Murky World [II]! Cross References

Richard Corben tends to alter his old stories, remake them or make cross references in between.

In the case of “Murky World [II]!” (2017) he made multiple connection to his other stories:

The first row Den #4 (1988), lower “Murky World [II]”

Four mid frames on Part 1, pg 8 were mirrored from similar frames in “Den #4” (1988).

“Murky World [II]”, Part 9 (pgs 3-6) left, and “Tower of Ho” (pgs 1-4) right
“Murky World [II]”, Part 9 (pg 8) left, and “Tower of Ho” (pgs 5) right
“Murky World [II]” (top), and “Tower of Ho” (bottom)
“Murky World [II]”, Part 10 (pgs 1, 2, 4, 5), and “Tower of Ho” (pgs 5-8)

Parts 9 and 10 used entire layouts (on same frames) from Shadows in the Mist, Part 2(2): “Tower of Ho!” (1998), from several frames.

The end of “Murky World [II]”, Part 11 and the end of “Murky World [I]”

The end of Part 11 was almost exactly same as the end of Murky World [I], only the protagonist was switched. The speaking lines were not always the same.

“Murky World [II]”, Part 12 and the beginning of “Murky World [I]”

The entire Part 12 was almost exactly same as the beginning of Murky World [I]. There was only four additional frames in the very beginning of the chapter.

“Murky World [II]”, Part 13 and entire Part 2 of “Murky World [I]”
The first frame of the last page “Murky World [II]” compared to the first frame of the last page of 8 pages entirety from “Murky World [I]”.

The entire Part 13 was as close to 8 pages of Murky World [I] as possible. All new pages were clearly wider than the B&W version, including minor extra art work on them. The first frame of last page was altered a lot.

“Murky World [II]”, Part 14 and part of the end of Part 2 of “Murky World [I]”

The 14th chapter of “Murky World [II]” has got only four pages similar with “Murky World [I]”. There are similar panels but a lot redrawn as well. The 3rd page is mostly new and in the 4th the mid strip is new. The giant girl is now nude after sleep. The last 4 pages are new but story wise it went back to the beginning.
