The third panel is a picture from the pamphlet that Credenza's reading in panel four.
Photographic reference from the interior of the Sanders Theater used to get the angles right. http://www.boxoffice.harvard.edu/Sanders%20Theatre.jpg
Pews are the hardest thing to get looking right, but I'm really glad I used them. The Gallimaufry theater itself used to be a temple, where there was a big movement in the christian church to convert the hedonistic heathens of Paper island who were just starting to settle in at the time. The success of this movement can be seen in that the church was converted to one of the most popular theaters on the island. The Christian missionaries are still in Paskokii, just in small pocket churches around the corners of the town.

The story behind the middle name Poelorne and baby Danyil himself:
Once upon a time, two friends of mine Sarah and Doodles wrote a story, their two main characters eventually getting married and having children. One of the children of these two characters was Deliza. Sarah and I wanted to do some silly writing on the side of our more 'serious' projects *snort*. Since at the time Mikel wasn't in Arch yet and I had been wanting to experiment with his character we wrote lots of silly scenes together with Mikel and Deliza who to our surprise got married (we're not sure how they managed it without us knowing). We thought they worked so well together that Sarah and I agreed that Deliza should be Mikel's wife in the actual Arch storyline. Thus we have little Danyil here, who comes from not only a proud royal lineage in the world of Archipelago, but a story lineage spanning three separate minds. The names of the original two characters from Sarah and Doodles' story were Lorne and Poe, so Danyil's middle name derives from the names of his grandparents.
The story behind the first name Danyil:
I thought it was cute.
