Just In Time For Christmas?

Big Head Press Supply Store - Mugs, T-Shirts, Posters & More...

Well... there's still time left for you to order that last minute gift to give to that Big Head Press fan you love so much. Including if that someone's you. Big Head Press Santa has been busy the last few weeks setting up the Big Head Press Supply Store at Zazzle.com.

From our supply store, you can buy coffee mugs, t-shirts, posters and more,sporting the Big Head Press logo, as well as images from Big Head Press stories like our current running popular slightly weird sci-fi webcomic Quantum Vibe. Many items you can customize their colors. We've stocked the store with a few items to start, and will be adding more over time. Stay tuned for announcements on that.

But the fun part is you can take any of the art work we put up on the zazzle store, and you can apply them to pretty much any product Zazzle will put it on. The list is too long for here. Check it out for yourself. And hurry, only a couple of weeks until Christmas!


The Transcript For This Page

Strip 3 – That damned noise

Panel 1
Guy touches a button on the corner of his keyboard, and some musical notes flow out of a pair of what looks like playing cards adhered to the cub walls close to him. They are speakers.

Caption: Recently the UWRS workers’ union won the right of employees to have entertainment in the workplace. Guy enjoyed baroque music…

Panel 2
Looking at the cubes from above, we can see Fat Slob in the next cube. Fat Slob is sort of the opposite of Guy – personally a mess but keeps a neat cube, as he does as little as possible. He also has a large flat HDTV screen on his cube wall that is running a UWN newscast at high volume. We see some smarmy pol in a suit talking to microphones.

At the bottom of the screen is an ID line for the TV network and the subject as “Cal Sector Rep. Paul Norman” (it’s okay if the tag line is not entirely legible at size)

Caption: But his cube neighbor insisted on playing UWN at top volume.

Norman (on HDTV): Every day, home managers and hobbyists slip and fall in their kitchens, home workshops and garages. Without a helmet, they run the risk of serious head injuries and even death!


Panel 3
Medium close-up of Guy looking really, really annoyed.

Norman (continues from last panel): That’s why I am asking my colleagues to expand the helmet safety law beyond home showers and bath-tubs.

Guy (small letters, grumbling to himself): If I don’t get some peace and quiet, I’m going to go postal!
