Behind the scenes

  • This is the first time Phantom's home is called the Deep Woods.
  • Guran son, Timo, is yet to appear in the strip, but what seems to be a reference to him is made in this story, as Nelson tells Roark that he heard news about the Phantom from "a son of a pigmy witch-doctor."
  • For the second time, the color of the Phantom's suit is mentioned, and just like in "The Singh Brotherhood", it's said to be gray.
