Growing Bubbles or Spheres is similar to Pier's Anthony's Bio of a Space Tyrant. Its not exactly the same process so I'm not sure if its an deliberate Homage, but given that those books are about an immigrant coming into an expy of the US and seizes power installing a liberal socialist government....

strips: 2174, 1729, 2022, 1287, 2063, 1994, 1267 etc. The real tip is that the (non-canon but still useful) transcript is indexed by search engines. I just used it to recall who the heck "Montanha-Flores" was.



I didn't remember "hearing" the Novo Paolo name in reference to Bubbleopolis.  ;)

Ah, Strip 2174 (Mon 2020-11-23) refers to Bubbleopolis as Novo Paolo.

I didn't remember "hearing" the Novo Paolo name in reference to Bubbleopolis.  ;)

Curiosity on my part.

What does "Novo Paoloans" mean?

Strip 2154 (Mon Oct 05) "Andy Capp" homage

In the third panel we see couple fighting that looks like Andy Capp and his wife.

Andy Capp is a British newspaper comic strip that has also appeared in the US.  I read it quite a lot in newspapers as a kid, so am familiar with it.  Kind of similar to the Lockharts.

Andy Capp wears his cap so they cover his eye and his wife wears a scarf over her hair.

Am surprise (or maybe not) that no one else noted this.

Brazil was so instrumental in the reconstruction post Farnsworth's Folly that I think he's just assuming another city, or other territory, in space named for a city on the ground.

"New Paul" Literally. Sao Paolo is St. Paul.  I think Scott is making a religion joke. :)

Greta Heidelberg looks pissed, almost like someone stole her childhood or something

page=2171 Greta Heidelberg probably is based on Swedish environmental activist and all around snotty little brat, Greta Thunberg.
