I see this a metaphor for the plight of middle class.
because only the upper class can afford king kong biplane deffences?
Bi-planes are the only planes that work on monsters, thats why the Cloverfield monster survived that bombing
ALS you’re reading too much into it, the fist of an enraged King Kong represent the anger of the middle class. Lashing out at the office buildings which enslave them day after day and tie them hopelessly to the wealthier classes. I think the Biplanes are government regulation.
yeah… i think you’re reading too much into it, it’s a joke about cancerous cells growing at an exponential rate so he would be very big if he had cancer in all his cells, don’t really believe in any metaphors here
Yeah I think you get jokes.
I laughed for a full minute when I read this comment.
i think he is just the embodiment of everyone’s desire to kill a city full of people.
And in conclusion, it WAS beauty who killed the beast.
no, it was a republican convention
I thought King Kong was just about a giant ape… I was wrong…
Man, those are stretchy pants.
you see a beatiful thing like this and all you can think of is pants!?!?!
(That’s what she said)
All I thought was “wicked! Train nunchucks!”
What about the shirt? I have seen stretchy pants before, but never a stretchy shirt.
Those clovers WERE lucky after all
Oh, the continuity!
Clearly the metaphor is the 2nd panel is the explanation of the doctors where he likens the cancer to a giant mutanic growth that will begin wrecking the collective “world” that is the boy. The biplanes are shooting the cancer to kill it. His mental ability is derailed (train) and the woman is his feelings of inadequacy to control the situation. …. Clearly….
And YES its the clover kid, and those where trees!!! The lucky bastard 🙂
I guess those X-ray specs actually helped the boy……
he’s big, or the town is small
Is that Lucas?
This and the clovers, it explains so much!
So having cancer in your entire body makes you hungry enough to take bites out of buildings and water towers? Secret comic ftw.
“In the picture I’m showing you now, the giant version of you represents the cancerous cells in your body. Now those planes that are shooting –
Oh, my mistake.
The picture represents a grave. As you can see, you’re in it.”
It’s the same dude from “luckiest man in the world”
AND HE’S GIANT AND UPROOTING THINGS IN A DISASTER LAND!
If you don’t get this go back and look at my other comment on the “luckiest man in the world” comic… You’ll get it…
