This Is the World’s Largest Comic Strip
We Have Done the Impossible and That Makes Us Mighty
The Guinness people do not mess around when it comes to setting world records. When a bunch of French students sought to steal the world record for the world’s largest comic strip from a group of Indian artists, they had some parameters to meet. What you will find after the jump is a comic strip that is 1,000 meters long (previous record was 889 meters), displayed by France’s Rhone River. It took “11 writers, 111 designers, a ton of students, 250 markers, a stack of paper which weighed 800 kilograms” and it is officially the Guinness World Record holder. See the progress after the jump.

And now, the finished product on display:

We’d post more here, but it’s the world’s largest comic strip and there are 100 panels. That’s a lot.
