- Issue #09 "In the Lair of the Virgin Eater" is the same comic book that is on the cover of all Grognak the Barbarian comics in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
Behind the scenesEdit
The issue entitled "Cometh the Trickster" is a reference to Thief: The Dark Project, a stealth game in which the primary antagonist was named the Trickster, with a very similar physical appearance. The pictured scene mimics the cutscene in which the Trickster first reveals his true nature. The issue is notably found in a recreation of Lead Designer Emil Pagliarulo's childhood bedroom. Before being hired by Bethesda, Pagliarulo was a level designer on Thief's Gold edition, as well as its sequel, designing some of Thief II's most popular missions.
