  • The giant monster destroying the city is reminscent of the Kaiju genre of films, including Godzilla.

panel 3

  • First appearance of Apex. Apex appears to be much larger than the earlier crab-monster. As seen more clearly on the next page, Apex appears to have multiple smaller giant monsters coming out of it, somewhat like the centre in Darwyn Cooke’s The New Frontier.
  • This sets up a page-turn reveal.
