Head Bump

Written by Vic on . Posted in

Looks like things are smoothing out for these guys.  Let’s hope they make it back in one piece! In the meantime, let’s check out what’s going on back at the camp, shall we? So I’ve been on vacation for the last little bit, which is why I’ve been able to crank out some pages.  Production will slow down again once I get back to work, but fear not! The pages will continue to roll out!  This story is ramping up to a very intense climax and I’m really excited to tell the tale! If you want to stay tuned to my progress, follow my Twitter feed, my G+ page, or like Zik on Facebook.  There’s also the RSS feed. I’m also considering adding a newsletter that will keep fans in the know when a new page is online.  Would that interest you? Do people still email these days?

As If He Caught It

Okay, so apparently the Zernab Clonoid soldiers don’t feel pain. I guess we’ll have to keep that in mind for next time, eh Zik? If you survive, that is…

Taking Aim

And there he goes! Zik is rapelling away using the EVR system, but there’s still another Clonoid! Will he escape? Tune in next time! By the way, like the image above says, “next time” will be next Tuesday.  I’ve got a lot going on this summer, and rather than potentially missing updates, I’m going to have a summer schedule of one update per week on Tuesdays.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but I want to make sure I’m consistent and I’ve got a lot of renovating to do. And swimming.

Escape Attempt

So now we see how the EVR system works! EVR stands for Extra-Vehicular Rescue.  Basically, if you’re ejected into space, you can use the boots to give you a propulsion boost and the grappling hook to attach yourself to a ship of some kind.  It’s a hail Mary sort of system, but it’s better than drifting in space till you freeze to death!  And yes, I know, Zik doesn’t have a face mask on — he doesn’t always wear it.  When we get into some real space combat scenes you’ll see the face mask part of Zik’s costume.  It’s a bit like what fighter pilots wear today. Hey, have you been following Adam Black’s Silk And Honey western webcomic? If you have (and you should!) you may be aware that Adam has been having site issues.  Those are solved now!  I set up some new digs for him over at http://silknhoney.departure-productions.com and now you can see the comic as Adam originally intended! Update your bookmarks! And if you haven’t yet read this brand new western with monsters and babes, what in tarnation are you waiting for, pilgrim?! Lastly, I’d like to share this, which I posted to the Zik Facebook page yesterday.  Soon, humanity will be on more than one lonely, pale blue dot.

An Opportunity

A split second can change everything, if you’re quick enough to take advantage of it.  So what’s an EVR? Tune in Thursday to find out! I’ve got some Zik fan art to share with you! My daughter surprised me yesterday with this masterpiece: You can find it full-size alone with some other goodies in the extras section! Thanks Lenore!!
