This (the 7 headed hermaphroditic spider symbol) needs to become a real thing so I can buy it. I’m ready!
All right, I’m taking bets that somewhere on the internet, this symbol already exists, completely independent of the comic, and “Tallman” had never seen it.
Hmm… Lolth? Nope: one head, female, eats others’ hearts.
Wait a sec… you mean there’s billions of sentient beings in the Hollow Earth? It’s gonna get kind of crowded soon. Unless they’re okay living with the penguins.
That sounds incredibly cumbersome to turn into a stylized symbol for neck wearing and wall hanging.
Challenge… accepted? Oh god no.
Not stylized and robbed of its meaning enough. How are we supposed to turn this into easy-to-digest pop religion that speaks to predetermined prejudices? Or fit it on soda cups for a religious cult masquerading as a chicken franchise?
Suddenly: requests for jewelry.
I cannot imagine a seven-headed spider seeing as the head and thorax aren’t separate…
