Dubai has a long and proud history of building the world’s biggest everythings, a fact we have been quick to lampoon on multiple nonconsecutive occasions*. Now it looks like Saudi Arabia, which up until now has been (for want of a better phrase) “Dubai lite” in the big buildings department, is going to rise up and claim the title for building the biggest ever for themselves.
Incidentally, I might as well use this space to revel in my own design cleverness. That last panel logo is a combination of Japanese and Arabic; when translated, it does correctly read “Tengen Toppa Kingdom Tower”.
*We even referred to Dubai as “saudy arabia” in that second comic for extra-poor quality. We’re prophets.
