I noticed this too. As discussed at User:DgbrtBOT there are two sizes of each comic. The default (smaller) size of 2407 looks much worse than the original, which you can find at I suggest we use the larger version for this comic. Alchemistmatt (talk) 20:18, 4 January 2021 (UTC)

It would appear that the first version of the picture of this day's cartoon presents artifacts due to an unusual export method. The image seems to have been exported using the 'nearest neighbor' resampling method, which would explain the jaggy edges. Usually, the images appear to be exported using bilinear downsampling from an white-grey-black original, resulting in a published version with a larger color palette. 20:17, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
