I don't think anyone gave Mr. Simonson much grief for that continuity lapse.
Pag. 30 Panel 3, Pag. 31 Panel 2: Thor destroys the original griffin head of the Sphinx.

I was fully aware of the Sphinx’s established history in the Marvel Universe and I had good reason to ‘contradict’ it. Hopefully the reasons why will become a little clearer when the project I am currently working on sees print.
The Asterix connection was inevitable (a humorous story featuring winged helmets in Egypt) and was neither accidental nor secret. I mentioned it in my story pitch to Marvel and in a few interviews subsequently.
Glad to ear this. Why didn't you said so in your first post?
Would have spare you some of my pedant writing. Still, if I was so wrong, can't fathom the reason why you get so angry...
Well, Alan, in the previous panel Thor summons white/blue lighting to strike the Griffin, and in the third panel there is lighting of that very same colour striking the Sphinx from above. How can I guess that, man? Paulo didn't even stop to notice the Sphinx's head!!!!
If you wanted to make that point clear, the lighting from the Griffin's exploxion should have been coloured differently from Thor's and maybe a close up on the griffin would have been needed.
By the way, in a somewhat related topic I've to comment that I don't think that your current use of "diagonal panels" helps storytelling at all and would be glad if you return to a more classic plage design.
