Comic #4229

1 Mike: He takes Mirkwood home.
1 Hopper: “Mirkwood”?
1 Lucas: It’s from Lord of the Rings.
2 Dustin: The Hobbit!
2 Lucas: It doesn’t matter!
2 Dustin: He asked!
3 Lucas: It’s the same setting! And Mirkwood is mentioned 42 times, compared to just 28 in The Hobbit!
3 Dustin: The Hobbit came first!
4 Hopper: They say getting evidence out of drug dealers is tough, but no one ever mentions nerds...
4 Dustin: And they do have wings!
4 Lucas: Do not!

The numbers are - of course - accurate, according to The Lord of the Rings Project keyword search. At the moment the site is printing a bunch of PHP code warnings when you search for text, so it may stop working at any point due to a code upgrade. To avoid any issues with future verification of the numbers, I have copied the search output here (with the error messages removed):

Verifying these statistics with a careful read through of all the books is left as an exercise for the reader.
