  • Mogrum’s improvements on the Skatalyx are visible when compared to their last appearance
  • This is Refusaleth’s first full reappearance since his severe wounding in #161 (partial, #178); he has a headstone, and the shield on his chest is based on Rene Belloq’s, from the climax of Raiders of the Lost Ark (with accurate crystal placement)
  • Initially, banners were displayed beneath Refusaleth’s throne, representing countries he had conquered (Drymouth’s is visible in panel 5, with placeholders for three more countries, representing Refusaleth’s accountability)
  • Refusaleth moves from his throne down hundreds of steps to an inch from Guntaur’s face in the blink of an eye, then holds an impossible, almost anti-defensive posture on his toes at a 45-degree angle, then “teleports” himself and Guntaur, after doing that nightmare-mouth thing he does, indicating that he has grown exponentially in power
  • Quiatas rarely speaks Refusaleth’s name
