Munroe, Randall. “xkcd.” xkcd: A webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math and language. Randall Munroe, 2005. Web. < http://xkcd.com >
xkcd covers a wide variety of topics. Sometimes it can cover topics as run of the mill as everyday life situations and then it switches to complicated math or science problems. Parodying of other comics also happens. The randomness and the sheer unexpected nature of what could pop up next in the comics is what draws readers in. Come comics are even multimedia: hover the mouse over the comic for more information or even click and drag and readers will find themselves in another world. No matter what the topic, Munroe attempts to make them all accessible: readers do not have to have a working knowledge of any of the topics in order to understand the punchline.
