Probably the FIRST time that the Crown of Thorns Starfish (Acanthaster planci) has EVER been shown in comic books!! I've written about the Crown of Thorns before....here..
and some cool video here.
Acanthaster is shown to be sort of a monstrous eating machine....screaming "Foooooood.."" which is uh..probably not too far from the truth.. But it DOES get to chase around those dumb little orange fish! ha! Take that vertebrates!
and..it looks like the artist actually did their homework and did a "picture-real" rendition of at least one color variant (A. planci is actually highly variable in color)
The mouth left a little to be desired...
with the BEST line EVER!
"Well, the other fish tend to think we're a little strange..."
Could ANY sentence summarize the starfish (and the starfish worker) any better???
