xkcd (sometimes XKCD) is a comedy online comic strip by Randall Munroe.

Summary

The comic uses stick figures to illustrate jokes about a variety of topics, such as "romance, sarcasm, math, and language." There is no main storyline, and most comics are one time gags. However, a few characters, notably "Hat Guy," make multiple appearances. xkcd is unusual in that many of the strips require a great deal of prior knowledge about advanced math or computers to fully appreciate the humor. A number of repeating gags, such as raptors, Wikipedia, and Guitar Hero are also used.

Content Warnings
