NOTES

Original Art.

The Nazi-controlled region of the Hollow Earth seen in "Al centro della Terra" features a north-european landscape, with Mammoths as a good measure.
In panel 1 it is noted that the small "internal" sun of the Hollow Earth is red, and possibly less warm than Earth's sun, thus explaining the northern flora and fauna.

In panel 2, Torn points out that, as seen in the aforementioned "Al centro della Terra" (Martin Mystère n. 115 bis), natives of the Hollow Earth cannot crossover for a long time.
In that comic, an unfortunate woman known as Xenia tried that, only to vanish before Martin Mystère's eyes as soon as she reached Earth.
Only the Nazi Soldiers who ruled on the Hollow Earth could afford to return to our world permantently, possibly because they were not indigenous to the Hollow Earth.

The plant-like creatures in the last panel are known as Macroamarantias (model sheet by Marco Maccagni).
They are an original concept for our webcomic, but the "fangs" on their forehead reveal that they are related to another lifeform from the Hollow Earth... an entity that was shown in a Martin Mystère issue that for now will go unnamed.

The body structure of the MacroAmarantie is based on Marvel's Man Thing (or DC Comic's Swamp Thing).

Coming soon: more Atlantean surprises are hiding in the Hollow Earth-- Androids! Mad priests!
How will Torn fare against such odds?
