Title: Errata
Post by: mysteryrainbowx on September 10, 2014, 12:36:12 am
the water spigot in Nicole's and Murphy's bathroom sink is not only reflected in the mirror but also on the non-reflective surface of the wall. I know Scott likes to fix this kind of stuff before putting the cartoon in the book. (I am obviously got nothing better to do while waiting for September 10 strip to load.)  I give up I am going to bed I will read it tomorrow.  I am so happy for Scott has a new lady friend.

MY BAD! that is not the edge of the mirror it is some other edge in the wall behind Murphy. I am too sleepy to be the critic.

This is a question, rather than a claim of an erratum; is "GHGB" intentional?  I can't find anything that would indicate what this is -- the closest is a genealogical society in Bern.

If it is intentional, what does it stand for?

I don't know either, but a Google Search (https://www.google.com/search?num=50&newwindow=1&safe=off&hl=en&site=webhp&source=hp&q=GHGB&oq=GHGB&gs_l=hp.13..0i10l8j0l2.2658.2658.0.11563.2.2.0.0.0.0.960.1918.6-2.2.0....0...1c.2.56.hp..1.1.960.0.j-i5NwkY2NI) on GHGB turns up lots of options.

Sorry for being  absent for so long, various reasons...

I'm re-reading & catching up now. During that , I noticed something that could be a typo on strip 772: "impartant" in the last panel. Then I checked the transcript and noticed that it rather contains an alternative text for the last panel, the 2nd half of it does not match the page.

(A forum search showed that RobbinR spotted the "impartant" exactly a year ago.)
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: Scott on February 19, 2015, 07:45:46 am
Thanks for the reminder. I vaguely recall that I was hella busy when that goof was first pointed out and I didn't fix it right away and then forgot.

Fixed now.

Heh :) Thank you - since I can neither draw nor write, I enjoy these very rare moments where I can be a little bit helpful immensely  ;D

Now nearly caught up and just spotted another one: Strip 1028, panel 3, this time verified by the transcript: Both speech bubbles should lead to Nicole.

Today's page, first panel.  Bok has 2 balloons, Dorothy has 1.  The second Bok balloon belongs to Dorothy.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: DrakBibliophile on July 09, 2015, 08:10:02 am
Strip 1125, Bok says "I've been going out and exploring the city since I was 21". 

Since Bok is said to be currently 17, I suspect it's meant to be "since I was 12".  :)

This is both in the image and in the script below.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: Scott on July 09, 2015, 10:23:44 am
Years on this world are quite a bit shorter than Terran years. Roughly, 1 year on Bok's world equals .61 Terran years.

Then his "21" is just under our "13".  That works out.  :)

Also, in this day and age, a sling crosses the body, relieving pressure on an entire arm from the shoulder down. A sling on the same arm would be more likely to slip off as well as possibly exacerbating the injury. You could pass it off as "future medicine" if you wanted to.

It's long been established that a discrepancy between the script and what ends up on the panel is not an erratum per se, but a display of the creative process in action.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: bjdotson on December 07, 2015, 08:43:06 am
That is true as far as differences between the two goes; BUT this wasn't a difference, it was a rerun of an old transcript. that has nothing to do with "creative process"

On the 02/08/16 strip, looks like all the dialog bubbles in panel 2 should belong to Zander. And "anysuit" is misspelled.

Strip 1283, panel one, Alyss says, "...I need to debrief Junko." whereas the Transcript reads, "...I need to debrief Hayami." Not sure "Junko" would be considered an affectionate nickname for an android.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: DSL on February 22, 2016, 08:11:21 am
"Junko" is a Japanese woman's first name. Perhaps the robot's full name is "Junko Hayami."
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: Scott on February 25, 2016, 09:37:58 am
No, that was an error, which has been fixed. Junko is the name of a Japanese gal I dated briefly, long ago. I changed it to Hayami but somehow left it as "Junko" in that panel.

Hello,

Registered just to post this.  I hope that isn't rude, just trying to help:

http://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=1525

Panel 2, the male does not have a plunging neckline as he does in the other panels and in the previous days' strips.  Looks like just one line is missing, the part that looks like a collar is usually a choker.  I noticed it with the line art, but figured that it would be sorted out in the coloring.  Since no one else pointed it out, well, there it is.

Fun comics, thanks for catering to my predispositions.

Cheers

Strip# 1546 March 6, 2017

1. The lettering split the word "not" across two lines.

2. Eithne's speech bubble is set up as if she's speaking aloud. The transcript says it's a thought, which, if I recall correctly, uses a bunch of little bubbles from character to speech bubble to show it is being thought instead of said.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: Sean Roach on May 03, 2017, 09:09:43 am
Strip #1588. Panel 2.
Eithne's shock collar has gone invisible.
I don't think this one can be chalked up to her anysuit.
Title: Re: Errata
Post by: puke on May 04, 2017, 08:07:40 am
in http://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=1561 the door open/close colors are not implemented.

Panel 2, door color should indicate 'open' per the script notes. 

I understand these don't always match up, but we've seen the doors showing their correct open/close colors in a few strips since, and it seems likely that it was intended here also.
Title: Re: Errata

The butthead has learned to speak a human language. In the first cell, the right-hand speech bubble lacks the indicators for the Glutenoid's speech.
Edit. I see the color version has been corrected relative to the line-art which was posted first.

Not an errata in the comic per se, but in the Transcript of strip 1709:

Panel 1
Two-shit of Eithne and Giant Theo, showing their relative sizes Eithne is a bit less than two meters tall; Theo is 10 meters tall.

should be

Panel 1
Two-shot of Eithne and Giant Theo, showing their relative sizes Eithne is a bit less than two meters tall; Theo is 10 meters tall.

I always read the transcripts as they sometimes reveal information that was either intended for the comic but was left out, is unclear in the comic, or is just new information altogether.
