New Colorist [ Jan 15, 2015 ]
We are pleased to announce that Lea Jean Badelles, who had filled in as a temporary colorist for Zeke Bieser last Spring, is joining us as our regular colorist. She colored the Leap of Faith guest strip for us and is doing the colors over Scott's line art going forward. Lea Jean hails from the Philippines, and you can see some of her other work at her Deviant Art page.
Zeke is continuing on his own, doing commission work and a bit of real-life work out from underneath his father's shadow. We wish him the best.
And We Are Back! [ Jan 11, 2015 ]
Quantum Vibe returns this week. So you thought exploding in the rings of Saturn would slow our intrepid heroines down? And what in the world is going to happen to Seamus? These questions and more will be answered in the upcoming daily strips of Quantum Vibe.
We at Big Head Press also hoped you enjoyed our guest story installment "Leap of Faith" by Mike Baron and Lee Oaks! A short story set in the Quantum Vibe universe telling the tale of a woman and how hard it can still be to get by in the solar system.

Murphy: Coasting to maximum altitude ...
Nicole: Breach engine activation in 3 … 2 … 1 ...
The girls watch in astonishment as the probe seems to squeeze in on itself.
Murphy: Oh, no …
Nicole: A singularity?
The probe disappears in a tiny flash.
Nicole: FEEK! When it falls back down here …
Murphy: No worries – it's too small and will 'evaporate' long before it reaches the planetoid.
Close 2-shot of Nicole and Murphy looking up at the monitor.
Nicole: Well, at least that was something.
Murphy: Something, but worse than nothing. We have no salvage to examine.
Murphy lays an affectionate arm across Nicole's shoulders.
Murphy: We need a fresh approach. Let's take some time off.
Nicole: And do what?
Murphy: I have an idea ...
