The web has given a medium to artists who otherwise never would have had the opportunity to publish. I’m sure that if Randall Munroe had approached any newspaper or syndicate with his stick figure drawings that xkcd never would have seen the light of day, yet I find it a great comic. Here’s one of my favorites xkcd’s about adulthood.
And in case you’re wondering, Munroe says that the title doesn’t stand for anything. According to his “About” page:
“It’s not actually an acronym. It’s just a word with no phonetic pronunciation — a treasured and carefully-guarded point in the space of four-character strings.”
Xkcd updates Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
