This comic just keeps going and going, it must have taken like a year to draw.

A friend posted part of it on facebook, and hour later, i still can't find that part.

I've been reading that it's the largest comic ever.

From some website:

quote:
At 165888 x 79872 pixels, or 1.3 terapixels, the image would fill the screens of 4212 iPads with retina displays in an 81 x 52 grid. The grayscale image is 12.3 gigabytes in size. If it was printed at a size big enough that you could see the people, it would cover a football end zone. And as you might expect in a Randall Munroe comic, there are little treasures to be discovered all over the place. I don’t want to spoil the fun, but yes, Waldo’s in there too.

Minecraft reference spotted. sssssssssssSH.

I think its an avant garde point that this is just a microcosm of the world we're in, all those people having adventures all at the sametime is also in real life.

But inaccurate. Nothing exists unless I am the one experiencing it.
