Strip 159 -- First Seen: 2009-04-23
Escape From Terra is updated with new pages every Monday through Friday.

End Of The War

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Wide panel. Dominating the panel on the left side is an external view of the Gamma Conqueror's starboard side (the ship will extend a bit out of the top and bottom of the frame). On the right side, the five-meter iron rock tumbles past, and we can now see that a mining ship (about 3 meters across and 5 meters long) has been trailing the asteroid and is now swinging around towards the bridge of the larger ship.

Caption: As the iron rocks tumble past the Strike Force ships, the small mining ships they had been concealing swing into view...

Panel 2
Interior, the bridge of the Gamma Conqueror. Harris and the crew look upward in the alarm at the mining ship they can see through their canopy, directly facing them. A laser cannon is aimed at them. If space permits we might see one of the Beta-class ships in a similar predicament.
Caption: Maneuvering with their guidance rockets, each of those little ships has its multi-megawatt cutting laser aimed directly at the bridges of the Strike Force ships.
