Former NASA employee turned comic writer Randall Munroe has a web comic called xkcd, and if you’ve never been a comic reader, this one will convert you.

 

This comic is not new to the Interwebz, but I’ve found it to be the only one that is continuously relevant to the way I view the world, and probably the way a lot of other 20-30 something-year-olds view it, too.

 

The comic has everything from a handy chart on radiation….

…to calling people out on their bullshit…

It’s peppered with sarcastic and witty humor…

One of my favorite parts is an interactive strip where you can click and drag the very last panel and explore the little world inside of it, effectively proving the point of the strip.

The comic is simple in design but has a whole lot to say. A new comic comes out every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and it’s worth the time to read.
