  • These comics are inspired by the 2020 pandemic of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.
  • The fifth of these comics, 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, and all 13 comics from March 2020 was about COVID-19.
    • A total of 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 its release was delayed until April 3rd). (So 19 out of 20).
    • Some find pleasure in the fact that it was 19 comics on COVID-19!
    • After those 20 comics more have appeared that are not directly related to COVID-19, but Randall keeps returning to the subject.
      • Also those comics that are not directly about COVID-19 could often be inspired by things related to COVID-19.
  • Note that although these comics are all related by references to COVID-19 they are not a comic series, as most of them has no direct relation to the story or subject of the others, except the overall relation to COVID-19.
    • There can be exceptions within the category, as there now is a direct series relating to the Coronavirus Genome.
