Jump to: navigation, search will take you to the large version, which the comic currently doesn't have a link to. I expect that will be fixed shortly. 05:30, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I just realized he has a text link for it in the top banner. I'd delete my comment, but that's rude on a wiki. Whatever. 05:35, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

The bottom diagonal seems to be mislabelled? Shouldn't it be "Stories written X years and set X years ago" instead of "set 2X years ago"? -- 05:38, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

It is correct, if you see both relative from now. The middle line is written X years ago and set X years ago and thus contemporary. Sebastian -- 06:46, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I'm not sure where to open bug tickets, but Lest Darkness Fall actually takes place ~1500 years ago, not ~500. 06:35, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Kind of reminds of a Minkowski diagram. Sebastian -- 06:50, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
