NOTES

Original art.

Welcome to a Get a Life! miniseries which took us a long time to translate.

The title is a literal translation of the Italian title, which is a joe about a manner of speach: "failing to draw a spider from a hole" means "not being able to obtain anything from a complex situation".
In this case, the "hole" is the so-called "Hollow Earth": you may know this weird concept from some of the nutjob theories the Nazis believed in; it's practically the idea that our planet is an habitable hollow sphere with a small sun at its center, and whose internal surfaces are populated by various lifeforms.
(Well, some of the Nazis thought that OUR world was actually inside a sphere, and that geography had to be rethinked. Also, Jules Verne came up with the idea of a world inside the world long before them).

The Slumpodon is a mammoth-whale hybrid with amphibious abilities. Long time Martin Mystère readers will recognize it as the first clue about what classic adventure this webcomic is connected to.

For the first time in the series, the main character does not belong to the official Martin Mystère continuity. More about him later.

Carbonite 60 is a made-up concept, but also a reference to "carbon 60" (Fullerene).
