  • The dialogue in the first two panels is loosely referencing lines from the beginning of Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
  • The rocks are the collapsed bodies of the Gargrudgen, under which miles of towns and people are buried; the capitol spires are clearly visible in the distance
  • Essul’s “extendable legs” are something of an inside joke, to explain his mild changes in height over the course of the strip
  • Essul probably gained perfect sight (which he has displayed previously) through forbidden knowledge
