I just wanted to say that among the many wonderful little bits of flavor throughout the comic, possibly my very favorite is Sizemore summoning a "rock band" of stone golems, complete with umlaut. And the "NWOBHM!" sound effect was the laugh-out-loud moment of the entire book for me. If it was intentional and not just random fun, it was a very nice tie-in with with Stanley's hard-rock motif, showing how pervasive the natural thinkmancies of hierarchy are. (Sizemore doesn't seem the type to Love It Loud without some outside influence.)

GÖLEM needs to play at the beach party.

    Sizemore has a varied taste, apparently, given the fact that he's come up with soft rock golems, acid rock golems, metal golems, etc.

    I'm certain that the NWOBHM "onomatopoeia" is entirely intentional.

    And the "GÖLEM!" panel is just, as they say, full of all sorts of win.
