Format: Paperback
This book contains many of the best XKCD comics (including the mouse-over) and nice extras. Doodles, questions, enigmas... If you are a fan of the comics, this is definitely a must buy.

More Than a Print Version of the Free Comic Aug. 18 2010
By KAZ Vorpal, aka Michael Karl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author admonishes you, in his foreword, that you must have some kind of poor economic judgement, to be buying this book when the comic is free online.

But that does more to illustrate the kind of wit he has, than represent the truth, because the book is NOT a print-out of the pics you can get online, but is apparently based on the original, pen/pencil drawings (at least in part), giving you a (faint) insight into the process of their creation, plus giving a feeling of something authentic, like buying a cell from some favorite animation.

If you have NOT read the comic online, the domain name is XKCD (as you can infer from the name), go read it. If you'd have liked the book anyway, you'll be back to buy it out of sheer joy for the sarcky satire you've experienced.

Who will like XKCD?

* Anyone who likes Big Bang Theory. This is the one source of "nerd/geek" humor superior to that one.
* All Wikipedians, except the anal-retentive ones who didn't even want us to redirect the word malamanteau to the XKCD article.
* Those who are disgusted with "SyFy" for being ashamed of science fiction. (google "syfy, we disown you")
* The kind of people who hear about MIT pranks and think "I could have done better".
* Problem-solvers who, upon realizing that the a-hole ops of #Linux answer every question with "RTFM", spoof another IP while running a hacked ID validator and give wrong answers to their own questions, baiting the experts into jumping in with corrections. And then go help run #linpeople to answer the questions right.
* People who, having studied linguistics, math/physics, logic, engineering, or some other intellectual discipline, determine that the greatest benefit is all the extra puns it allows them to notice.
* Sarcastic romantics
* Pseudointellectuals...OK, they won't, but they'll feel obligated to pretend.
* I will. Did. Do. And that's what counts.

A must have for fans Aug. 26 2010
By A. Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This doesn't give you any new comics, but it does have a lulzy introduction that makes fun of you (the reader) for buying a printed version of a free webcomic. Still, if you're a fan of the series it's a must have just for the showcasing reasons alone. Also, whenever I want to introduce somebody to the GLORY that is XKCD, I can now say "here, browse through this!" instead of giving them a web address they'll likely never go to. Also, if you've never bought anything from the XKCD store but have been reading the comic for years (like me), this is your chance to give Randall some money finally!

A Must for XKCD Fans Dec 22 2010
By M. Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'll keep this short: If you enjoy the XKCD comics online enough to have gone back to re-read many of them more than once, you must get this. It's well made and there's enough cool little stuff everywhere to make it fun even if you know most of the strips by heart. You'll also be helping to support a worthy cause since 20% of the profits go to charity.

Many funny strips, but not the best selection of them. July 26 2014
By John Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Over the years, xkcd has released an enormous quantity of comics. Quite a few of these comics are simply hilarious were ingenious, and definitely deserve a five-star rating. I am not sure what the author did with this particular book. It did not seem to be any sort of "best of", but I did not get the impression that this was a chronological sampling of comics either (I could be mistaken though). Included in this book are several gems, but as a whole I did not feel that this selection of comics was worthy of very many stars when it came to rating the book.

Great webcomic, decent collection May 2 2011
By PK Levine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
XKCD is one of the funniest webcomics on the net, period . . . at least, if you're a geek who's into math, physics, and computer science. And this is a nice collection of some of XKCD's earliest strips. It's not a PERFECT collection -- I questioned a few of the choices made when deciding which comics to include -- but most of the funniest early strips are in here. And it's great to have a version of XKCD that you can read on the toilet. :)
