Synopsis for "Oil & Water"

  • Synopsis not yet written.


Notes

  • The epigraphs to this story are from The Witnesses by W. H. Auden and Generation of Swine by Hunter S. Thompson.
  • The coast guards watch the movie Creature from the Black Lagoon. Although not shown in the comic story, the boat in this movie has the same name as their boat, Rita. Additionally, the character of Ricou Mendez shares the first name with Ricou Browning who played the Gill-man and Antonio Moreno was another actor in this movie.
  • Sir Gawain appears again in Dai Thomas's visions. However, this time, he is explicitly named in the quote from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Moreover, Kate McClellan describes Thomas to be possessed because he was saying the lines from the book out loud and looked younger. This is the first description of a physical manifestation of Sir Gawain in Dai Thomas.
  • With Sir Gawain beginning to manifest himself in the real world, his internal monolog is no more present. The rest of the color-coding remains the same:
    • lightblue background: epigraphs and this time a different excerpt, from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in Brian Stone's translation (mostly from Fit II, selected edited excerpts from Stanza 39 and beginning of Stanza 40);
    • yellow background: Dai Thomas's internal monolog.
  • While not explicitly stated in the story, the quoted excerpt from Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is about Guinevere, who can be seen in the last panel of the vision in Sir Gawain's arms. The next panel depicts Kate in Dai's arms in exact same posture.
  • Later, wounded Dai Thomas, in seeming delirium, quotes from the book again, this time from Fit III, Stanza 63. When Thomas confronts the sea monster, he quotes from Fit IV, Stanza 88, which describes the meeting between Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
