This is the second-published comic containing red spiders. According to the title text, it was drawn years before the first-published comic with red spiders.

The full series of Red spiders:


  • Original quote from Randall: "And lo, they still have six legs."
  • Original comment from Randall: "This is the original that inspired the other one. It's my favorite of the two."
  • This is the fortieth comic originally posted to livejournal. The previous was 38: Apple Jacks. The next was 39: Bowl


[Red spiders, with round appendages at the end of each of their six legs, are seen navigating an environment of blocks and other geometric constructions. One spider appears to be holding a block down for another spider to climb onto to help it up, or they might be lifting the block together.]
