Scott's List of Proud Patrons



Lee Oaks presents THUNDER MONKEY! [ Jun 14, 2016 ]

He's not from our world. His sister is annoying. His skin explodes. When he punches something it goes KA-BOOM! Meet THUNDER MONKEY.

THUNDER MONKEY: The Young Years is a comic-book funded via Kickstarter by Lee Oaks, the artist for BHP's sci-fi adventure strip Escape From Terra. It is an all-ages comic with a lead character Lee describes as "Curious George with superpowers." The book is scheduled to ship in September 2016.




Kudos from David Brin [ Jun 13, 2016 ]

QUANTUM VIBE received a welcome shout-out recently from award-winning sci-fi author David Brin in his blog this month. (Third entry in a list of 18 recommended web-comics.)

Scott has read and enjoyed several of Brin's novels, including The Postman and Sun Diver and Brin's kudos made his day. Special thanks to QV reader Harvey Morrell for bringing this to our attention.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
The base of the Macapá Beanstalk. A Manager, this one a lovely young Latina, is standing by, flanked by two Arsociates, as Wayne walks into the frame, followed by the android carrying his luggage.
Manager: You're just in time, Mr. Bobinardi.
Wayne: Of course I am. Are these my valets?

Panel 2
The Valets take the luggage from the Android. Wayne doesn't look at them, but looks at the Manager.
Manager: Yes, Excellency. They are called 'Dean' and 'Jerry.'
Wayne: They will do, let's get going.

Panel 3
Wayne and the Manager sit in comfortable seats, while the Valets sit on what are essentially boxes built into the floor. They are in a large elevator car with tall windows so they can see the Earth falling away beneath them.
Wayne: I daresay this ride takes longer than the trip from Brussels. But the view is spectacular.

Panel 4
Wayne stretches back in his seat and looks lustily at the Manager. She looks back at him with a forced smile.
Wayne: My dear, since we have this time together, have you considered joining the thousand-mile-high club?
