Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 On Sales Now!
Exciting news boys and girls, the 310 strips of Quantum Vibe: Venus 23 have been collected into a fourth Quantum Vibe volume from Big Head Press and is on sale now from various online retailers.
Venus 23 is the story of life on a small backwater planet, 500 years after the invention of the Murphy Drive. "Zytemonde" is a well managed, orderly, and predictable world where all needs are provided for by powerful android rulers. But life is hardly paradise when managing resources also includes controlling every aspect of everyone's life. And despite best efforts by their android rulers, a slow decay of civil society is beginning to show; with growing black markets, supply shortages, and power outages becoming more common.
Yet, while the rot slowly breaks their world down, an unexpected question begins to be seen, asked on posters littered about the city and spray painted on walls: "Hu Iz Alyss Roaz?" Learn the answer to this question along with young Bolivar Eustace Clark ("Bok") and his friends, as they struggle to survive on a world designed to end all struggle.

Scott @ Oni-Con XIII
Hey kids! As the cold weather creeps in this fall, what better way to make summer last a little longer than to head down to the Texas island of Galveston, October 28 - 30, and enjoy margaritas on the beach while getting to meet (and get an autograph from) your favorite sci-fi comic artist and creator of the slightly mad Quantum Vibe webcomic, Scott Bieser, at Galveston's annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo: Oni-Con XIII. Hosted at the Galveston Island Convention Center you're a short walk from the beach. You're margarita won't have time to start melting before you begin imbibing that last little taste of summer.
The Transcript For This Page
Escape From Terra is approaching its 1,000th srip. That represents the better part of four years of five weekly strips. During that time, EFT has nearly always been listed as one of the top 100 most favorite web comics. Wow! We could not have done it without you. You took time out of your life to vote for us and we appreciate it. Thank you readers. We have really enjoyed bringing the EFT universe, and its characters, to life for you.
However... Big Head Press has decided that in the current economy, it will have to concentrate its resources and efforts on Quantum Vibe. The EFT team accepts this and we continue to have the highest respect for Big Head Press for their support and cooperation over the years. Nevertheless, EFT will be comming to an end... or will it?
The EFT team, with the full cooperation of Big Head Press, is looking for a new home for EFT. Big Head has graciously agreed to continue the EFT forum during our search. New stories are not a problem. We have several finished, plus dozens of blocked-out new stories and hundreds of themes and ideas for years of entertainment.
What we need is a new venue. Currently, we are in discussions with a traditional comic publisher about offering EFT as a monthly "comic book". These are the comics some of us grew up on, so we find the idea intriguing. In addition, we are exploring the possibility of offering a portable EFT app for smartphones. We might even offer EFT books internationally in various languages. There are many possibilities.
It also occurs to us that we have the brightest and cleverest readers inthe world. So we would like to solicit your suggestions as t the best way to keep EFT alive and available. Please go to the EFT forum

P.S. If you would like to be notified about EFT plans and opportunities, please get on our mailing list. We will be setting up something a bit more sophisticated, but for now, just send Sandy an email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) with EFT Mailing List in the subject line and we will put you on the list.
