Chapter titles are "Missile Beach Party"; "The Venus Flyer Trap"; and "The Dopey Diplomat". "Missile Beach Party" echoes the title of a popular movie, "Muscle Beach Party." Hing the Heartless echoes Ming the Merciless, villain of the Flash Gordon serials. Aquaman is drawn in the style of Nick Cardy.
