I wonder if the fact that it's unclear is in intentional, or if it was somehow a mistake Zachweix (talk) 13:46, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Is it just me, or has the image got some graphical artefacts?Cyclic3 (talk)

It's not just you! 13:52, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

I see it too, I saved a picture in case he fixes it Catnerd8695 (talk) 14:09, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Both "1x" and 2x versions are black and white, not grayscale, causing artifacts. The 2x image, being larger, have less artifacts. Maybe it's caused by some kind of bug, otherwise, if it was intentional, both versions would look similar.

Maybe Randall is having problems with his computer and had to scan the comic with a far less capable software tool than usual. Ianrbibtitlht (talk) 14:15, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

How does one contact him to let him know that he messed up when saving/editing/uploading/whatevering this comic? Fabian42 (talk) 14:16, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

Also, does he actually have a podcast? Fabian42 (talk) 14:18, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

I thought it might be a pun based on "new years resolution" but that would've been a couple of comics ago. Came here to see if anyone could explain it as there is normally reason behind his madness.-- 14:29, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

It's a 2-bit png, haven't seen one of those for over a decade 14:31, 9 January 2019 (UTC)

So you mean the only difference is that it has no greyscales? Fabian42 (talk) 14:36, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
