Indexer Notes

There are a lot of in-jokes and pop culture details in the background of this story; Frank Miller is portrayed as an obsessive artist drawing water towers; Ollie's gang sits around his house listening to classical records while reading Playduck (a Howard the Duck movie reference); Ollie has Star Wars toys in his room including a Tie-Fighter, a B-Wing Fighter and a Darth Vader poster; Ollie passes a graveyard sporting tombstones for Elektra, Gwen Stacy, Jean Grey and Denny O'Neil; Cops find issues of Ka-Zar and other Marvel comics on the floor of a vandalized convenience store; Ollie steals Rom and G.I. Joe toys from FAO Toys (whose sign exclaims "Amusements for the Well Heeled").
