"Gremlin Gulliver's Travels"


Issue#95: "Gremlin Gulliver's Travels"

Barnaby realises that the Mole-Men are getting out of control...  

Notes and References:

The title of this issue comes from the satirical fantasy novel "Gulliver's Travels" written by Jonathan Swift in 1726. The novel is a pardoy travel-memoir of Lemuel Gulliver as he travels to the strange lands of Lilliput (a land ruled by tiny people), Brobdingnag (populated by giants) and Houyhnhnmland (a land where talking Horses are the dominant species)

The issues takes it's title from "Gulliver's Travels" because it mimics the famous scene where Gulliver is being tied down by the tiny folk of Lilliput. In the issue, Loaker is being tied down by the Mole-Men.

The Mole-men, who returned in Issue#94: "The Occupied Garden", make their presence known by tying down Loaker. Their strange manner and culture was previously hinted at in Issue#10: "Barnaby and Loaker VS The Mole-Men" where they could be seen worshipping Barnaby and Loaker's time capsule.

Beauregarde continues to show his frustration at the return of the Mole-Men.

Barnaby decides to do something about the Mole-Men, the conclusion to this will be seen next issue.
