Strip 992 -- First Seen: 2012-07-05
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
A collection of secondary characters from earlier in the story, some of them Mascons, some of them Locals, sitting at a table in a bar and enjoying drinks and conversation together.
Caption: Once Marsha's spell was broken, most of the Mascons were perfectly willing to live under Vesta's cultural norms.
Caption: The Locals didn't hold any grudges. They admitted it was the most fun they'd had in years.

Panel 2
Pilgrim Boner is at a souped-up computer workstation -- think of Tony Stark's home laboratory in the first Iron Man movie. He's standing in front of a curved bank of large holographic screens, interacting with them via hand-gestures and touching the screens. His face a study in concentration.
Caption: Pilgrim went back to his work on the Odeum and Darcy Underground.
Caption: He also made money as a freelance consultant specializing in comoputer system and networking security issues.
Caption: He had to justify that MIT degree somehow.

Panel 3
Marsha and some of the other ex-Council Members, with luggage in tow, are in the Spaceport Lobby. Marsha is speaking with Robert Katzman, the freighter pilot we first saw at the end of Fly, Robyn Fly.
Caption: Marsha and her Council decided they'd be happier elsewhere.
Marsha: Mr. ... ah ... Bobcat? I understand your ship is launching today -- could you drop us off at Mars?
