Asterios Polyp - I can't leave it alone doctor!

A cracked record I may be but this brave soul surely deserves a mention. He's attempted to unpick as much of the book as he has the strength for and given the world study notes for the inevitable time it makes its way onto the English A Level syllabus. How's this for an example:
Page 6, Panel 1. This is Asterios Polyp. The name, Asterios, is probably derivative of the word “asterism.” An asterism is a pattern of stars seen in Earth's sky that is not a constellation (such as Ursa Major). Their mostly simple shapes and few stars make these patterns easy to identify (which Asterios Polyp likes), and thus particularly useful to those just learning to orient themselves when viewing the night sky.

Hat's off sir.
