Visual References

Postby No one in particular » Sat Oct 27, 2012 5:04 pm

I know that most of the references and nods get pointed out and shared over in the Reactions threads, but they're also mixed in with a bunch of cross-talk, speculation, and well... reactions.

I figured a thread that's a little more focused would make it easier to check and update the wiki from.

So for LIAB 94:
Panel 3:
    David Blaine is leaning in
    Broom Hilda is short and green
    Tracy
    Sean Mattox
    Predictamancers
    ??? Off the shoulder coat guy ???
    ??? Shorty with a crown and scepter ???
    Saturday from Cucumber Quest has bunny ears
Panel 9:
    ??? Someone in blue ???
    ??? Someone in green with a mask ???
    ??? Someone in red ???
Panel 13:
    Aang (or possibly just an air nomad) from Avatar: The Last Airbender
    ??? Someone else in green ???

Anyone know who unknowns are?
"Are you always so pessimistic?"
"Not at all. I saved it for my last battle."

Slowly working on compiling an image link of possible matches with each mage presented. This is all I got so far. Will add more as time permits (and as we get better shots of them).

Ah, many thanks! I'm adding to the wiki now.

Where do you add these references? Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places, but I can't find them.

For the moment, I'm just tacking them on to the bottom of the wiki page for the strip, under the "Notes" heading.

Under the dialogue transcriptions, see?
"Are you always so pessimistic?"
"Not at all. I saved it for my last battle."

Any thoughts on IPTSF 49?

Olive isn't supposed to be dressed as the White Witch or anything, right?

Quick google image search points to no (might be older version?). Also I don't think that is Katara in panel 9. Hair and skin color seem wrong for either version of her.

IPTSF 50:

Dorothy, field of stupor-inducing flowers, yellow brick road & image: Wizard of Oz
Blue flowers: A Scanner Darkly, maybe?
The two apple trees mingling... is that something?
"Are you always so pessimistic?"
"Not at all. I saved it for my last battle."

LIAB 95:
Is it just me, or does Lord Downer resemble Jack Webb?

I think it might just be the stoic, duty-oriented snark, but another part of me thinks "Lines on his face? That's not generic! Who is he?"
"Are you always so pessimistic?"
"Not at all. I saved it for my last battle."

IPTSF 52:
Wanda's dressed up like Leeloo from The Fifth Element.
"Are you always so pessimistic?"
"Not at all. I saved it for my last battle."

Been a little busy, haven't been paying attention to this like I should...

IPTSF Text 56:
Olive is really rocking a Galadriel look in the image.

Aside from the Cameo in LIAB 98 by Chris Miller, aka Firewheels and the Hard Rock Cafe logo, I don't think there's been any other visual references made in the past few weeks... anyone care to let me know if I'm wrong? I'm prone to missing poses & tableaus.
