Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon Kartini is a real place on Venus, a crater named for a Javanese educator.

When Doctor Haas first met Rocco, he convinced Rocco that he knows a Martian, even though this isn't true.

The Venusian Civil War has been mentioned before on pages 134 and 191.

Okay, we're done with Venusian politics now.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs So much for a nice day on Venus.

One of the possible layouts for this page included a little superdeformed mini-comic showing how Dr. Haas obtained the autofactory. Ultimately it just didn't fit, but I've uploaded the sketches nonetheless, as they're kinda neat: The Rebels Steal The Autofactory, Haas Steals It Right Back. I think the Steal-Bot is one of the coolest things I've ever drawn, incidentally.

Also speaking of robots, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow is well worth your while. Especially if you like robots because there's just a bucketload of them, alongside the snappy dialogue, cool 1940s stylings, ray guns that go "dow-dow-dow-dow!" and whatnot. There are also some useful tips on how to design your secret volcano lair which all mad scientists should be careful to attend to.
