Strip 773 -- First Seen: 2011-08-22
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

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, the scouts – and now Lili – surround Jim's limp form. They're removing his envirosuit. Their own helmets are gone, it's not clear where they are yet but it's not in the airlock. Libby and Emily and Robyn are close together, and Lili is farthest from Jim's head, positioned in a supervisory role.
One of the boys: Whoa, does this guy stink or what?
One of the girls: Phew!

Panel 2
Medium close-up on Lili, showing a couple of other scouts in the frame, looking sideways at her.
Lili: The lower air pressure pushed everything out of his gut into his suit.

Panel 3
Broader shot, taking in more of the scouts, and some more parts of Jim's pressure suit coming off, but at the moment all the scouts are laughing uproariously. We can see now they are back in the common area of the hab.
Lili: It's called vacuum diarrhea.
Group: [laughter]
