Differences between the book and comic
There are several differences between the book and the comic,as it has been shortened but also:
- The short appearances of Fasta Benj and P'tang P'tang are reduced to a cameo on one page.
- Brutha dies peacefully in his sleep, rather than while sitting and falling into his breakfast.
- The people of Tsort are depicted more akin to Howondalians than their Trojan/Persian inspiration.
- The Librarian appears at the Monastery in Oi Dong.
