Plot inspiration[edit]

The plot is based on an unspecified science fiction comic

Czech-language comic books from 25 years ago have an incomplete web presence (imagine that), but have a look at this scanned image.  If one of our European editors happened to live near a large library, that could theoretically be a lead.    Ryan W 06:46, February 9, 2010 (UTC)   Another clue, for people like me who have to have everything in English: [1]

I googled the writer and artist's names at the bottom of that image - Václav Šorel and František Kobík, if you wonder - and found more info on that story in Czech. Judging from the information I got out of it using Google Translate (from here and the Czech Wikipedia), it appears we've found our source! I'll be adding it to the article shortly.

Wow.  What would we do without you?   :>     Ryan W 17:48, February 9, 2010 (UTC)
