Full Answer

xkcd is a webcomic created by Randall Munroe. The creator of the comic describes it as a simple stick figure cartoon strip that discusses topics relating to technology, science, mathematics and relationships. The subject matter of the comic includes statements on life and love, but a dominant number of the strips contain mathematics or computer science jokes. These jokes usually refer to university-level subjects, but most are written in such a way that a clear understanding of the subject is not required to get the joke. Some strips also feature simple humor or pop-culture references. Although it has a cast of stick figures, the comic often features landscapes, intricate mathematical patterns, such as fractals, and elaborate graphs and charts.

Since July 2012, there has been a branch of xkcd called "xkcd What-If," updated every Tuesday. "What If?" answers unusual reader-submitted science questions in a humorous, but always mathematically sound way. It is presented in the format of an article rather than a traditional comic strip.
