Dane Martin’s Debbie Duck makes a cameo and a shot from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is recreated. Can you find the other hidden things?

We don’t have cable tv at my house, so I was unaware of Adventure Time when it first came out. Then I went to visit family in the Philippines. The little kids were trying to get me to watch, and I resisted at first, thinking it was some sort of “My Little Pony” type show. But then the older kids were watching it, and both boys and girls were watching it. Then one day, little Kelly Natalia came and took me by the hand and said “Uncle Dave, you come watch Princess Bubblegum, OK?”, and I can’t say no because Kelly is such a little sweetie pie. Well, the kids in the Philippines know a great thing when they see it! Thanks Kelly!

I’ve waited six seasons for the narrow world of the “chattering class" to catch up to the Frederator/CN production of Pendleton Ward's Adventure Time. And though our friends at Cartoon Network appreciated the show enough to put it on their network, they never really understood that AT is, frame for frame, one of the truly great shows on television.
Of course I’m biased, and a complete soft touch, but which of the “big” modern dramas accomplishes their depth without having a completely unredeemable hero. Adventure Time is easily the equal of Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified, and the others, but Finn, its star, is a kind, generous, happy man/boy. Just like his creator. Emily Nussbaum in today’s New Yorker totally understands what you already know: “It’s beautiful and funny and stupid and smart, in about equal parts, as well as willing to explore uneasy existential questions, like what it means to go on when the story you’re in has ended.” 
Read it, nod your head, and please pass it on to all those people who look at you blankly.

ESCAPE FROM CUBICLELAND guest artist #7 revealed!
OkiraMyth
OkiraMyth is an emcee, instrumentalist, muralist, graff artist, illustrator, etc. He also happens to be one of my best friends and biggest inspirations in art and music. Okira was a definite factor in influencing my post-childhood love for and pursuit of comics. I might not even be doing this if it wasn’t for our hours and hours of comics talk and trips to local shops.
I’m grateful that OkiraMyth painted something for my book.
Visit OkiraMyth at: okiramyth.bandcamp.com
I am in the fortunate position of having some talented friends who have agreed to lend some guest artwork to the print version of Escape from Cubicleland. I’ll be posting updates with previews of their contributions and more about each amazing artist.
Escape from Cubicleland is soon to be printed (thanks to some generous Kickstarter backers), and will soon be available in my online store.
