You could make a negative of the original image, but that would unmake dckx significantly better.

But the real winner(s?) here is everyone who only thought about making an xkcdsw, thus projecting the comic onto the imaginary number line.

Looking back on the last few pages, I'd like to give praise my favourites. I definitely liked this pair - nice link between the two. I also liked this one - very good and very true! And the second one of these was great - made no sense, but still great.

It already has a name; it's called a split. However, your word sounds slightly better, so I think I might use it.
