  • Where does it say that the graphic novel takes place in Carlsbad? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:38, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
    • The Cavern Theater, the Pecos River and ESPECIALLY the Carlsbad Caverns are dead giveaways. The Cavern Theater is the building that tipped me off and confirmed my suspicion that it was the Carlsbad Caverns (hence the name "Cavern" Theater). Also, the Carlsbad Caverns are famous in the United States. It's an extremely famous landmark, just like the Washington Monument and Pyramid Arena shown in the same comic. Most of the GN is in Carlsbad. It's also good to note that Carlsbad is in New Mexico and Alex Woolsly was supposed to go to Albuquerque. NileQT87 21:51, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
      • The Carslbad Caverns aren't in Carlsbad, NM. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:54, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
        • You might want to check Wikipedia, because they certainly are. I recommend that you research before you keep nominating it because you simply don't know. [[1]] NileQT87 21:58, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
          • The article you linked to says that the caverns are 18 miles away from Carlsbad. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:00, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
            • And the town that Alex Woolsly is running away from agents in is Carlsbad (see: Cavern Theater--that's a specific location). Also, there's a reason that the Carlsbad Caverns are called CARLSBAD. The town is just the populated center of the town. Carlsbad Caverns are in a National Park just outside of town, but it's still part of Carlsbad. You should also note that the city includes Carlsbad Caverns as part of their "points of interest".

              • I'm not sure why you're being rude. I certainly did look up where the caverns are, and they simply aren't in Carlsbad. They are near the town, but not in the town. They are about a twenty minute drive from the town. The page needs to be changed so it only talks about the town, and not the caverns. The caverns can be mentioned in the notes. Please don't be so rude, and please don't remove afd tags until the topic is properly discussed. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:12, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
                • Sorry if you perceive rudeness, but here is a quote from the Carlsbad Wikipedia page itself that disputes your claim:

"The re-discovery of Carlsbad Caverns (then known as "Bat Cave") by local cowboys in 1901 and the subsequent establishment of Carlsbad Caverns National Park on May 14, 1930 gained the town of Carlsbad substantial recognition."

In the Southwest, a national park doesn't make it a different location from the city that it is a part of. It's not in a different city. It's ALL part of Carlsbad. It's just 18 miles outside of the populated town. You must remember that the Southwest has a lot of desert. The closest town is the location. And the Carlsbad Caverns were named for the town for which it is a part of. NileQT87 22:17, 26 September 2009 (EDT)

    • I think this article is worth keeping. --Radicell 07:30, 27 September 2009 (EDT)
      • I also think that the article is worth keeping. And as far as I percieve Nile is also right about Caverns being within the periphery/bounderies of Carlsbad, New Mexico.
        However, I totally agree with RGS, that we should definitely not be rude to each other, as here we are to serve and share information with each other. And for those who cannot "percieve" their own rudeness, I think that they should take a look at themselves and try to learn how to speak in a more humble way and especially without reflecting ego. Frases like; because you simply don't know are signs of ego and are easily felt like/generally accepted as rudeness. I always avoid to construct such sentences. And I apologise when I feel like I might have hurt anyone with my words. Just a friendly thought. Thank you. --Janrodrigo 08:04, 27 September 2009 (EDT)
        • Thanks, Jan. Admin, that makes sense if the address is listed as Carlsbad. I'll remove the afd. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 09:21, 27 September 2009 (EDT)
