Indexer Notes

This story and the one that follows are sequels to the stories appearing in Disney Masters #2, "Uncle Scrooge's Money Rocket" and "The Return of Rebo". The original story ("Money Rocket") was first published in 1960, well over three decades before these follow-ups, but all are the work of creator Luciano Bottaro.

This third entry in the "Rebo/Saturn/Jupiter Wars" series also refers, in a minor way, to Carl Barks' "Daisy's Spring Cleaning" story from Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #213 (1958).

Disney Dog-Face versions of Perry White and Jimmy Olsen make a cameo.

The American English title, “Fear the Wrath of Rebo”, was fashioned from two other sci-fi/fantasy favorites of the "translation and dialogue author" Joe Torcivia - “Fear the Walking Dead” and “Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan”.

Indexer Notes

This story begins quite literally after the concluding panel of “Fear the Wrath of Rebo”, opening on Rebo and his two generals in the same setting - and even in the same positions - as they'd ended the previous story, though these stories were originally published two years apart in 1995 and 1997 respectively.

The fourth entry in the "Rebo/Saturn/Jupiter Wars" series.

Dr. Zantaf, another Luciano Bottaro creation, previously appeared in the United States in Donald Duck (IDW, 2015 Series) #9 / 376 (January 2016). https://www.comics.org/issue/1523664/

Indexer Notes

Nice Touch: Witch Hazel's business card reads: "Witch Hazel, Witches' Union Local 839". "Local 839" refers to the Animation Guild - seen often in the "blanket end credits" of the various incarnations of "The Bugs Bunny Show" (1960-on) for decades, and sometimes spoofed in Warner Bros. cartoons.

Indexer Notes

The title, "Voyage to the Bottom of the Hole" is a parody/tribute reference to the television series "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (1964-1968), with the title font taken from a 1960s Gold Key "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" comic book - per a conversation with "translation and dialogue" scripter David Gerstein by indexer Joe Torcivia. (2021).

While Luciano Bottaro is known for his wonderfully strange imagery in previous stories, this is perhaps his weirdest effort of all.
