NOTES

As detailed in GaL #14, "The Music Of The Spheres", Iapetus was in the area when the Spheres entered for the first time our Solar System.

Panel 2 is about how those Spheres failed, once they reached Earth. But the technical reasons for this failure are reported in GaL #14, "The Music Of The Spheres".
It's a factor that was overlooked by the Krhyll, that is the "marketing managers" of the Consortium. The whole "arrogant managers" thing is our attempt at turning the Khryll into a satirical metaphor, just as Swift did with his own original creations.

In panel 3 the Elohim descend on Earth, in order to fix the disaster caused by the incompetent Khryll.
The same event is mentioned in the last panel of page 5 of GaL #14, "The Music Of The Spheres", but it is not shown (unless you can really enlarge the eyes of the hominid in the last panel).

The arrival of the Elohim on Earth is chronicled in "La vendetta di Loki" (Martin Mystère nn.244-245-246).
Could it be that an untold battle between them and the Khryll took place in that distant age?

The abuse of the Spheres perpetrated by the Khryll is still part of our not too subtle metaphor: too many marketing managers turned their company's assets into their personal properties.

The real secret of the Khryll and the reason for Jehro being banished on Earth are finally known. Of course, Jehro kept that reason for himself after reaching Earth, because he knew that otherwise the Khryll would simply have annihilated our planet.
