Ref: One, two, three.
There's a lot of names mentioned in this strip. Instead of linking to them all, or asking you to go back and study Chapter 65: Mohkadun (there won't be a quiz!) I'll say this.You DO NOT need to know all the characters and events referenced to follow the story and I'll try to provide more pertinent links on a case-by-case basis as the story unfolds. But Chapter 65 is at your fingertips should you like!

Whelp, this wraps 'Lost and Found' and we found a LOT. So many odd characters from storties from years ago. This is a big story that ties much together. I will do my best to include all information needed for this story in the story, but will keep putting ref-links in case you all want a trip down memory lane. Onward and sideways!

Hey all! I wanted you guys to know Ozzid has shown up in previous comics from many years back. In the panels I drew him, he looked different in every single panel and I missed that he had a tail until recently. Some of you have figured out where Ozzid shows up, others perhaps have not but it will be explained. So Ozzid needed a tail, and now Ozzid has one.

OK, so Maloufo's nipples are weird, his specific story is not needed for Immortal King, and the fourth panel 'break of the fourth wall' is my attempt of self deprecating humor over my inability to NOT make you guys feel like you have to read a decade of comics to understand what's going on! ;)  Speaking of things you don't need to know:
Ref: The Summoner and Maloufo.
Another neat thing you don't need to know for this story is that summoner is Riff's great-great-great-thousands-of-years-over grandma. It's TRUE!

NOTE: "parapox" is a genus of viruses, in the family Poxviridae, in the subfamily Chordopoxvirinae. However "para-pox" is a virus from prolonged exposure to a space-time contradiction. It's important to understand that para-pox always means a paradox, but a paradox can occur without any cases of para-pox. The more you know...

Just a head's-up: The Bug has very limited resources to know whats going on in the world. The Bug can dream walk with those close to the book, and reach out to those directly trying to reach out to it. But for the sake of speed I'm improving the Bug's ability to (educatedly) guess in this comic.
