Strip 870 -- First Seen: 2012-01-17
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

Leon, still in a mock-gruff tone and body stance. The group of children giggling in front of him.

Leon: Okay, first-and-a-half:

Leon: ...Don't sass your elders, speak only when spoken to and kids should be seen and not heard. Got it?

Kids: Hee hee! Tee hee! Haha!

Panel 2

Leon lurches forward as though he were about to leave his comfortable chair. The children shriek and run away in mock panic.

Leon: So you think you've called my bluff, have you?

Leon: Where's my switch?

Panel 3

Leon settles back with a self-satisfied grin on his face.

Leon: Alright, second, I'm not your grandfather anyway. For most of you, I am your great-great-great-grandfather,

Panel 4

Head and shoulders shot of Lucas, a cute kid missing his two front teeth and has big eyes.

Leon (OP): 'cept you, Lucas, I'm your great-great-great-great-grandfather.

Panel 5

Head and shoulders shot of Flora, about 10 years old with straight hair in loose pigtails.

Leon (OP): And Flora, I'm only your great-great-grandfather.
