
Boner is in his not-large but tidy apartment, hanging up his coat. On one wall we can see a portrait of Ayn Rand.
Caption: When Pilgrim came of age, he rejected his parents' progressivism and moved to New York City, where he got into the Objectivist scene.
Boner is seated in an overstuffed chair, a drink on the table beside him. In his lap he has a computer keyboard. A 40-inch diagonal holoscreen is materializing 2 meters in front of him.
Caption: When he had a falling-out with the Randian crowd, he decided he would just be an anarcho-capitalist.
