Surprise, surprise - this page contains the world's most obscure Transformers reference! Can you spot it? No? Well, I'm not surprised: even a hard-core TF nerd would be hard-pressed to recognise such a sneaky, sneaky reference. Believe it or not, it is a single component of the nonsense-talk spouted by the Trogdolyte in the first panel; in particular the *word* 'Lobarelli!' Y'see, in the season 2 episode 'Dinobot island, part 1', a time-warp disgorges a gang of also-nonsense-spouting barbarians (riding wooly mammoths! Another link to my crossover story!) One of the marauders smashes in the window of a jewellery store to plunder its contents, rumbling his satisfaction with an enthusiastic - what else? - 'Lobarelli!' Now you know, and knowing is.... well, not all that life-changing, frankly....
Back in the comic itself, The latter panels reveal that the Cryptida gang and Explorers inc haven't come here unassisted - waiting for them on the beach (which seems to have a thriving community of salt-tolerant giant mushrooms instead of palm trees) are their allies Soren, Professor Pod and Cosmosian entymologist Cuthbert Applebee; who last showed up in the 2012 Explorers inc. Adventure pack story, and is pretty much an honorary member of Explorers Inc., because why not? Soren, interestingly, seems to have brought along his special double-pronged harpoon for the occasion, presumably due to the double-amounts of danger they were expecting to encounter.... and not at all because I drew it in before actually checking in the Cryptida archives to see what it looked like first. Whoever suggested that? They're crazy! Crazy, I tell you!

I faintly remember some old animated series about the Hulk were there were also mammoth-riding cavemen in one episode...
Once again, a lovely crossover-page, irrespective of the number of prongs on Sören's harpoon! ;-D
