about

Randall Munroe describes xkcd as a webcomic of romance, sarcasm, math, and language. While it's practically required reading in the geek community, xkcd fans are as varied as the comic's subject matter. This book creates laughs from science jokes on one page to relationship humor on another. xkcd: volume 0 is the first book from the immensely popular webcomic with a passionate readership (just Google xkcd meetup").The artist selected personal and fan favorites from his first 600 comics. It was lovingly assembled from high-resolution original scans of the comics (the mouseover text is discreetly included), and features a lot of doodles, notes, and puzzles in the margins.The book is published by Breadpig, which donates all of the publisher profits from this book to Room to Read for promoting literacy in the developing world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Random Just random comics, great to pass time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic xkcd, the webcomic of randall munroe, is incredibly popular in the online world. However, with this book debut, I must first note that ALL the content in this book is viewable on his website. (He even explicitly states this in the introduction, however, having made hundreds of comics, this book is more a collection of fan and Munroe favourites). I thoroughly enjoy his work, because his comics tend to rely less on fancy drawing schools or toilet humour, and much more mathetmatics, science, and the verbal aspect, rather than illustration. I HIGHLY recommend this book if you are a fan of xkcd, a webcomic fan, or just interested in the emerging genre. Must-have for anyone interested in mathematic or scientific humor as well.
