These are the comics that were posted on xkcd on Thursday.

  • 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 two first on the list came during the period where comics were released both on LiveJorunal and on the then new xkcd site.
    • The other two weekdays are typically used in comic series which sometime extend for five days in one week.
      • Thursdays comic will then be part 4, 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.
    • Another case is if a comic becomes a tribute to a person who has just died. Then the comic will come out the day after, disregarding the normal release days.
    • The above mentioned exceptions explains all Tuesday comics up till the one about Steve in 961.
    • One other notable exception that can lead to off-set release dates is April Fools day.
      • This has not happened yet for a Thursday (as of 2015).
  • 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
