XKCD's 'Click and Drag' Comic is Amazing

By | Boston Daily |

Fans of the comic xkcd, drawn by Massachusetts-based illustrator Randall Munroe, found a treat when they arrived on the site yesterday: A huge, interactive comic titled “Click and Drag” that allowed users to explore an entire world of Munroe’s creation.¬†It was quickly dubbed “endlessly awesome” and “his coolest webcomic ever” on Twitter, it’s already got its own Tumbleblog, and I lost a good 15 minutes exploring the world (before finding a blown up version of the illustration online). And, after scrolling around for quite some time, I came across a tiny, bespectacled stick-figure of Elizabeth Warren, hanging from the rigging of a ship’s mast.

Looking at the whole canvas, zoom in here:

And you’ll find a ship:

Girl at the top of the left mast: Elizabeth, why are you climbing the rigging?
Warren: Forget this rigging. The whole system is rigged against the middle class and families trying to climb out of poverty!
Girl: …Ok, but for real, what are you doing on this boat?

 

It’s a play on her oft-used line that “people feel like the system is rigged against them,” one that we’ll likely hear in tonight’s debate. One wonders whether being immortalized in a webcomic will translate to votes.
