Scott's List of Proud Patrons

Scott @ Oni-Con XIII [ Sep 10, 2016 ]

Oni-Con XIII October - 28th-30th, 2016 - Galveston , Tx - Annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo

Hey kids! As the cold weather creeps in this fall, what better way to make summer last a little longer than to head down to the Texas island of Galveston, October 28 - 30, and enjoy margaritas on the beach while getting to meet (and get an autograph from) your favorite sci-fi comic artist and creator of the slightly mad Quantum Vibe webcomic, Scott Bieser, at Galveston's annual Japanese Pop Culture & Multi-Genre Fan Expo: Oni-Con XIII. Hosted at the Galveston Island Convention Center you're a short walk from the beach. You're margarita won't have time to start melting before you begin imbibing that last little taste of summer.

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
On the command deck, Eithne, Murphy and Hugo are at their ring-stanchions.
Caption: And so, two days later:
Murphy: Mister Lamdagan?
Eithne: Systems check complete, Captain, all reporting 100 percent.
Murphy: Very good. Mister Galvéz?
Hugo: The barn is all buttoned-up for our extended absence.
Panel 2
Two-shot of Murphy and Hugo.
Hugo: There is one thing we've overlooked.
Murphy: What's that?
Hugo: We haven't named this starship.
Panel 3
Murphy rolls her eyes. Eithne is intrigued. Hugo explains.
Murphy: Oh, for gourd's sake, Hugo! You and your archaic fixations.
Hugo: It won't hurt to indulge me on this one. But the choice should go to the owner, our boson.
Eithne: Um, I haven't really thought about a name. But I like the idea.
Panel 4
Hugo, Murphy and Eithne hash it out.
Hugo: Well, if I may suggest a name, I'd recommend Causa Sui.
Eithne: Kawza Swee? What's that?
Hugo: An ancient Latin term, meaning 'cause of itself.' It relates to how we assign purpose to our own lives.
Panel 5A
Eithne, Murphy and Hugo. Hugo is holding up one hand and snapping his fingers.
Eithne: I like it.
Murphy: I suppose you'll want to do the Christening ceremony, too.
Hugo: This won't take long.

Panel 5B
On a wall of the bay, a panel slides open, and a champagne bottle flies out of the opening.
SFX: Fwoosh!

Panel 6
The bottle breaks on the bow of Causa Sui.
Murphy (OP): You can clean up the mess when we return.
Hugo: Aye-aye, Captain Sweetie.
