  • xkcd, sometimes stylized as XKCD, is a webcomic created by Randall Munroe. The comic's tagline describes it as a "A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language". Munroe states 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, intricate graphs and charts, or imitations of the style of other cartoonists. 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, which answers unusual reader-submitted science questions in a light-hearted but scientifically grounded way. What If? is presented in the format of an article rather than a comic strip.
