Fun episode as always.

I wonder if the colorist on the New York Krang panel accidentally looked at the color scheme for Kang instead.

So, I usually get the musical/sound reference played after each character, but what's the connection between Kofi and "The One that I Want" from Grease?

Wouldn't Kang also have had a blue face? Kind of looks like Immortus though.

As for the reference, the girls said he was coiffed like a greaser, and that song starts with a mention of the word stud, which is a horse reference.

Another great episode. I loved the extended (and excited) discussion of acoustics during the Klaw entry. As for Kubert drawing Killer Shrike, maybe it was supposed to be a callback to his Hawkman stuff, since they're both bird-related?

Siskoid said...

That's the best theory I've heard!

Of course, why you would put one of American comics' greatest artist on such a mort is another question entirely.

It was probably meant as an inside joke, like Curt Swan drawing Gladiator.
