The incubus picture in Abby's bedroom (18:4) is "The Nightmare" (1781) by Henry Fuseli. Sigmund Freud had a copy in his apartment. We got a glimpse of it in issue 33, page 20.

1:2 ST is accompanied by Deadman and the Phantom Stranger, who fought by his side last issue.

1:5 Deadman percieves the Supreme Being to be the goddess Rama Kushna.

5:1 The big thing was described as a poltergeist when ST visited this realm in Annual #2, 9:5.

5:3 Deadman met this guy in issue 49, page 9.

7:5 Deanna French hired Abby at Elysium Lawns in issue #25.

8:1 Link from 7:6 = "dragging me down"/"down to earth"

9:1 Link from 8:5 = "mine alone"/"alone"

10:1 I asked artist Rick Veitch about the address he said "4318 Finley" was the address of a friend of his and Bissette's from Louisiana whom they knew from the Kubert School. "We slipped it in early and kept it going as an in joke." Abby's address is also seen in issues #68 and #83.

10:6 Abby's husband Matt has been in a coma since issue #31, although his car wreck was in issue #26.

10:5 I have no references for a Wanda Fry.

11:7 Constantine refers to events from the previous few issues.

14:2 "Peter Pan" is a real bus company.

12:5 Gordon Sumner is the real name of the singer Sting, whose image Constantine is based upon. This is in the tradition of the "Pogo" comic strip in which the artist put his friends names on the rafts.

17:1 The "Testors" (as seen in the graffitti) were a punk band of the late 1970's.

17:6 My guess is that what sounds like "Staple your arm" is actually "Stay where you are."

18:3 If that wall calendar is for October (as Swampy says here) 1985, then the date that is circled is the 10th.

19:4 Harvey Bullock is a supporting character from the Batman comics.

21:1 These words were spoken to ST by the Parliament of Trees in issue 47.

22:4 Mountain is shaped as ST's head

COMMENT: In 2002, DC Comics collected issues 51-56 in the trade book "Swamp Thing: Earth to Earth".
