The map shown in frame 2901


The map shown in the comic, overlaid on a modern map.

The comic is located near southern France, at a time in the future when the Mediterranean Sea has receded and is beginning to be refilled by the Atlantic Ocean in an event similar to the Zanclean Flood. The location was confirmed in the maps shown in frame 2901 and 2902.

The castle inhabited by the Beanie People is likely the Château d'If given the location marked for it on the maps in 2901 and 2902, as well as the Beanie Leader's comments in 2908 and 2909 that reveal the castle was once an island and will be an island again when the sea refills.
