  • These are the comics that were posted on xkcd on Tuesday.
    • Click to expand for a more detailed explanation:


  • Note that xkcd usually only posts a new comic Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
    • However, for several reasons comics have been posted on all week days
    • In the early days of the comic it happened frequently, but it has become very rare since LiveJournal closed.
      • Actually the last of these came the week after this, when 57: Wait For Me was pushed in, to make space for the three comics in the series Opening dialogue by Scott, since the Monday comic had already been released.
    • One notable exception that can lead to off-set release dates is April Fools day.
    • Other events (like a tribute, which has not yet happened on a Tuesday) can also result in Tuesday comics.
      • This happened first with 1551: Pluto released in honor of the New Horizons deep space probe making its flyby at Pluto.
      • Since then it has also occurred with 1608: Hoverboard made to celebrate the release of Randall's new book, Thing Explainer.
      • It happened again when How to was released on Tuesday with 2198: Throw.
      • And again with another book release for What if? 2. The comic 2672: What If? 2 Flowchart was released on the Tuesday the book was released.
    • The other weekdays are typically used in comic series which sometime extend for five days in one week.
      • Tuesdays comic will then be part 2, as can be seen several times.
      • It is not all of the series that are mentioned with a part number, as can be seen for Parody and Guest Week.
    • The above mentioned exceptions explains all Tuesday comics from 57 and on, except for 2717: L6 Lagrange Point.
  • Finally there could be incidences where a comic possibly has been miscategorized.
    • The date given should be when posted on xkcd, not here.
    • Please check up on this and explain here and at the comic why it has been released on a Tuesday.
    • The dates can be found in the xkcd archive
