47: Counter-Red Spiders
Title text: I hope we can stop them
In previous comics, red spiders are seen navigating similar landscapes. Here, humanoid stick figures are standing on top of each other to reach some place above the top of the comic, in a similar manner to how the red spiders navigate. These stick figures must be extremely light, or gravity must be really weak there, because it is extremely unlikely or even impossible to have a stack of humans that tall.
The full series of Red Spiders comics:
- 8: Red Spiders, the first one.
- 43: Red Spiders 2, in which the spiders begin building.
- 47: Counter-Red Spiders, this one.
- 126: Red Spiders Cometh, in which the spiders attack a city.
- 427: Bad Timing, in which, in a style more typical to xkcd, the spiders attack a couple in the middle of a serious relationship discussion in a hot-air balloon.
- 442: xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel, in which it appears briefly in the 14th panel crawling over a cube.
- [A stack of stick figures, standing on each others shoulders, extends from the bottom of the frame to the top. Cuboids hang in the air.]
- The counter-red-spider offensive begins...

Any reason there is a "th" in the date? --Quicksilver (talk) 15:29, 25 August 2013 (UTC)
I wish people where identical in mass to as they are in this comic but still the same size... climbing arround effortlessly would be awsome...--TheTimeBandit (talk) 21:24, 30 October 2017 (UTC)
