"Do Gremlins Dream of Demonic Sheep?"


Issue#88: "Do Gremlins Dream of Demonic Sheep?"

Loaker has some uneventful dreams...

Notes and References:

The title of this issue is a reference to Philip K. Dick's 1968 sci-fi novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?". The novel is set in a post apocalyptic world where a bounty hunter must hunt down six rogue androids. The novel explores what it means to be human and the blurred lines between machine and man in this futuristic world.

The novel was eventually the basis for the 1982 movie Blade Runner directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer.

Two Feigenbaum related objects appear in Loaker's room in the first panel-

 1. a drawing of Feigenbaum by Loaker

 2. A teddy that looks similar to Feigenbaum. The teddy or one that resembles it originally appeared in issue#66: "The Grandfather"

Loaker discovers that his dreamworld is quite dull and boring unlike Barnaby's dreams about zombies and the Wizard of Oz.
