  • These comics are inspired by the 2019-20 pandemic of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 which results in the coronavirus disease 2019, COVID-19 for short.
  • The fifth of these, 2279: Symptoms, came out on March 11, 2020, the day when the outbreak was declared a world wide pandemic.
  • The first comic about COVID-19 came out as the first comic in March.
    • 19 comics in a row were related to this pandemic, except the April fool's comic, 2288: Collector's Edition, which was probably already in the making when the first comic came out (and even if so it's release was delayed until April 3rd). (So 19 out of 20, and all of the comics in March 2020 was about COVID-19. Many find pleasure in the fact that it was 19 comics on COVID-19!)
      • The first comic that was not clearly about COVID-19 was 2295: Garbage Math.
      • Although the garbage input may very well be data on COVID-19, there was no clear reference to the pandemic. Thus ending the streak!
