xkcd 2018 coming soon!

Postby belliott4488 » Tue Jun 19, 2018 3:48 pm UTC

I just occurred to me that xkcd #2018 will be coming soon, and as such, it will be the first xkcd comic to have been published in the same year as its number - and the last one, too, if the current numbering scheme persists.

How do you think this event should be recognized? Will it be? Should it be?

Then start all over again! We can get more (higher) "comic the same as year" each time, before each new reset…

:P

Simple.

Step 1: Create comic 2018.
Step 2: Place comic 2018 in a time capsule.
Step 3: Bury time capsule.
Step 4: Continue producing comics normally.
Step 5: Unearth comic 2018 in 2019 (or later).
Step 6: Publish comic 2018.

Avoids summoning Vinculum, deity of repeating numbers. Almost broke through the barrier in December 2012. Held only due to thousands of old videocassette recorders flashing 12:00. Weakened it considerably, however. Should not tempt fate.
Changes its form depending on the observer.
