Episode 6 is fairly difficult to analyze. I've made some solid connections, but I don't see a coherent stream of clues like I did in previous episodes. I think the best thing to do is examine the comic one page at a time and see what we come up with. I've started rebuilding some of the pages/panels from the comic by taking different shots from the video and piecing them together in photoshop.
Here's the cover:
There is an obvious connection between this comic and most team-up style Marvel Comics. For instance:
Notice the hero head box in the upper left hand corner. Having read through some of those comics, I don't see anything linking the cover to a specific comic book.
Black Tom looks like he is an position to deal a Karate Kid style crane-kick:
Mulligan is holding a hamburger. Knowing that there is a Segar tombstone later, this seems to be a Whimpy reference.
Notice the buttons on The Captain and Crothers. These change in each panel. Here it almost looks like Morse Code, but it's unclear how you would read it.
