Webcomics , Comedy

xkcd is a webcomic created by Randall Munroe. The comic's tagline describes it as "a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language." Munroe mentions on the comic's website that the name of the comic is not an acronym but "just a word with no phonetic pronunciation". The subject matter of the comic varies from statements on life and love to mathematical and scientific in-jokes. Some strips feature simple humor or pop-culture references. Although it has a cast of stick figures, the comic occasionally features landscapes, intricate mathematical patterns such as fractals (for example, strip No. 17 "What If" shows an Apollonian gasket), intricate graphs and charts, or imitations of the style of other cartoonists (as during "Parody Week").

xkcd is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 2.5 License. New comics are added three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, although on some occasions they have been updated every weekday.

Since July 2012, there has been a branch of xkcd called "xkcd What-If", updated every Tuesday. These attempt to answer unusual reader-submitted science questions in a humorousóthough mathematically soundóway, in a format more like an article rather than a traditional comic strip.

The sheer effort and detail this guy pours into his webcomic is incredible. He does SO MUCH research, and puts SO MUCH thought into his bigger efforts, that you can literally spend hours diving into them.

And in between, he's just got hilarious ideas and great writing. What's not to love?

Deep thoughts from stick figures. A study in both the existential and crude. Scientific dissections, social commentary, misnomers, humor, and heartbreak.

Do yourself a favor and visit.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.

I like this company. Their professional staff and advisers always provide quality services. Booking and related to it processes take not more than several business days, that's why I can consult them right before my trips. Recommend it!
