Behind the Scenes
- Although appearing in both of the two earlier King stories of Julie, Julie's horse, Flash, is mentioned by name for the first time.
- Julie's brother is said to be the great-great-grandfather of the current Phantom. During the Gold Key era of the magazine the current Phantom was said to be either the 16th, the 17th or the 21st of the line. The only time it is brought up during the King era - in an article in The Phantom #22 - the current Phantom is said to be the 16th. If so, then Julie would be the sister of the 12th Phantom.
- Pat Fortunato has written a blog post about her experiences with writing this story. It can be read here. According to this post:
- King Lliwami (also called Lugami earlier in the story) is named after William "Bill" Harris, the editor who hired her.
- Pat Fortunato admits that King Tumuchi's name is... well, too much!
