This is the last of the Adventures of Lucky Vega strips that I have completed for the time being. But a great many more are waiting in the thumbnail-sketch stage to be penciled, inked, and lettered for your entertainment in the weeks and months to come; we're nowhere near finished! And you can rest assured that Quantum Comics Blog will not just be coasting until the strip resumes; I have some other goodies to show you in the weeks ahead.
Meanwhile, we leave off with Trey Blaisdell remembering what he's supposed to be doing this morning, which has nothing to do with the young waitress that he picked up last night, in whose apartment he's just woken up! As Trey hurriedly tosses on his clothing (for now) and speeds out of the apartment, he leaves behind a girl that neither he nor we will ever see again and--though he can't know this now--speeds away to a future of wonderment and adventure such as he's never imagined! We'll all be sharing in that wonderment soon, so keep coming back for more.

We take our leave of Lucky himself just for a moment to have a look at what's going on in a little apartment in North Hollywood where another member of our cast is just waking up. Roger's big brother, Warren Blaisdell III, commonly called just Trey, has not had an easy time in his young life. He is what people used to call "a wayward youth". Make that VERY wayward. He wants to do better than he's done so far, but as we're about to see in our next strip, his wayward impulses still get the better of him. In The Environauts, when Trey acquires his super-powers, he'll be called Cirrus. You'll also note that his wayward impulses are decidedly heterosexual ones. For our gay visitors, take heart: The Adventures of Lucky Vega will have gay characters and gay material as we roll along. We now just happen to be introducing a very straight boy. Keep an eye on Trey as our story unfolds. As you'll also see, he's more than worth keeping an eye on.

We're about to switch scenes in this first Adventure of Lucky Vega. In this strip we set up a scene transition away from Lucky and company for a moment--just long enough to introduce another character in our cast. It seems Lucky's pal Roger has a big brother who's been set up for a job interview with Esteban, and Dr. Vega turns his attention at least for a moment away from the mind-boggling mystery of the cybernetic attacks to the potential newest member of his payroll. We get our first inkling here of whom we're about to meet in our next strip. Stay tuned, as they say...

Rejoining The Adventures of Lucky Vega for the new year, the maddening mystery of who has been attacking the data infrastructure of the world continues--and Dr. Esteban Vega doesn't know what he's going to do about it, at least not yet! Lurking in the future is an evil so vast, so all-consuming, that the assaults on corporate information technology are only its first expression. What is about to attack the Earth and all mankind is something far more deadly than it appears, as we shall see...

Resuming The Adventures of Lucky Vega: When we left off, Esteban Vega was so upset about something that he was unusually critical of Lucky's testing of the Vega Shield. As we see in this strip, he has plenty to be upset about. Who is attacking the IT infrastructure of high-tech companies? Who is it that works with such mysterious and sophisticated methods that he strikes and disappears like some kind of cybernetic ghost that no one can trace? And could this be only the merest hint of a super-science threat so strange, so awesome, so terrifying that only the genius of Lucky Vega and his father could possibly be a match for it? I'd bet on it...

The Adventures of Lucky Vega will resume soon. But first, Quantum Comics Blog is proud to present something special for the holidays.
We’re about to see the always-anticipated unveiling of the annual QUANTUM CHRISTMAS CARD! But this is a very special year, as 2013 marks the 25th year that I’ve been creating these heroic holiday offerings. Think of that: 25 YEARS! For the occasion, before we see the latest edition of the most wondrous Card of all, we first take a look back two and a half decades into the past. Presenting once again: the first, THE ORIGINAL J.A. FLUDD CHRISTMAS CARD! Yes, it's a souvenir of that time before the discovery of fire when I would physically print these things on card paper and mail them in envelopes with postage stamps. It features heroes of the universe in which I first started creating characters, dating back to high school! (Yes, that far, believe it or not!) Some of the concepts of this earlier, pre-existing universe still survive in altered forms in my present work. For this historic occasion, then, a peek way back into history! Then, after this little time warp, scroll directly down below this post for the official unveiling of this year’s Card!
It’s QUANTUM CHRISTMAS CARD time again! Can there be a more awesome holiday event than the annual unveiling of the cosmic Card? Short of the appearance of Father Christmas at Macy's Parade, methinks not! But this year's Card marks an extra-special occasion, for it is in fact the 25th annual Card! Our tradition is now a quarter of a century old! Bear in mind, since not everyone has known me or looked at my work for 25 years, only a very few people have actually seen the Card every year since I started. And for some years there were actually TWO Cards, one of which went only to gay men and heterosexual women. It's true. But this is the 25th year in all that I've been creating these heroic holiday offerings, so for 2013 I wanted to do something really memorable. So in the midst of production I made a critical decision and called out to the assembled Quantum heroes: "Okay, lads, costumes off this time! We're making it a SWIMSUIT EDITION!"
As always, the Card is free to share with friends and loved ones as you desire, with my compliments. Cheers and greetings from Draco Rex, Wild Jon, The Quantum, Idol, Seastorm, Cirrus, The World Champion, The Satellite, The Stone, Lucky Star, The Point, The Serpent, Aquarius, and their creator. And may you all have a historically happy Holiday Season!
