    And none of the comments here will be able to explain the previous strip…

    Actually, this comic and this comic explain it.

    If you ask me, I think xkcd should either use a prepackaged comic book font, or at least write in a better handwriting. And stick figures are simply not sexy — I mean, how do you draw a sexy stick figure?

    Bi: The stick figures are part of the charm, as he’s demonstrated before that he can do significantly more sophisticated art (many early sketchdumps fall in that category). And while he has done strips depicting them in sexy situations (for instance, Hamiltonian), it’s secondary to the joke at hand — and, rarely, his stick-figure representations of well-known figures are a gag in and of themselves (compare: xkcd to life).

    Tim: Wouldn’t a linear combination of Conspiracy Theories and Duty Calls be more representative of a greater number of these responses? ;)

    Actually, I think they are by far the sexiest stick figures of all time. That’s quite an achievement.

    OK, I’ll let the stick figures go… but when it comes to the handwriting, I must still insist.

    What’s your problem with the handwriting? It’s perfectly legible.

    It’s wobbly and generally ugly — except for the words The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
