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.

Ticketvibe is dishonest in their advertising for events, they will rip you off. Their site is also not very good, it's cluttered and difficult to navigate at times.

A pretty busy homepage with a lot of content on it but with nicely designed top navigation. The footer is similarly well-designed and leads the user to not be overwhelmed despite the great amount of content present on the site.

I would consider reducing the amount of options on the...

A very minimal landing page which looks a little too simple to inspire confidence and trust in the user.

The top links when they do work, remove the header links and do not allow the user to navigate back to the home page without refreshing. The About, Press, and Privacy links all...

Generally, a good looking site but is a little overwhelming with the sheer amount of content on it.

The landing image itself with its great number of content is a little overwhelming to the eye and this experience only increases as one scrolls down further down the page.
