Anyone try the brightness-contrast with the XKCD 2008 x-mas Special? 02:20, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Negative. 02:53, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
Yes. There is NO color information in those black panels, all pixels read 0x000000. 20:52, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
I tried it in Microsoft Office 2010 and got a faint, but very readable image just like the one above. 18:35, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

What do they mean "typical XKCD fashion"? What other comics have hidden messages in them? 22:11, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

The "typical xkcd fashion" line wasn't referring to the exact scenario of a hidden message in the comic. It was referring to the tendency of xkcd comics to have deeper messages (besides the explicit point being made) that may not be immediately visible. NealCruco (talk) 19:13, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

To me, the phrasing "I'm getting totally blacked out" suggests that the narrator is getting blackout drunk. Does anyone else get this impression, or am I crazy? 16:58, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Ah yes, I totally get that impression too. 14:45, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. Added that to the explanation. Yfmcpxpj (talk) 21:47, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

PDF links and DYN link on the comic page are no longer available.

Added links to archived versions of these, around the time the comic was published. – Yfmcpxpj (talk) 03:10, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

I'm glad both that there is a hidden joke and that somebody found and posted it, but the idea that somebody was playing around with brightness on every comic just to find if there is anything like that freaks me out even more than tongue awareness.
