"Ground Control To Barnaby Banks"


Issue#98: "Ground Control To Barnaby Banks"

Barnaby has a disappointing phone call conversation with the Space Camp...

Notes and References:

The title of this issue comes from the 1969 David Bowie song "Space Oddity" which appeared on the album "David Bowie". The song's opening and repeated line is "Ground Control To Major Tom". The song tells the story of a fictional astronaut called Major Tom who is mentioned in other songs including "Ashes To Ashes" and "Hallo Spaceboy".

Barnaby's drama with the Ammon Hils Space Camp continues from last week's issue.

Barnaby mentions Ammon Hills again, a neighbouring rival town to Moloch Falls.

The space helmet that Barnaby was wearing in Issue#97: "Gremlins In Space" appears on the kitchen table in this issue and as part of the fully realised costume that appears in the header.

Beauregarde appears and is his usual grumpy self in the final panel of this issue. The misanthropic bunny last appeared in Issue#95: "Gremlin Gulliver's Travels".
