Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.

Please Stand By

Hurricane Beryl damage

As many of you may have heard, huricane Beryl caused a lot of damage to buildings and infrastructure in the Houston area. It also took out power and Internet service on Galveston Island where Scott lives. As a consequence, uploads of Quantum Vibe will be delayed until power and Internet services are restored. Hopefully it will only effect Monday's strip, but we can't promise anything at this point. In any event, we will resume uploads as soon as possible. Please check back here for further developments.


Novo Palermo Part 1 of 3 Begins

Hey gang! The next exciting volume of Quantum Vibe begins today with Novo Palermo. It's a been a year since the war, and families are returning to the City. Some of them include Alyss' extended family, including fifth, sixth, and seventh great-grandchildren.

Since "Abuela" has lived five centuries, she has plenty of stories to tell them, and this time she is asked to tell the story of "Novo Palermo," which was set 400 years in their past, or about 600 years in our future. It's the story of Alyss and Li-Liang's first attempt to settle a new world outside the Sol System.

As one might expect, hi-jinks will ensue.


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.

The EFT Team

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 (sandy@sandfort.biz) with EFT Mailing List in the subject line and we will put you on the list.
