Strip 736 -- First Seen: 2011-06-30
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.


Not-Safe dot Kickstarter

Not Safe Comics logo

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 shot of some of the teens rigging their hammocks. In the foreground, silhouetted, we see an arm extending from the side of each panel, clasping hands. The arms belong to Ernie and Lili.
Caption: Bunking the kids in the common area was Lili's idea.
Caption: She told Ernie she knew about boys and girls.

Panel 2
Smallish panel, close 2-shot of Ernie and Lili, looking sideways at each other with knowing smiles. (Ernie can be standing behind Lili and a bit to one side, to get them close in the frame.)
Caption: Lili and Ernie, however, snuggled up in the Captain's cabin.

Panel 3
Wide shot of the captain's cabin. Lily is laying supine on the bed, propped up on her elbows, looking coquettish. Ernie is pulling off his clothes as fast as he can.
Caption: Rank hath its privileges.
Caption: Lili took the opportunity, once again, to demonstrate to Ernie her knowledge about boys and girls.
Caption: It happened every time they got together.
Caption: Different life choices didn't allow Ernie and Lili to live together, but the attraction was always there – always like the first time.
