Santa actually really is Muslim. Saint Nicholas was from Turkey, although his remains have been somewhere in Italy for the past millennium. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Yeah, right. Living in what was later to be Turkey makes him a muslim. Islam was not even invented yet. Undee (talk) 11:44, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Of course you have to explain how St Nick who died in 343 CE could have been following a religion whose founder was born in 570 CE. But you knew that. I also think we can do somewhat better than "somewhere in Italy". His tomb is at Basilica di San Nicola in Bari, Italy. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

And also, equating Santa with St Nicholas is problematic at best. Santa came about as an amalgamation of many different figures from folklore, so even if St Nick were Muslim, at best you could call Santa part-Muslim. 18:31, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

I always thought Black Hat was talking to Danish. The hair's longer and it makes a modicum more sense that way (at least to me) Anonymous 03:34, 4 December 2013 (UTC) (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I see what you are saying (although I couldn't comment on whether the hair is longer) but the question sounds like something Megan would ask. Danish would have built the laser chainsaw. 19:20, 10 January 2014 (UTC)

I don't see Black Hat in any of the panels... 14:50, 22 May 2014 (UTC)
He is at the bottom line, first panel from left. --Dgbrt (talk) 20:48, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

Just checked this image for any data in the black frames (like in SOPA). There is nothing; all pixels read #000000. 20:52, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

I'm don't think "sublimate" means vaporize... And neither would vaporize fit with the rest the story... 14:08, 14 May 2014 (UTC)

Sublimation is a specific type of vaporization. I don't think the exact nature of the board's destruction is important to the comic. 18:31, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Of all the black panels, i'm most curious about the contents of number 32. It would have made more sense if panel 31 read something like "From all of us to all of you, we wish you..."Mumiemonstret (talk) 09:37, 12 August 2014 (UTC)

Clones (cloned raptors) vs droids (cyborgs), and then victorious clones turning against their masters... Well, this raptors seem to be more independent then altered clones of Jango Fett but may be lightsabers aren't the only SW quote here. 16:53, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

I feel like there should be some sort of way to view them probably via Easter egg
