Continuing with the movie references in this storyline, which have so far included Raiders of the Lost Ark and A.I. among others, today’s strip gives a shout-out to, arguably, the most referenced movie series of all, the Star Wars saga. Specifically, The Empire Strikes Back, but if you’re reading this strip, chances are you knew that already.

Also wanted to give a shout-out to the inspiration for the Cornfather, Michael Cornacchia, who just happens to be celebrating his birthday today. Happy Birthday, buddy!
