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.


What Comes Next

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!


The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Re-establish the scene in the spaceport, as Marsha and her cronies seek passage off of Vesta with Robert 'Bobcat' Katzman.
Bobcat: I'm afraid I can't take you to Mars, at least not on this trip.
Bobcat: I gotta cargo committed to Power City, in the Uranian atmosphere.
Panel 2
Marsha pleads with Bobcat. Bobcat looks thoughtful.
Marsha: Please, Mr. Bobcat, isn't there anything you can do to help us?
Bobcat: Well ... the least-energy trajectory would pass close enough to Pallas that a local shuttle could take you on a transfer.
Panel 3
Marsha and her delighted cohort shuffle off after Bobcat. They shuffle past (not into) a doorway which will be the focus of the next panel.
Marsha: Is that closer to Mars? Well, no matter, we accept!
Bobcat (thought): After that, you'll be Pallas' problem.

Panel 4
Focus on that doorway. A sign tells us it's the ARRIVAL GATE. Pierre Le Boeuf (from the 'Code Duello' arc) is standing just in front of the doorway, with his luggage at his feet, and is looking around with a disappointed expression.
Pierre: Bonjour, je suis ici. Is anyone here?

Panel 5
A 10-year-old boy wearing a truckers-style cap with the words 'Vesta Spaceport Agent' on it, Vesta-walks up to Pierre.
Boy: May I help you, sir? I'm a Vesta Spaceport Agent.
Pierre: I am looking for the Vesta Council offices. Can you direct me there?
Panel 6
Medium close-up on the boy so we can see his cap, a remembrance of Babbette The Younger's first appearance.
Boy: Well sir, The Vesta Council offices are currently closed.
Boy: May I take you to a suitable hotel? My runabout is over there.
Panel 7
Pierre tip-toe-walks along behind the boy, who has taken some of Pierre's luggage.
Pierre: Alright, garçon, take me to your finest hotel, the Vesta Council will be paying for it.
Panel 8
Medium Close-up on the boy, smiling. We can see a name-tag on his shirt which reads, 'Mario Farber.'
Boy: As you wish, Sv. To the Farber Inn, best hotel on Vesta.
