This is purely coincidental, I'm sure, but I just noticed the resemblance
between the Miracle of Apu Punchau and the means by which Tintin, Captain
Haddock and Professor Calculus are saved in Herge's PRISONERS OF THE SUN.  
Incidentally, the previous adventure to the PRISONERS OF THE SUN is THE SECRET
OF THE UNICORN/RED RACKHAM'S TREASURE, concerning the treasure of the ship
Unicorn, hidden under St. John's Cross.  The chapter before Apu Punchau in
URTH ends with a mention of two constellations:  the Unicorn and the Cross.
